Posting a pic of herself rehearsing ahead of her 6:30 p.m. ET performance, the indefatigable pop queen wrote, "Trying to practice the flu away. I've been waiting to sing this song since 1991 when I saw my idol, Whitney Houston, own this song. And now, my chance has finally come."

Joking about her "petri dish" kids, P!nk pointed out that they "literally cough INTO MY MOUTH and rub their snot on my cheek." Just so nobody would think P!nk was taking her "gremlins" for granted, she ended her note by telling them "you can cough at me for the rest of your lives. if it's a contest, babies, you win."

P!nk's hashtags included #pleasegivememyvoiceback and #ificansingimgonnakillit.

Trying to practice the flu away. I’ve been waiting to sing this song since 1991 when I saw my idol, Whitney Houston, own this song. And now, my chance has finally come. And it just so happens that this chance comes when I have two small Petri dish kids who literally cough INTO MY MOUTH and rub their snot on my cheek. You can’t write this stuff I swear! And here we are. I’ve arrived at another one of my dreams which is slowly becoming a sort of nightmare. I will tell you, this is one of the biggest honors of my life, singing this song in front of my family, my military family, my dad and brother and step mama and family and the world. And the EAGLES!?!?! I promise I will do my best, as I always do. As far as the gremlins that got me into this mess, you can cough at me for the rest of your lives. If it’s a contest, babies, you win. #spreadthelove #spreadthegerms #pleasegivememyvoiceback #ificansingimgonnakillit
