We are so pumped at the news: Kesha will be performing at the Billboard Music Awards, after all!

On Tuesday, we reported that Kemosabe Records had rescinded the permission Kesha needed to perform at the Billboards. The record company stated:

Kesha took to Instagram that day to explain that despite the rumors, her performance was never intended as a statement on her legal dispute with Dr. Luke, claiming she had intended to cover Bob Dylan as an homage to her favorite songwriter:

“I just wanted to make very clear that this performance was about me honoring one of my favorite songwriters of all time and has never had anything at all to do with Dr. Luke,” she wrote on Instagram. “I was never going to use a picture of him, speak of him or allude to my legal situation in any way. I simply wanted to sing a song I love to honor an artist I have always looked up to. thank u all for the continued support.”

However, in a statement to BuzzFeed News, Dr. Luke’s record label Kemosabe claimed it had always been in support of Kesha’s BBMA performance:

So, it looks like Kesha will DEFINITELY be performing at the Billboards. We are so excited to see Kesha’s performance and Bob Dylan tribute this Sunday night!
