Kesha’s lawsuit against Dr. Luke didn’t go her way, but she’s proven that, despite the ruling, she’s not defeated and still very passionate about making music.
Taking to the stage at Coachella music festival on Saturday, April 16, Kesha and her rainbow-colored locks joined Zedd (who previously voiced his support for her via Twitter) for a very powerful performance of his track “True Colors.”

It’s been a rough few months for Kesha, whose life has come under intense public scrutiny, but it’s wonderful to see that she’s not letting her legal battles squash her spirit and has continued to pursue her dreams and do what she loves. The performance was powerful and telling, with lyrics like “No, no no no I won’t apologize for the fire in my eyes / Let me show you my, my true colors, it ain’t no rainbow.”
The musical performance marked Kesha’s first public appearance since her February court case, and she was very excited about it. Taking to Instagram, she shared a photo of herself on stage looking out onto the crowd, and captioned the image with a special thank you to Zedd.
“Thank u @zedd for letting me share the stage with u at @coachella last night!!! dreams come true I was SO so so nervous haha. magical times,” she wrote — and fans were thrilled to see her performing again and reacted to the post with great excitement.
