Pink performs during her "Beautiful Trauma" world tour opener at Talking Stick Resort Arena on March 1, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona.

"Who Knew" the lyrics?

Even with 3 Grammys, 7 studio albums and more than two decades in the game, P!nk is still susceptible to minor slip-ups during live performances. Case in point: the singer was unable to recall the lyrics to the second verse of her 2006 single "Who Knew" during a show at New York City's Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night (Apr. 4).

"I forgot the words. Shit!" P!nk said, laughing off her mistake. She proved that she's still a rock star, though, recovering just in time for the chorus.

Although P!nk's memory might've been hazy, she was still able to perform her iconic aerial dance moves as she swung high over the crowd in a glimmering bodysuit. Thankfully, she has two consecutive nights booked at The Garden, which will give her a chance to redeem herself.

"I feel like Billy Joel right now," P!nk told the sold-out crowd. "Two nights at The Garden?!"
