"The flu lost today."

Posted on

So, Pink performed the National Anthem at Super Bowl 52. She also happened to have the flu.

She shared a pic from rehearsal on Instagram, writing, "Trying to practice the flu away... this chance comes when I have two small Petri dish kids who literally cough INTO MY MOUTH and rub their snot on my cheek."

She added:

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.

Well, whatever medicine she took must've been made of magic because Pink went onto the field and TOTALLY. DOMINATED.

INCREDIBLE. @Pink sings the National Anthem at @SuperBowl LII! #SBLII

See for yourself.

Now, IDK about you, but I'm a snotty, grumpy, feverish mess when I'm sick and can't even get out of bed, let alone hold a tune. So, I found Pink's performance extremely impressive and people definitely agree.

Pink with the flu: [performs National Anthem beautifully] Me with the flu:

Pink has the flu and still sang the National Anthem flawlessly in front of 113 million people. When I get the flu,…


Pink singing that well with the flu is goals and shout out to my friend @leslieodomjr for a stunning performance. Bravo to both!

May we all look one quarter as good as Pink looks sick when we are healthy. #mywishforyou


Listen @Pink is a QUEEN! Anyone who can sing the national anthem while having the flu with such grace is a legend in my book. Slaya

Reminder that @Pink has the flu and she just did THAT. #SuperBowl


Man. @Pink If I could come even close to singing the anthem that well on the HEALTHIEST day of my life, I’d retire…

Ummmm if Pink had the Flu..... The Flu lost today. She nailed the National Anthem #Wpxi

Killed it.

Pink sounds better singing with the flu than most humans do at 100% health #SuperBowl

Basically, Ellen summed it up perfectly.

As always, amazing job, Pink!
