Kesha made a surprise appearance at Coachella during Reneé Rapp's set.

The singer performed her hit "Tik Tok," but notably changed the opening lyrics to "Wake up in the morning like f— P. Diddy," giving the middle finger alongside Rapp.

This change on Sunday came amid ongoing allegations of abuse against Diddy.

Last November, Kesha dropped his name entirely from the song during a performance, saying "Wake up in the morning feeling just like me." Diddy has faced numerous lawsuits alleging assault, gang rape and sexual abuse. His homes were recently raided by Homeland Security.

Kesha's altered lyrics at Coachella have sparked a fresh wave of discussion surrounding the allegations against Diddy. Aside from her cameo, Rapp delivered a powerful performance of songs from her debut EP and full-length album.
