Kesha allowed to perform at Billboard Music Awards

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Kesha would no longer be performing at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards because Dr. Luke's label (Kemosabe Records) had revoked the approval initially given to her.

Kemosabe Records issued a new statement today (May 19) confirming that she has now been given the green light to perform at the ceremony a long as she doesn't use the TV time to "discuss the litigation". The statement reads:  

"Kesha’s performance on the Billboard Music Awards was always approved, in good faith. Approval was only suspended when Kemosabe learned Kesha was to use the performance as a platform to discuss the litigation. Now that Kemosabe has obtained assurances, that it is relying upon, from Kesha, her representatives and Dick Clark Productions that neither Kesha nor her supporters will use the performance as such a platform, the approval has been restored."

On Wednesday this week, Kesha performed a cover of Dylan's "It Ain't Me, Babe" on stage with Ben Folds in Los Angeles, which she was preparing for the BBMAs.
