Kesha might be fighting a legal battle that's preventing her from making more music, but there's no reason she can't act! The singer/songwriter/sometime-actress is heading to the small screen for the second time this TV season, this time appearing as herself on ABC's Nashville.
E! News confirmed that the pop star, who is embroiled in a lawsuit against record producer Dr. Luke, will drop by for a one episode cameo on the soap, playing herself. Earlier this season, she appeared on one episode of Jane the Virgin as Jane's noisy musician neighbor. Also appearing on Nashville in season four are country stars Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett, who will play themselves as well. The Hollywood Reporter originally reported the news.
The stars won't appear in the same episodes, which are all slated for the latter half of the show's current fourth season.

E! News reported yesterday that Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough, who is taking a season off from DWTS to star in Singin' In the Rain on Broadway, will reprise his role as Juliette's (Hayden Panettiere) leading man in her Patsy Cline biopic. He'll be back for multiple episodes this spring.
When Nashville returns on Wednesday, we'll see the long-awaited wedding between Rayna and Deacon. Yes, it's actually happening! Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and singer/songwriter Jim Lauderdale will both appear as themselves in the episode. Later this season, the show adds a pair of new (fictional) country stars to the mix, played by Steve Kazee and Alicia Witt.
Nashville airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
