At the 2016 Brit Awards, the "Hello" singer picked up an award for Best British Female Solo Artist. While the honor didn't come as the biggest shocker to fans, the singer's acceptance speech may have caught a few people by surprise.
"I'd like to take a quick second to thank my management and my record label for embracing the fact that I'm a woman and being encouraged by it," she shared while holding her trophy. "And I'd also like to take this moment to publicly support Kesha. Thank you very much."
As many people know, Kesha is in an ongoing legal battle with music producer Dr. Luke. Just last Friday, the "TiK ToK" singer was in court after she asked for a preliminary injunction that would allow her to release music outside of Dr. Luke's purview. A judge denied the request leaving the singer in tears.

Despite the recent legal setback, Kesha continues to receive plenty of support from a variety of musicians. Zedd and Jack Antonoff have offered to help make new music with the singer. Taylor Swift donated $250,000 to help with finances. And Lady Gaga is just one of the many female artists who have shown their support on social media.
The outpouring has been felt by Kesha who recently expressed her appreciation on Instagram.
"I am beyond words in gratitude. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have," she wrote to her followers. "A million times over and forever thank you. The support I have received has left my face swollen from tears. I love you all so much. A statement too large for this format is coming…"

While many eyes remain on Kesha and Dr. Luke's upcoming trial, it's only right to acknowledge the biggest winners at Wednesday night's award show.
In fact, Adele's big prizes including the Global Success Award comes just months before the Grammy winner will hit the road for a world tour in honor of her critically acclaimed album 25.
"I want to thank my boyfriend for supporting me," she shared with the audience. "You're probably getting f--king bored of me! I honestly can't tell you…to come back, oh, I got really lost for a while, like, I didn't know If I'd ever come back. And for you all to be so kind to me is so nice."
