It's Super Bowl Sunday and for many it's all about the performances on the night. 

Pink is set to sing the National Anthem but she's revealed that she's battling an illness. 

She took to Instagram to reveal she has the flu thanks to her kids. 

 

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

Meanwhile, Janet Jackson has also come out saying she definitely won't be performing with Justin Timberlake during the half-time show.

When they appeared at the event together 14 years ago, he inadvertently ripped away part of her costume, leading to a wardrobe malfunction.
