Kesha earned a standing ovation from her peers at the May 22 Billboard Music Awards, following her epic performance of Bob Dylan’s, ‘It Ain’t Me, Babe.’ They really loved it — some even took to Twitter to send her more love after the show! See what they said, here.
Kesha‘s Billboard Music Awards performance was probably the most highly-anticipated number of the night. And a lot of that had to do with ongoing legal battle with Dr. Luke. People just want to see her succeed, and that she did, thanks to her performance of Bob Dylan‘s “It Ain’t Me, Babe” on May 22.
Those who were extremely moved by Kesha’s return to the stage — the same one that almost didn’t happen — included Laverne Cox and more. To see celeb reactions to Kesha’s performance, look at the tweets below:

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Kesha’s performance almost didn’t happen. Kesha and Dr. Luke have been at odds ever since she made serious allegations about him sexually assaulting her. Apparently, Dr. Luke was nervous about her BBMAs performance, as he felt the star might use the opportunity to make a public statement about him.
Kesha didn’t end up slamming Dr. Luke. Instead, she used her time on stage to demonstrate what she does best, and that’s sing. We were so happy to see Kesha return to the stage, even if she wasn’t singing a song that’s hers.
