While the #MeToo and Time's Up conversations have mainly been focusing on Hollywood, stars at last night's Grammys made a point to show their support for the movement against sexual harassment and assault.

Similar to actors wearing all-black and Time's Up pins at the Golden Globes, musicians and attendees decided to carry white roses to show solidarity with victims of sexual assault and harassment.

The idea was put forward by high-profile women in the music industry including Meg Harkins, senior vice president of marketing at Roc Nation. "We choose the white rose because historically it stands for hope, peace, sympathy and resistance,” an email from the collective read.

Kendrick Lamar pinned a rose to his lapel while Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Cardi B carried single long-stemmed roses. Lorde decided to skip the white rose, instead choosing to sew a passage by the feminist artist Jenny Holzer into the back of her dress.

But the biggest statement at the Grammys was Kesha's impassioned performance. Kesha has been at the center of the Time's Up discussion in music, as she famously fought a lengthy legal battle against Sony, asking the label to free her from her record contract with Dr. Luke, who she accused of sexual assault.

Dressed in white, Kesha sang an emotional rendition of "Prayers," later taking to Twitter to thank everyone who supported her "through this whole journey."

When introducing Kesha, Janelle Monae stated that she was "proud to stand in solidarity" with other women in the music industry. "we come in peace but we mean business," she said. "To those who would dare try and silence us, we offer you two words: Time's up."

Now, check out the most meme-able moments from last night's Grammy's.
