P!nk kicked off the 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards with an epic performance!

The 2023 iHeartRadio Icon Award recipient launched the coveted awards show with a performance of “TRUSTFALL” on Monday evening (Mar. 27).

Surrounded by dozens of dancers on a massive contraption, P!nk made her way around the large structure that will be used as part of her 2023 tour production.

“Are we runnin’ out of time? / Are we hidin’ from the light? / Are we just too scared to fight / For what we want tonight? / Close your eyes and leave it all behind / Go where love is on our side / It’s a trust fall, baby / It’s a trust fall, baby,” P!nk sings on the chorus of the tune.

Ahead of her show-stopping performance, the 43-year-old hitmaker talked about her set.

“I’m kind of taking over the show, which is amazing,” P!nk shared. “We are opening the show and I have four new characters on stage with me that will be going on tour with me. So, I have to thank iHeart for letting me workshop this stunt because it is my set piece and this is the first time we’re using it.”

“I am the only one there this time that’s safe,” P!nk said, referencing the fact that she is typically the person doing dangerous stunts during her performances. “It’s usually the opposite. I have some special guests joining me that I love, that I revere and it’s just sort of a female takeover. It’s a celebration.”

The tune serves as the title track to P!nk’s ninth studio album, TRUSTFALL, which arrived on Friday (Feb. 17).

“I can’t believe this day is finally here!!” Pink wrote on social media. “I have been waiting almost patiently to share my heart and soul with all of you. This album means so much to me, it’s silly sauce. I hope this becomes the ‘I remember where I was when I listened to that album’ for you.”

The project features 13 tracks, including her current single “Never Gonna Not Dance Again.” In addition to her collaboration with Stapleton, the project also includes duets with alternative rock/folk band The Lumineers and Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit.

P!nk’s new album serves as the follow-up to her first live collection, All I Know So Far: Setlist, as well as her 2019 project, Hurts 2B Human, which included fan-favorite hits such as “Walk Me Home,” “Can We Pretend,” “Hustle,” “Love Me Anyway,” and more.

P!NK will soon take her new album on the road as she recently announced that she will be embarking on a massive 2023 Stadium Tour, dubbed the Summer Carnival Tour. The Summer Carnival Tour kicks off on July 24 in Toronto, Ontario at Rogers Centre and continues through October 9, where the tour will wrap up in Phoenix, Arizona at Chase Field.

Produced by Live Nation, the 21-city tour will visit Boston’s Fenway Park, NYC’s Citi Field, Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium and more before wrapping up in Phoenix’s Chase Field on October 9, 2023.
