The legal battle between Dr. Luke and Kesha are still ongoing, but Kesha managed to release her album "Rainbows" a year ago and perform her single "Praying" at Sunday night's Grammy awards. In light of the song's release, the singer penned an essay on the Lenny blog where she expressed the meaning of the ballad.
Kesha was also nominated for two awards on the night, in the categories of Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album.
Kesha dedicated her performance to the #MeToo movement and to survivors of sexual assault. The singer's drawn-out legal battle with the producer Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald (whom she has accused of sexual, emotional, and physical abuse) has practically made her the music industry's poster woman for the movement.

When writing "Praying" with Ben Abraham and Ryan Lewis, "I just felt as if I had gotten a huge weight off of my shoulders", Keshatweeted Saturday. "I never could have known what would've happened these past few years", she wrote on Twitter.
Kesha performed at the Grammys surrounded by fellow stars including Cyndi Lauper, Bebe Rexha, Camila Cabello and Andra Day, who offered symbolic and literal support - belting out the song with her.
