Pink turned it up a notch for her Grammy Awards performance.
The singer showed off her power and flexibility in an acrobatic, Cirque du Soleil-inspired routine for the performance of her ballad, “Try,” with audience members spinning her around at two points during the song — a stunt she did just several years ago on the same Grammy stage.
But she wasn’t finished. When she made it onto the stage, Pink — nominated for two Grammys — showed off several more yoga moves with a male dancer as they re-enacted a fight before her second song.
A mustached Nate Ruess, singer from fun., then joined Pink — after a quick change into a full-length black skirt — onstage for another mid-tempo ballad: their radio anthem, “Just Give Me a Reason.”
The Staples Center audience gave a rousing standing ovation following the performance, though how much of it was for Pink’s acrobatic prowess?
It wasn’t the first time Pink has performed a Cirque-like routine at the Grammys. In 2010, Pink — then in a flesh-colored suit with white piping — impressed the Grammy audience with a high-flying rendition of “Glitter in the Air.”
