P!nk may sometimes perform in the air on a trapeze, but that certainly doesn’t mean she’s forgotten how to put on a stellar performance on the ground. She proved this on Saturday.
The pop superstar stopped by the latest episode of "Saturday Night Live" to perform “What About Us” and “Beautiful Trauma,” off her newly released album of the same name.
For her first performance, P!nk delivered the catchy “What About Us” with flawless precision and displayed a type of voice control that only someone who’s been performing for over 20 years can do. Arguably, the highlight of the performance is when the Pennsylvania native walked over to her backup singers, put her arm around one of them and they all sang together. It showed a genuine connection between the ladies and displayed how they’re able to feed off each other’s talents.
The same could be said for P!nk’s “Beautiful Trauma” performance, which looked more like a party on stage than anything else.
Dressed in a hot pink bubble jacket and a long checkered skirt, P!nk danced and moved with the exuberance of a new artist performing on television for the first time. It was really exciting to watch.
The Beautiful Trauma album, which is out now, is a 12-song offering that features Eminem on the song “Revenge.”
It’s possible that he and P!nk will perform the cut when she heads out on her Beautiful Trauma World Tour, which will stop at venues like the Spirit Center in Kansas City, T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Valley View Casino Center in San Diego and the Staples Center in L.A., all in May 2018. You can get tickets to all of those dates here and see P!nk’s “SNL” performance above and below.
