Pink nails the national anthem at the Super Bowl all while battling the flu!
Whether you are celebrating the win of the Philadelphia Eagles or mourning the loss of the New England Patriots, there is one thing we can all agree on, and that is Pinks’ performance of the US National Anthem.
Regardless of whether you watched this year's Super Bowl or not, you’re bound to hear about it! Pink took to the U.S Bank Stadium field in Minneapolis and gave a pitch-perfect rendition of one of the most difficult to sing songs, all while being sick. That’s right! Pink was able to belt out the highest of high notes during her performance despite being sick.
The 38-year-old singer announced days prior to the Super Bowl that she had come down with a nasty cold, which was unfortunately given to her by her two children. The singer mentioned that the chance of a lifetime came along when “I have two small Petri dish kids who literally cough into my mouth and rub their snot on my cheek,” its no surprise she managed to get sick.
According to the DailyMail, Pink has been waiting for this day since 1991 after watching her idol Whitney Houston perform her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner and we’re thrilled Pink finally got the opportunity to fulfil a dream of hers. Although every word Pink sang sounded incredible, it wasn’t the notes viewers were focusing on but something else that Pink spat out moments before her performance.
Social media went into a frenzy after witnessing Pink spit out what was mistaken as gum seconds before the music started. What we now know to be a throat lozenge, considering she was indeed sick, Twitter users couldn’t help but comment on the hilarity of the singer spitting out a lozenge on camera!
One Tweet, in particular, wrote: “Pink spitting out her gum on the field is the best thing that has happened to me in 2018 so far”. Who knew that it would only take a lozenge to send Twitter into havoc. We’re sending out major kudos to superstar Pink for not only tackling the anthem but doing all while the flu tackled her.
