Live Performance Spotlight: Pink “Glitter in The Air” 2010 Grammys
Welcome to a new category I’ve created called LPMV Spotlights! This category will highlight live performances and music videos from the past and present in various music genres. For this category’s first post, I’m spotlighting Pink’s performance of “Glitter in the Air” from the 2010 Grammy awards.
Before I go any further, I want to ask that those who have already seen this performance to not spoil what happens in the comments. This also applies to people viewing the performance for the first time. I want everyone who hasn’t seen this performance to be just as surprised and awed as the people in the audience were.
As a huge Pink fan, this is my favorite performance of hers. She proves she has talent and artistry by doing something beautiful and moving. Not to mention, she puts certain singers to shame by singing live while doing what she does in this performance.
For skeptics, here are a couple of facts that prove Pink is singing live (as she always does). When she sings the lyrics, “Have you ever fed a lover with just your hand?” at the start of the performance, she smiles. You can hear that smile in her voice at the word “hand.” Another thing is that unlike in the studio version, the acoustic guitar is more prominent in this performance. The guitar notes you hear while no one is singing for a few moments are not on the studio version.
