Kesha's return to music has been hard-fought, much-awaited, and loaded with emotion — all of which come through in her powerful ballad “Praying,” her first single since her years-long legal battle with her former producer and alleged abuser Dr. Luke. The song was also met with widespread critical acclaim and her first Grammy nominations, including one for Best Pop Solo Performance — which is why fans were shocked that she lost to Ed Sheeran.
that category was loaded with female power houses, but Ed took home the award. Kesha's fans were not having it....

Still not over Ed Sheeran winning a Grammy for a generic song about sex over Kesha’s song about overcoming sexual assault and forgiving her rapist. #GRAMMYs

I guess it’s a good thing Kesha didn’t win over Ed Sheeran, since the music industry doesn’t seem to care about examining its abuses of power

"Ed Sheeran" is a hell of a way to mispronounce "Kesha."
I get the message, but Shape Of You is a better song.
