Kesha performs "Praying" at the 60th annual Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden, Jan. 28, 2018, in NY.

Many viewers were highly anticipating Kesha's performance of "Praying" at the 2018 Grammys. "Powerful. Godspeed", tweeted Maria Shriver.

Kesha delivered an empowering debut performance on the Grammys stage Sunday night with an emotional rendition of her ballad "Praying" alongside Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Julia Michaels and Andra Day.

It's the kind of sentiment that is acceptable and laudable in 2018; in 2014, however, Kesha's crusade to bring down her alleged abuser was a startling outlier.

Rainbow was released before #MeToo, but has dovetailed with the beginnings of a reckoning for sexism, misogyny and abuse of power. Dr. Luke countersued, and as of now, Kesha still hasn't broken free of her contract. He has denied the allegations.

Chairman Mark Cohon said they will take the time to lay out more arguments as to why it should call Canada home. Toronto, a growing tech hub, was the only city outside the US on the list .

Kesha, backed by an army of female singers and songwriters all wearing white, sang "Praying" Sunday night at the 60th annual Grammy Awards.

Earlier in the evening, Kesha lost out to Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You" for best pop solo performance.

It was perhaps the most powerful Grammys moment we've seen in a while and was a tribute to a movement that isn't about individuals but is about changing a culture. This song is her comeback anthem, and we were hoping that it was going to win at one point during the awards show.

Kesha (rear, center) is embraced by her fellow singers after performing "Praying". "It felt like an emotional raw victory for myself, one step closer to healing". She dropped her sexual abuse case against him in Los Angeles in August 2016. "I never could have known what would've happened these past few years", she wrote on Twitter.
