After a week of rumors that Kesha would perform at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards this Sunday (May 22), dick clark productions announced in a statement today (May 17) that the pop star will not, as of now, be able to perform on the show. And as with much of Kesha's recent legal drama, Dr. Luke's label Kemosabe Records is involved.
"Kesha accepted an invitation to perform on the show and she received written approval from Dr. Luke's record label, Kemosabe Records," dick clark productions said in a statement. "Kemosabe subsequently rescinded its approval following a media report on Wednesday May 11 regarding Kesha’s appearance on the BBMAs. Unfortunately, Kesha and Kemosabe have since been unable to come to an agreement for Kesha to perform on the show."
