Kesha may not be able to perform at Sunday's Billboard Music Awards after Dr. Luke's record label withdrew its approval.
Dick Clark Productions, which puts on the show, said in a statement provided to Billboard on Tuesday that Kesha had planned to perform on the show.
But Kemosabe Records rescinded its written approval of the performance after a report about Kesha's upcoming appearance surfaced earlier this month. The statement read, in part, "Unfortunately, Kesha and Kemosabe have since been unable to come to an agreement for Kesha to perform on the show."
