Pink was certainly a strong lead in to the biggest football game of the year.
Last night, Pink was the opening act for Super Bowl LII, singing the National Anthem. Not only did she nail it, but she nailed it with the flu! Apparently, her kiddos are the culprits. Pink mentioned on Instagram that her kids “literally cough INTO MY MOUTH and rub their snot on my cheek.”
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
Not that you need any proof that Pink was in fact sick, but the camera did catch her spitting out her cough drop just before the music started. Now, there was one note she had a little trouble with, but like a true professional, she saw it coming and backed off the mic. Honestly, though, that’s such a minor moment.
Ultimately, she rocked it!
