The appearance comes after the singer's long legal battle with her producer, Dr. Luke.

As you probably already know, in February a New York judge denied Kesha's plea to get out of her exclusive contract with the producer, who she alleges sexually and physically abused her for years.

The DJ had previously reached out to Kesha over Twitter following the verdict, offering to help produce a song for the pop star.
