Kesha won't perform at the BBMAs after Dr. Luke's label 'rescinded its approval'

'Die Young' sensation Kesha was rumoured to be performing at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards on May 22, but a legal ruling has now prevented her from doing so. 

It has now been confirmed that Kesha had "accepted an invitation" to perform at the star-studded ceremony, but Dr. Luke's record label Kemosabe Records has revoked the permission initially given to her.

Dick Clark Productions issued a statement on the unfortunate news, which reads: "Kesha accepted an invitation to perform on the show and she received written approval from Dr. Luke's record label, Kemosabe Records. Kemosabe subsequently rescinded its approval following a media report on Wednesday May 11 regarding Kesha’s appearance on the BBMAs. Unfortunately, Kesha and Kemosabe have since been unable to come to an agreement for Kesha to perform on the show."

DCP, however, is hopeful that an agreement might be reached before the event takes place: "Dick clark productions has a long standing relationship with Kesha. We hope that the parties can come to an arrangement such that we can continue that long standing relationship with a performance by Kesha on the Billboard Music Awards stage on May 22nd."
