Lena Hall: "Misery." P!nk and Steven Tyler!!!
Lesli Margherita: "Stupid Girls." Outcasts and girls with ambition — that's what I wanna see.
Corey Mach: This tour video of "Sober" is P!NK to a T for me. Flying around an arena on a trapeze and rope swings while belting her F'ing face off. So unbelievably theatrical and thrilling.
Kyle Post: "So What." When I saw her "Truth About Love" tour last year and she flew around the Barclays à la Spider Man Turn Off The Dark, while singing LIVE in a unitard and six-inch heels, she made it next to impossible for anyone to top her in my book.
Christine Dwyer: P!nk singing "Dear Mr. President" — love and acoustic!! One of my absolute favorite songs of hers, and I just loved how raspy and rock 'n' roll she sounds here.
Kate Shindle: "Glitter In the Air." This Grammy performance is EVERYTHING. She really did that.
Gabrielle Reid: "Try" from AMAs 2012 proved she is the queen of BADASSARY.
Gisela Adisa: My fave P!nk video is most definitely the one she and her family did for "True Love" — it's so cool that she shared this vignette of her life — her old man, the little nugget and the circus life that comes with being a rock star. And, the clips where she and her hubby are lobbing fistfuls of rose petals at each other cracks me up.
Anita Welch: "F**Kin' Perfect" is my favorite. I love this song!!!! I love the lyrics; this song makes me feel good!
Mike Schwitter: P!nk's "So What" at the 2008 MTV Awards. I try to wake up each morning with the same attitude. (Including pushing the guy down the subway stairs. Rush hour, AMIRIGHT?)
Jessica Hendy: I'm gonna have to go with P!nk singing "Lady Marmalade." Such a fun version of the song and a great way to ask someone to sleep with you! Hahaha!!! Plus her top hat and glitter bra ROCK!
