Pink performed the anthem despite battling the flu in the week leading up to the Super Bowl.
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
She’s won three Grammy Awards and has been nominated 19 times over the course of her career — which is pretty good! She was nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance during last Sunday’s Grammy Awards. Her latest endeavors include her 2018 Beautiful Trauma world tour, which is set to kick off on March 1 in Phoenix.
Ahead of her anthem, per usual, people were betting on her singing it for over two minutes, -150, and under two minutes, +110. You could even bet on her hair color, or if she’d be airborne!
