Of all the singers we've featured so far in our Best Live Vocals series, Kesha Rose may very well be the most underrated — or at least the most underestimated.

Known for her delightfully messy trash-pop aesthetic, the artist formerly known as Ke$ha made a glittery name for herself with Jack Daniels-soaked party jams like "Tik Tok," "Your Love Is My Drug" and "Blow." But true Animals — the one who have dug a bit deeper into her back catalog — already know that the pop wild child is a more-than-capable vocalist, and when she gets emotional ("The Harold Song"!), she surprises with some of her actual best work.

With her ongoing legal battle in mind, we've put together a compilation of some of Kesha's finest live vocal performances to remember why she first won her way into our hearts in the first place. With any luck, she'll be able to finally sing new songs for us very soon. #FreeKesha!
