This week's performance photos catch some great musicians in some amazing poses. Sometimes these artists get so into a song or the crowd and a photographer catches just the right moment, making for some pretty sweet performance photos.
Today we have Ne-Yo performing with Sports Illustrated models, The Pretty Reckless' Taylor Momsen getting naughty on stage and Grammy Best New Artist winner Esperanza Spalding rocking the upright bass, among many, many others.
Check out Ke$ha above performing during the Bud Light Hotel event in Dallas, Texas.
