Pink has powered through the pre-Super Bowl concert despite battling though the flu.

Who’s telling the girl to ‘step up’ now, hey?

The pop star brought her signature anthem So What to The Armory in Minneapolis and although relying on her backing singers for support, made it through without a glitch.

Before starting her set, the 38-year-old warned the crowd that she wasn’t on her best form.

She said: ‘I’m not going to sound like crap all night because you guys are going to help me.

‘We’re going to rock the fuck out and have a good time.’

She then blasted out fan favourites such as Get the Party Started and Raise Your Glass, before bringing the notch down with Who Knew.

The mother-of-two will attend the Super Bowl on Sunday and will sing The Star-Spangled Banner at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Whilst on stage she gave a shout out to the City of Brotherly Love, the place where the star grew up.

During her cover of Four Non Blondes What’s Up she shouted: ‘We’re gonna wake up the entire neighborhood’ before powering up her vocals and smashing out the song in true Pink fashion.

Pink later took to Instagram to reveal that she sung despite suffering with the flu, saying that her dream was turning into a nightmare.

The caption read: ‘[I’m] trying to practice the flu away. I’ve been waiting to sing this song since 1991 when I saw my idol, Whitney Houston, own this song. And now, my chance has finally come.

‘And it just so happens that this chance comes when I have two small Petri dish kids who literally cough INTO MY MOUTH and rub their snot on my cheek.

‘You can’t write this stuff I swear! And here we are. I’ve arrived at another one of my dreams which is slowly becoming a sort of nightmare.’

She will follow the footsteps of Beyonce, Diana Ross, Lady Gaga, Neil Diamond, Luther Vandross, Mariah Carey, and Cher by singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday.
