Pink Sings National Anthem: Grade It!
Super Bowl 52 pitted the New England Patriots against the Philadelphia Eagles.
But music fans went into Sunday night less focused on the battle on the field and more focused on the battle within Pink's immune system.
That's because the beloved singer fell ill the week prior to the biggest performance of her life, taking to midfield prior to the big game in order to belt out the Star-Spangled Banner.
It was unclear at times whether Pink would even be able to go through with the performance.
But go through with it she did, alright!
The Grammy-winner didn't ascend into the air, as she so often does while singing a song in front of a major audience.
Instead, she donned star-shaped earrings, a silver outfit and did the country's theme song proud.
Odds in Las Vegas set the over/under on the time of Pink's rendition at two minutes, with many assuming she would be unable to last that long due to the aforementioned sickness.
"Ummm. I’m singing the national anthem and the EAGLES ARE PLAYING?!?!?! IS THIS FOR REAL?!?!?!THATS WHASSUP!!!!!!!!" Tweeted the Philadelphia fan prior to the game, hilariously adding:
"Shtjtkd widnamc ckamcnsnzncbx!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wooohooooooooooooioooooooooooooooooooooooooiiiiiiooooooooooo."
So… how did she do?
