She's waited her whole life for this opportunity, so naturally, Pink got the flu right before the Super Bowl. Murphy's Law much?

The 38-year-old singer is supposed sing “The Star Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl LII on Sunday, but she took to Instagram this morning to announce she has the flu thanks to her kids.

"Trying to practice the flu away," she wrote in the lengthy caption. "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!"

The "What About Us" singer went on to say that her dream is "slowly becoming a nightmare," but she's determined to perform if she has her voice.

"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."

It seems as though she's doing OK so far, as the songstress performed a pre-Super Bowl concert in Minnesota last night, and she killed it!

Fingers crossed that she's well enough to perform at the big game!
