When your husband is one of the biggest music stars on the planet and he’s tied up in concert on New Year’s Eve what is a girl to do? Join him on stage of course!
Nicole Kidman surprised fans and her husband when she got up on stage and performed back-up while he belted out tribute pieces during a New Year’s Eve performance in Nashville.
Kidman looked cute as a button swaying her hips as Urban performed songs in tribute to those music stars who had passed away during 2016, including David Bowie, Prince, Merle Haggard and Leonard Cohen. Her impromptu performance sent social media into a spin, with many offering words of praise for the actress.

However, there were some who thought that perhaps Our Nic had had a few too many drinks and was maybe a little tipsy on the stage.
“Nicole Kidman was very drunk and happy dancing on stage while Keith Urban performed,” Twitter user Christine Nunez wrote.
While Jeremy G tweeted: “Nicole Kidman is straight drunk cougar dancing on CNN” seemingly referring to Kidman’s 49 years.
Urban was performing as part of CNN’s multi-timezone celebrations and performed a medley of tunes in his tribute, including Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, The Eagles ‘Take It Easy’ in memory of Glenn Frey, and Bowie’s ‘Heroes’, Haggard’s ‘Mama Tried’ and finally Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’.
Kidman joined in the singing and at the end of the performance gave her hubby a big ol’ smooch.
