Congratulations, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa!

Pink’s got another new song, and this time she’s bringing along none other than the Channing Tatum to dance with her.

Wonder Great

Before I go do my Justice League review, here’s a reminder of the DCEU’s most recent mega-hit from earlier this year. Because she, of course, continued to rock in JL.

Well, we know what happened in Jurassic Park.
