Ever since she exploded onto the music scene with her hit party song, "TiK ToK," Ke$ha has been constantly evolving as an artist.

Sure, she got her start by singing praises for brushing her teeth with a bottle of Jack Daniels and waking up hungover in bathtubs. But as she churned out hit after hit song, Ke$ha ditched her jean shorts for jumpers and chose to go more artsy than hot mess. Not that we were complaining, but we kind of missed her carefree days.

So you can imagine our (pleasant) surprise when Ke$ha went back to her roots for her 2013 American Music Awards performance of her new hit, "Timber," with AMAs host Pitbull. Rocking the shortest pair of daisy dukes and cowboy boots, the singer gave a fun, casual, and light performance that took us back to her early party days.

Surrounded by girls rocking their best fringe, the stage was lit up like a dance floor at a local southern bar. And we wanted to join in on the fun.
