Grammys 2018: Most Inspiring Moments (Featuring Kesha)
With only nine awards handed out on air out of 84, the focus of the night was, as usual, on the performances.
Kesha's #MeToo Moment
Kesha didn't stand alone — she came with backup, a chorus of women in white led by Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Julia Michaels, Andra Day and Bebe Rexha. Her performance of "Praying," a ballad off "Rainbow," her first album since 2012, was an emotional exorcism.

Camila Cabello Speaks for Dreamers
Ms. Cabello, the former member of Fifth Harmony whose solo debut album just went to No. 1, stepped out of Kesha's backup choir to speak up for Dreamers. Born in Havana, Ms. Cabello was brought to the United States by her Cuban mother as a child and allowed in; her Mexican father later joined them. "Just like the Dreamers," she said, "my parents brought me to this country with nothing in their pockets but hope. They showed me what it means to work twice as hard and never give up."
