Watch Kesha Perform ‘Die Young’ on ‘X Factor’ Australia
Playing up the fact that her upcoming album is called ‘Warrior,’ Kesha emerged wearing a crown and ripped red cape, while her backup dancers were covered in war paint. They banged on drums while she sang the hook, “I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums / Oh what a shame that you came here with someone / So while you’re here in my arms / Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young.”
As the electro synths joined the mix, Kesha ripped off the red attire to reveal a tight gold bodysuit. She and her team executed the choreographed routine and the singer even joined in on drums during an instrumental percussive breakdown. “It was glitter-filled, so it was good,” she said afterwards of her performance.
When can we expect to see Kesha bring the live version of ‘Die Young’ stateside? A good bet is Nov. 18 at the American Music Awards, where she’s a confirmed performer. ‘Warrior’ hits stores on Dec. 4.
