Keith Urban is a notoriously fantastic live performer, having previously performed at awards shows for both pop and country music, and tonight was no exception.
The country crooner performed Long Hot Summer from his most recent album to an energetic and fan-filled audience at the Billboard Music Awards 2011 in Las Vegas, Sunday night. The crowd wasn’t the only one in the room filled with energy; Keith Urban himself was sweaty and breathless, yet still managed to pull out his trademark rugged vocal prowess! As he closed out the song with the final chords, he appeared radiant, as did Kidman who stood and cheered him on from out in the audience.
Urban, who released his eighth studio album entitled Get Closer last year, has more than his share of reasons to celebrate. Aside from having made a successful recovery from struggles with both drugs and alcohol, he’s husband to fellow Aussie Nicole Kidman, and the pair have gorgeous baby girl, Sunday Rose.
