Fresh off her show stopping performance at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, P!nk was back in the spotlight again for Super Bowl LII. The big news was that the singer was battling the flu ahead of her performance of the National Anthem. But a little sickness wasn't gonna keep the “Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken” singer down. P!nk delivered another stunning performance singing the National Anthem, and under duress. It was heroic performance. You can watch it above.
But how could she miss it? The Doylestown, Pennsylvania native is huge Eagles fan. P!nk could barely contain her excitement in an Instagram photo you can check out below.
Besides performing at the Grammys, P!nk was also nominated for Best Pop Solo performance. Although Ed Sheeran grabbed the win, P!nk has been nominated for 19 Grammy Awards and won three in her storied career. Like Lady Gaga, the National Anthem performance could precede an invitation to perform at the Halftime Show down the road.
P!nk is heading out on the road this spring for her Beautiful Trauma world tour. Follow this link to browse AXS for tickets to select P!nk dates.
Trying to practice the flu away. I’ve been waiting to sing this song since 1991 when I saw my idol, Whitney Houston, own this song. And now, my chance has finally come. And it just so happens that this chance comes when I have two small Petri dish kids who literally cough INTO MY MOUTH and rub their snot on my cheek. You can’t write this stuff I swear! And here we are. I’ve arrived at another one of my dreams which is slowly becoming a sort of nightmare. I will tell you, this is one of the biggest honors of my life, singing this song in front of my family, my military family, my dad and brother and step mama and family and the world. And the EAGLES!?!?! I promise I will do my best, as I always do. As far as the gremlins that got me into this mess, you can cough at me for the rest of your lives. If it’s a contest, babies, you win. #spreadthelove #spreadthegerms #pleasegivememyvoiceback #ificansingimgonnakillit
