Pink[/caption]Capping off an incredible year, P!nk has been nominated for two Grammy Awards, including the Best Female Pop Vocal Performance category for her hit single “Sober” and in the Best Pop Vocal Album category for her multi-platinum selling album Funhouse. These two make a total of nine Grammy nominations for P!nk, who has won the coveted music award two times – for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals in 2001 for “Lady Marmalade,” performed with Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, and Mya, and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for “Trouble” from 2004’s Try This.

2009 has proved to be a whirlwind year for the international superstar, who’s nominated album Funhouse has now sold more than 5 million copies worldwide and boasts her first #1 Billboard single, “So What!” The album also inspired her wildly successful Funhouse Tour which took the world by storm this year, travelling across the globe and breaking touring records along the way. P!nk is now the most successful solo touring artist of all time in Australia, playing an unprecedented 60 sold out arena shows. Stateside, the US leg of the Funhouse Tour was P!nk’s first ever headlining arena tour in her home country. Kicking off in Seattle on September 15th, the tour packed arenas across the country and left fans and critics raving. The New York Times proclaimed, “Even in an era of escalating pop spectacle, Pink’s ‘Funhouse’ tour is going to be hard to top…Onstage she was a down-to-earth superwoman.” P!nk even previewed her Funhouse Tour with a fearless acrobatic performance at this year’s MTV VMA Awards.

P!nk’s dazzling live concert is captured in her recently released live DVD/album Funhouse Tour Live In Australia. The concert was filmed entirely in HD in Australia and features P!nk performing hits from the past decade as well as new favorites from Funhouse.

Since her debut in 2000, P!nk has been widely hailed as a fearlessly talented singer/songwriter. To date, the Pennsylvania native has sold 30 million albums cumulatively worldwide. Her previous albums include: her four million-unit selling debut, Can’t Take Me Home (2000); her sophomore follow-up, M!ssundaztood (2001) which sold 11 million worldwide; the 2.7 million worldwide seller Try This (2003), and I’m Not Dead (2006), which sold over 5 million units globally and spawned two No. 1 hits ”Who Knew” and “U + Ur Hand.”

Praise for P!nk:

“Pink can out-sing almost anyone out there. She can out-crazy Gaga or Lily. She’s the total pop-star package, everything you’d want in a singer/entertainer/icon” – MTV.COM

“One of the best rock shows of the year.” – New York Post

“Pink even pulled off an impressive version of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’…Like everything in Friday’s concert- like everything in Pink’s career- the song was a gamble, but one that the singer made look like a piece of cake.” – Los Angeles Times

“Pink’s true gift is as a musical androgynist — blurring the line between rocker and pop star, or between mourner and celebrant.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Pop music’s edgiest star” -Rolling Stone

“During a two-hour, turbo-charged performance at Key Arena, the platinum-blonde powerhouse overshadowed trapeze dancers, huge inflatable harlequins, Broadway-worthy choreography, and a pillow fight (!), wowing the packed crowd with her charisma, athleticism, and — most disarming of all — sense of humor.” – SPIN

PINK – Sober Live in Australia:

  • Sheila

    Pink was the best performance by far … a standing ovation was duly recognized …. she was by far the most talented and gifted.
    Beyonce, to my husband and I, is rewound too many times, and is getting old … in fact,my husband was disgraced by her holding her crotch and she has lost her once graceful ladiness; she is now J-Z bototom and its time for something and someone new. When are we going to stop overdoing everything and award the hard new stars of tomorrow? – like Pink (i.e., did you see anyone do a standing ovation for overdone Beyonce and some of the others). The Grammys now seemes “fixed” just like the disappoining “American Idol” and the phony Guardo, or whatever her name is (so impressive .. uuugh!)
