Last night's Billboard Music Awards were more than just another unnecessary awards show and excuse for a red carpet—it was also the latest battlefield in the ongoing war between singer Kesha and her former producer/mentor/alleged abuser Dr. Luke.

Judges have repeatedly refused to allow Kesha out of her contract with the Sony-based producer, despite the fact that her lawyer compared it to "slavery." That comparison seemed to bear fruit in mid-May, when news broke that Kesha's planned performance at the BBMAs had been nixed by Sony when they heard that she planned to address the controversy onstage.
