Kesha has just delivered one of the Grammys' most powerful moments with a performance of her hit Praying.

The pop star, who spent years embroiled in a legal battle over sexual assault claims with producer Dr Luke, performed with a star-studded choir of fellow stars including Camila Cabello, Cyndi Lauper, Bebe Rexha and more.

She performed while fighting back tears and at the end of the set, the women around her all shared tears and hugs in support.

The performance followed an impassioned speech by R&B star Janelle Monae, who spoke about standing in support for all the women in the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements but added that it was the music industry's problem too.

She said: "We come in peace, but we mean business. For those of you who would try to silence us, we have two words for you: Time's Up."

Kesha's powerful performance had viewers in tears, as they took to social media to express their support.
