Pink’s Grammy Performance Ditched Sky-High Acrobatics for Raw Vocals

Grammy winner Pink always delivers two things: vocals and acrobatics. But, on Sunday night’s Grammys, one of those things was conspicuously absent. The singer sang “Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken,” from her latest album Beautiful Trauma – with her feet on the ground.

A lot of people noticed.

Many people appreciated Pink’s performance, which was about raw talent and not theatrics.

When Pink took home the Video Vanguard Award at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, she made another moment without being in the sky. Her speech was a much-beloved eff you to gender norms.
