Pop music's reigning, resident bada-- Kesha debuted her new single 'C'Mon' on tonight's (Dec. 6) elimination episode of 'X Factor.'

Looking like a warrior queen in black thigh-high boots and that wild mane of blonde hair, the 'Die Young' singer performed amid a light show and visual panels that depicted images of tigers, photos of her sexy self and more.

She was obviously performing to tape, as most acts do during these particular performances, especially when they have layers and harmonies in their songs. But it wasn't about her singing or not singing certain parts. It was about how she commanded the stage. Girl has presence.

The highlight -- literally -- of her performance? Her light up palms. Her hands were illuminated in green. It wasn't quite E.T. style -- that'd have been a light up finger -- but it was pretty rad.

For the last moment of the song, Kesha was joined by male dancers wearing tiger heads. That's easily a nod to her animal$, which is her "pet" name for her legion of fans.

The biggest question we had about Kesha's perf? No, it had nothing to do with those naughty, NSFW photos of the singer, who has a perennial "IDGAF" attitude, that circulated earlier today.

We wonder if she busted Britney Spears' stones about referring to her as "Keesha" on an ep of the show earlier this season. Oopsie! Let's hope the girls hugged it out and talked collabos.
