Pink stunned fans recently with her musical indictment of domestic violence in her video for the song “Try.” Beautiful and shocking all at the same time, the video was a mini-ballet, with muscular Broadway dancer Colt Prattes serving as Pink’s sparring partner.
In an amazing American Music Awards performance, Pink served up a shot-for-shot reenactment of the “Try” video, leaving the audience stunned. It’s rare to see a music video, particularly one that is so physically demanding, performed live, but the seasoned performer known for her aerial acrobatics did just that.
Fans quickly took to Twitter to praise Pink for her amazing performance.
