11 Times P!nk Took Flight In The Middle Of A Performance

Pink has a tendency to fly during her performances. And sing while doing it.

While P!nk has been delivering hits since 2000, she’s been doing something the past five years that’s particularly amazing: Taking flight during her performances! If you’ve watched a recent televised P!nk performance, nines times out of 10 she’s suspended in the air. Whether held up by a harness, acrobatic sheets or a giant revolving ball (yup), P!nk is soaring like a G6 and cementing her place as pop music’s most daring performer. Seriously, how can she be upside down, contort herself into crazy positions and manage to sound pitch perfect?

In honor of her 35th birthday, we’ve picked 10 of P!nk’s most sky-high performances and assembled them here for your viewing pleasure. Take a gander, but try not to get vertigo. (Warning: It’s hard.)
