Looks like Kesha will be performing at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards after all!

Dr. Luke's label Kemosabe Records preciously rescinded its approval allowing the singer to take the stage at Sunday's show, but on Thursday, the approval was restored.

In an official comment obtained by E! News, Kemosabe Records stated, "Kesha's performance on the Billboard Music Awards was always approved, in good faith. Approval was only suspended when Kemosabe learned Kesha was to use the performance as a platform to discuss the litigation. Now that Kemosabe has obtained assurances, that it is relying upon, from Kesha, her representatives and Dick Clark Productions that neither Kesha nor her supporters will use the performance as such a platform, the approval has been restored."


Buzzfeed was first to report the news. 

A spokesperson for dick clark productions told E! News in a statement: "We are pleased that Kesha and Kemosabe Records have reached an agreement and very much look forward to having Kesha perform on the Billboard Music Awards this Sunday night on ABC."

Watch E!'s Live From The Red Carpet 2016 Billboard Music Awards special starting at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT on Sunday, May 22nd
