Ben Folds Opens Up About Kesha's Dr. Luke Drama & Says Their Performance At The Billboard Music Awards Was Her 'Declaration Of Independence!'

See what Ben has to say about the Dr. Luke drama!

On Monday, the former Ben Folds Five frontman opened up to Billboard about their emotional collaboration, explaining that the Sony producer screwed up their original plan by pulling the plug:

OMG, this is so heartbreaking!

It ain't the Billboard Music Awards, but this performance had to be seen anyway!

After Kesha's ability to perform was nixed by legal adversary Dr. Luke, she just had to get the song out anyway.

This is a GREAT gig for Jewel!

The sweetie songstress has just signed up to be the next judge on NBC's The Sing-Off.

It definitely takes talent to judge talent so Jewel BELONGS in this role. She'll be joined at the judges table by Ben Folds and Shawn Stockman from Boyz II Men.

We like that line up A LOT!

Jewel is replacing Sara Bareilles who decided not to return after her one-and-done season last year.

Nick Lachey has hosted the show since it first aired in 2009, and he'll be back for the 4th season as well!

But they've yet to announce when The Sing-Off premieres! Hurry up and tell us so we can mark our calendars! We wouldn't dare miss our girl Jewel doing her thing!
