Within the comment section, Selma Blair, a close family friend, expressed her own profound astonishment and admiration for the breathtaking performance. "I'm so overwhelmed with love and pride for this gorgeous Willow and her beautiful superstar parents, well done. And what an incredible night it looks and sounds," she wrote. Other fans were quick to praise the young singer. "She was AMAZING! I cried a little. Every right to be a proud papa," one person wrote, while another chimed in with, "I was there and it was awesome. Mama Pink was emotional." Another follower commented, "My phone is emitting onion scents and now my eyes are watery." Many were astonished by the 12-year-old's strong singing voice. One admirer said, "Wow she's amazing!" while another noted, "You can just see how proud she is!! She nailed it too!"
According to The Today Show, P!nk disclosed that her daughter Willow would be taking up a minimum-wage job during her mother's summer tour. Alongside Willow, P!nk's six-year-old son, Jameson, will also be accompanying her on tour for the promotion of her ninth studio album, "Trustfall." "Willow has a job on tour. We just had to go over minimum wage and it's different state-to-state."
P!nk playfully mentioned that there is still room for improvement in teaching Willow the art of negotiation. "I said it's about $22.50 a show depending on how long I go, if I run over. She [Willow] goes, 'I'll take $20, it's easier to do the math.' I'm like, 'That's not how you negotiate for yourself.' I'm like, 'You’ll take $25 so it's easier math.'"
