Pop star drops a silky white robe to reveal a sheer bodysuit before getting acrobatic.

At the MTV Video Music Awards last fall, Pink stuck a sparkly heart to her bosom and soared through the air like an acrobat as she busted out a rendition of "Sober." At the Grammys on Sunday night (January 31), the pop star stayed closer to the ground — at least in the beginning — but delivered no less of a memorable performance.
Sauntering slowly onstage through a haze of electric-blue screens, Pink wore a silky white robe that covered her head to toe, save for a plunging neckline that revealed a lot of skin. Singing "Glitter in the Air" from her Funhouse album, she made her way down the stage stairs and into the aisle.
Once there, Pink dropped the robe to reveal a sort-of sheer bodysuit that was essentially just a series of white straps covering strategic areas while leaving almost nothing to the imagination. As she had at the VMAs, Pink brought her circus act to the Grammys. With dancers twisting above her, Pink climbed into a white sheet and was lifted into the air. High above the stage, she spun in circles and continued to sing.
As the song built up, water began to pour from above, soaking Pink as she kept twirling and held herself in place with nothing but a well-flexed leg. The song wrapped up with Pink spinning upside down and spraying water in all directions.
The audience at the Staples Center greeted her with a standing ovation. Pink then hustled offstage, perhaps to dry off. The singer still had a long night ahead of her. She's still in consideration for one of her two Grammys nominations — Best Female Pop Vocal Performance — against Beyoncé and Katy Perry.
