Pink had fans weeping at the 2017 American Music Awards when she and Kelly Clarkson opened the show with a tribute to first responders, but as the mother of two soon proved, she was just getting started. For the 鈥淲hat About Us鈥 singer鈥檚 second performance of the evening, she ditched the stage, performing a death-defying stunt that saw her hanging off the side of an *actual* hotel building!!

Performing her latest hit tune 鈥淏eautiful Trauma,鈥 the Grammy-winner, already well known for her acrobatic abilities (you may recall her breathtaking 2009 MTV VMAs performance of 鈥淪ober鈥 and 2012鈥檚 lip-riding take on 鈥淕et the Party Started鈥 and 鈥淏low Me (One Last Kiss鈥)) decided to take things up a notch by taking her stunts outdoors 鈥 of sorts 鈥 and scaling the side of the JW Marriott hotel in downtown LA.

Reportedly 34 stories up, the songstress had only the glass paneled windows to use for occasional balance and propulsion. Along with six additional aerialists, the 38-year-old flipped, twisted, spun, and generally flew through the air at unimaginable heights while singing her heart out in a glittery purple costume that put her at center 鈥渟tage.鈥

So crazed was the stunt, in fact, the seemingly dauntless performer admitted she was actually feeling jitters about the sitch, sharing a clip of herself on Instagram one day prior in which she confessed, 鈥淚鈥檓 just afraid I鈥檓 going to get up there and be like, 鈥業 don鈥檛 know if I can do this.鈥 I don鈥檛 care about heights, I just care about being able to actually breathe up there.鈥
