It’s been more than a decade since P!nk last appeared on SNL, performing “Get The Party Started” and “Don’t Let Me Get Me.” The singer makes her triumphant return for the show’s 43rd season as musical guest accompanying host Kumail Nanjiani.
Here are five things we want to see during her SNL performance.
In recent years, P!nk has incorporated incredible acrobatics to her performances — to the point where it doesn’t feel like a P!nk performance if it doesn’t incorporate some sort of trapeze stunt. It may be a bit unrealistic to expect the singer to do this on SNL’s tiny stage, but P!nk would (literally) take the show to new heights flying over the studio 8H crowd.
An appearance by her adorable daughter Willow Sage Hart
P!nk’s five-year-old daughter Willow made an appearance at the VMAs, accompanying P!nk and dad Carey Hart in matching suits. After hearing P!nk’s inspirational speech prompted by her daughter’s comments on her appearance, we’ve love to see more of Willow. She joined her mom onstage in 2013 during a performance in Frankfurt, Germany, and it would be great to see them share this moment again four years later.
A duet with Eminem in “Revenge”
Eminem has received tons of attention lately for his anti Trump freestyle — gaining the support of many who have been negatively affected by his presidency — while P!nk has also been attracting attention with her new album Beautiful Trauma. This pair would be the dream team on SNL and make everyone want to sing along to this catchy collaboration.
Screen time with Kumail Nanjiani
P!nk and Nanjiani would be such an interesting pair to watch. Both are charismatic, hilarious, and entertaining, so what could be better than seeing them share the stage at one point of Saturday Oct. 14’s show?
New songs off Beautiful Trauma
“What About Us” has been the biggest hit off this album so far, making no. 1 in Australia and being included in P!nk’s VMAs performance. We’d love to see her perform it again, but there are some dynamic new tunes like “Barbies” and “Better Life” that are definitely SNL-worthy.
