Keith Urban Trades Carrie for Nicole in ‘The Fighter’ Lip Sync Video
Keith Urban lip syncing Keith Urban is pretty cool, but when he invites wife Nicole Kidman in to sing Carrie Underwood’s parts on "The Fighter," it quite possible becomes the coolest thing he’s ever done.
Urban and Kidman are sitting in an SUV when the duet from the country star's new Ripcord album begins to play. “Oh my God, I love this song,” the actress says when disco-infused guitar riff that opens "The Fighter" starts to fill the air around them. For the next two minutes, she’s an animated version of Urban’s original duet partner. Watch as she bites her nails as she lip syncs "And if I get scared?"
Of course, the couple can’t get through the performance without cracking each other up. Urban manages to mostly keep a straight face through the song, while his wife of 10 years breaks character on multiple occasions. It makes the video all the more adorable — can we talk about their embrace at the very end?!
"The Fighter" is one of two major collaborations on Ripcord. Urban said he needed to rent a studio in St. Louis and FaceTime with Underwood, as she cut her vocals with producer busbee. “I actually think vocal gift … she’s got so much more to go,” he says of his fellow country star. "She’s just really starting to discover what she can do as a singer."
