It's no secret this year's Wisconsin basketball team is a gritty, determined bunch who embraces the underdog role. The team seems to have adopted a rally song; "Die Young" by Ke$ha. They perform pre-game drills to the Pop song and were caught on camera celebrating with it in the locker room after their 65-62 OT win over Michigan on Saturday.
Well, the Badgers' adoption of the song captured the attention of it's artist, as Ke$ha tweeted this earlier this morning.

Ke$ha links to a fantastic video break down of the Badgers' celebration by CBS Sports' Jeff Borzello. Ke$ha has high regards for the video, calling it "maybe the hottest/cutest thing I've EVER seen". Not bad compliments from someone who's sold two million albums, eh?
Of course the Badgers were pleased as punch to hear that Ke$ha enjoyed their little dance routine, or whatever you want to call it.
Here are some of the reactions from Wisconsin players on Ke$ha's tweet.

JD Wise with the oh so subtle shot at the Michigan warm ups.

…..And the winner from Duje Dukan.
If the Badgers were determined enough to meet President Obama, setting up a date with Ke$ha should be no problem. How about a half time performance at the Kohl Center.
