Pop star and singer, Pink, is dealing with a case of the flu ahead of her scheduled National Anthem performance ahead of the Super Bowl on Sunday. Pink revealed on her Instagram account that she was practicing with a case of the flu during her rehearsal session, which you can check out and read below.

TMZ reports that Pink had difficulty making it through her rehearsal for the show last Thursday (Feb. 1) due to her illness. Additionally, she made it through her pre-Super Bowl concert on Friday (Feb. 2) at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota, but she apparently had to rely on backup singers and the audience to help her through the show.

The report also said that Pink ended up having to cut off her song “Beautiful Trauma” shortly after it started, telling the audience, “I can’t do it. I hate this … I can’t do that song. I’m sorry.”

“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. I will tell you, this is one of the biggest honors of my life, singing this song in front of my family, my military family, my dad and brother and step mama and family and the world. And the EAGLES!?!?! I promise I will do my best, as I always do. As far as the gremlins that got me into this mess, you can cough at me for the rest of your lives. If it’s a contest, babies, you win. #spreadthelove #spreadthegerms #pleasegivememyvoiceback #ificansingimgonnakillit”
