Pink Tops Herself Yet Again With Extraordinary AMAs Performance Of “Try”

"Try," for those not familiar, debuted in October and details through elaborate, remarkably emotional--and intensely physical--choreography the struggles of a relationship that's gone awry. The end result proved difficult for many to watch, even some of Pink's own family: "Wow, honey. I'm speechless. And uncomfortable. No one can ever say you play it safe," Pink quoted her own mother as saying.
At the AMAs, Pink and her male counterpart dancer, Colt Prattes, did a remarkable job of re-creating the entire scenario, which the star has noted is her "favorite video ever." The performance--which likely took numerous takes during the making of the video to accomplish--was completed flawlessly on stage. Pink performs a remarkable upside-down balancing act on Prattes's shoulders, as well as completes a round of intensely athletic "fighting sequence" movements, all without barely smudging her rainbow-colored makeup.  The dance progresses to a climactic moment where the pair throw each other into furniture while flames flicker in the background...only to rise up and, presumably, try again
Amazing.
