Kesha triumphantly returns to late night with a performance of “Praying” on Fallon: Watch

The singer's emotional performance came on the eve of the release of her first record in four years, Rainbow


    Kesha has emerged stronger than ever this summer amidst her legal battles with sentient piece of dog feces “Dr.” Luke with an empowering and confessional album, Rainbow, in tow. The latest step in her I-am-woman-hear-me-fucking-roar comeback was a stop on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, where she belted out the album’s lead single, “Praying”.

    The emotional performance conveys what a release both this album and her return to performing have been for Kesha, who has been locked in a legal battle with Dr. Assclown for years over his alleged rape of the singer. Backed by a four-piece string section and her bolo tie-wearing band, Kesha seemed to deliver the song directly to the man who has caused her so much pain. With her eyes locked tight, she belted out each note, ending on a gasp like one last bit of rage and redemption escaping her soul. Check it out above.

    Rainbow is out today and can be streamed in full here. Check out her announced North American dates below.
