The 60th Annual Grammy Awards were a diverse vision of musical talent, with countless performers bringing the heat across a wide variety of genres. One of the most powerful performances was Kesha's "Praying," which she sang with the help of other female singers like Cyndi Lauper, Bebe Rexha and Camila Cabello and the Resistance Revival Choruswomen.
The song spoke out against sexual assault but also preached forgiveness and self sufficiency in one of the night's most emotional, powerful moments. The women behind Kesha wore all white and sported white roses, a movement similar to the Golden Globes' all-black dress code to stand in support with Time's Up, the movement funding victims of sexual abuse in the workplace.
So who wore a white rose to the Grammys on Sunday night? Continue ahead to find out.
While Kesha stood out from the crowd on the red carpet for not wearing a physical white rose, the singer revealed an embroidered one on her lapel.
"'after everything you've done I can thank you for how strong I have become,' " she tweeted, referencing her lyrics from the song. "thank you to the @RecordingAcad, the women on stage with me tonight, and everyone who has supported me through this whole journey."
Before the show, she wrote that "It felt like an emotional raw victory for myself, one step closer to healing. I never could have known what would've happened these past few years."
She continued, "I just want to say that I needed this song in a very real way. I'm so proud and nervous and overwhelmed to be performing it at the Grammy's on Sunday, and if you need it I hope this song finds you."prevnext
