Coachella has been full of musical surprises like Kanye West’s two minute silent rap with A$AP Rocky. Granted no one is really surprised anymore when Kanye takes to the stage unannounced, though.
But no performance was more surprising or well-received than Kesha’s rendition of Zedd’s True Colours.
Earlier in the year, the Clarity hit-maker had tweeted his support to Kesha amidst her ongoing court battle with Sony and Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald.
The singer’s triumphant and defiant return to the stage had the Coachellans cheering so hard, if there was a roof, it would have lifted off.
Kesha sang, “I’m not afraid’ and ‘I won’t apologise’ in an emotional and powerful rendition of the title track form Zedd’s last album. The song choice was the perfect fit and you just know she felt every word she sang.
That note at 2:25 though!
