Spotted: Ke$ha Heats Up ‘Today’

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

No matter what you think about Ke$ha‘s smash hit debut album Animal, you can’t knock her work ethic. After grinding out another great performance as part of the Last Girl on Earth Tour (also featuring Rihanna) at a sold-out Madison Square Garden on Thursday night (August 12), Ke$ha got an extra-early wake-up call so she could perform live in Rockefeller Center for NBC’s “Today” on Friday morning (August 13). She was no worse for wear, as she moved and sounded as sharp as she ever has, bouncing through “Tik Tok,” “Your Love Is My Drug” and “Take It Off” to the delight of the crowd gathered outside the show’s studio. The Last Girl on Earth Tour continues on Saturday night (August 14) in Atlantic City, New Jersey and continues on through the end of the month.

She wasn’t the only artist on the morning show circuit on Friday morning, as the Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato took over Central Park on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and Train jived through “Hey Soul Sister” on CBS’ “The Early Show.” Click here for these photos as well as the entire “Spotted” archive, which features over 400 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert, Madonna, Katy Perry and 50 Cent!
