Kesha has been all but out of the spotlight since she filed a lawsuit against her former producer Dr. Luke last October accusing him of sexually abusing her. Now, unable to perform, the once-popular singer has fallen from the public eye. Hashtag campaigns like #freekesha are a testament to the loyalty of her fans, but are not enough in the face of the cold shoulder that the music industry has given her.

That averages out to around one winning slot out of the four to six people/groups inducted as performers into the Hall of Fame each year. Read More
