It's only in the last month that Kesha has begun performing again, following her lengthy legal fight with producer Dr. Luke, whom she has accused of sexually assaulting her.

"I want to dedicate this song to every man, woman, child, animal, that has ever been abused," she told the crowd, according to People.
