Ethereal pop goddess Ke$ha seems to have recovered from Britney’s recent blunder –in which Robotney proved that she barely knew of her existence by publicly mispronouncing her name as “keesha“, despite the fact that the two have worked ‘together’ before– because K-Dollar was on fire tonight during her first ever performance of “Die Young”, live on Australian X Factor.
Ke$ha’s clearly done her homework on how to put on a good show after being repeatedly blasted back in the day for her supposed lack of on stage prowess. The 25-year-old delivered a wild warrior themed spectacle complete with crazy costumes, a tribal dance break, a drum solo, Illuminati references, truckloads of glitter, and yes, live vocals that actually sounded good.
The whole thing was entertaining enough to make you forget all about how totally fine but not quite amazing “Die Young” really is. But despite it’s so-so status, the song is still doing incredibly well, reaching No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and out-charting Rihanna’s dull “Diamonds”. I’m just worried that if Kween Ke$ha doesn’t put out a more distinguishable single next time, she’ll become the female Jason DeRulo (or more recently, Chris Brown) and won’t be able to sell an album to save her life.
Anyway, peep Ke$ha’s sparkly X Factor performance below.
