All eyes were on Kesha at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards held last night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

To say that she has gone through a lot these past couple of months is an understatement. After her scheduled Billboard performance was canceled due to legal battles with her producer Dr. Luke, the audience seemed thrilled to see the Timber singer perform her emotional rendition of Bob Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me Babe.”

Check out a part of the spine-tingling performance yourself.

The Tik Tok singer stayed in character throughout the awards show and even arrived in an eggplant purple Gucci suit that paid tribute to Bob Dylan and the late Prince.

Kesha received a standing ovation, a much-deserved reaction for her first televised performance since the lawsuit. She described her fashion inspiration on Instagram:

very lucky to be wearing a classic nudie suit on this carpet. this piece of vintage clothing is truly a piece of art ( like. museum piece ) and an homage to both Bob Dylan and Prince. thank u so so much to the nudie suit crew for sharing this art and letting it adorn my body tonight. I’m very appreciative and grateful 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Kesha amazingly pulled off the purple velvet suit with gold embroidery. It was the perfect fashion tribute to the two legendary singers.
