Kesha really is taking her life back.
On Sunday, the pop princess earned a standing ovation after slaying a powerful performance of Bob Dylan's It Ain't Me Babe alongside Ben Folds and violinist Rob Moose.
Everyone was eagerly awaiting the 29-year-old's time on the T-Mobile Arena stage, considering Dr. Luke had almost banned her from singing during the show.

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:
"We were slated to do it for weeks, and [last week] she was heading over to my house and we were getting ready to practice and I got the word that it was in fact canceled. Rob Moose [of yMusic], who played violin [at the BBMAs], and I had arranged it for a small chamber ensemble. And [during the Orpheum performance last week], it went over really well. But then we got the call: 'Actually, you're on [for the BBMAs], bring the ensemble.' 'Oh, we can't because they're all on airplanes now,' so Rob and I just pared it down."
But the 49-year-old admitted that the TiK ToK artist didn't have any intention of calling out her alleged abuser at the ceremony.
He explained why the singer kept her promise to leave the Kemosabe Records label head out of her TV time, saying:
