At the 2017 Video Music Awards, Pink accepted this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award — and paired the special presentation with one of her most eye-popping VMAs performances to date, a career-spanning medley that sprawled across the VMAs stage.
Pink kicked off the performance by harkening back to her devil-may-care pop beginnings, playing "Get The Party Started" and "Raise Your Glass" before riding a lawnmower across the stage during "So What." The medley then took a somber turn, as the pop star appeared to be giving her younger self sage advice for "F--king Perfect" before snaking in the melody of her No. 1 single "Just Give Me a Reason." Finally, new single "What About Us" was given a moving showcase, as Pink showed lock-step choreography before clasping hands with her dancers and raising her fists to the rafters.
