Taylor Swift has been attracting many celebrities to her three in a row in each city “Eras Tour” Stadium shows. In Nashville, Reese Witherspoon and SVU actress Mariska Hargitay were in the crowd. They both went backstage to greet Taylor after the show.
In her recent Philly concerts, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman were in the crowd to cheer Swift on. They had some fun with Swifties in the crowd. Nicole posted a video clip on her Insta stories of her and Keith rocking out to the show. She wrote over the clip, “Amazing night! Keep shining bright! We Love you, @taylorswift.” Then she posted a photo of her and Urban’s arms covered in friendship bracelets.
Nicole wrote over the image, “Thank you to all the Swifties.” Keith also posted the photo of the friendship bracelets on his Insta stories. “Thank you to all the Swifties who showered is withSOOOOO many friendship bracelets in Philly.”
Urban and Swift recorded a duet in 2021 called “That’s When.” The song is the 24th track on Taylor’s first re-recorded album, Fearless (Taylor’s Version) (2021), a re-recording of her 2008 album Fearless. It is one of six “from the Vault” tracks written for the original album but scrapped.
Keith told Ellen Degeneres when the song was released where he first listened to the demo Taylor sent him. He shared, “It’s the craziest story. We were in Australia; I was doing some Christmas shopping at the shopping mall in December — because everybody does their shopping right before Christmas, every guy does.”
He continued, “I got a text from Taylor saying, ‘I’ve got these couple of songs I’d like you to sing on. Do you wanna hear them?’ I said sure, so she sends me the songs, and I’m sitting in the food court at the shopping center listening to these two unreleased Taylor Swift songs [with headphones].”
Meanwhile, Urban is returning to American Idol for the first time since he left the show six years ago. On the finale, which airs this Sunday (5/21), Keith will become one of the select few artists to mentor the Top 3 contestants as they each select and perform one of his best-known hits.
Urban will also be performing on the three-hour season finale, during which one contestant will be crowned the next American Idol.
Keith was a judge on the show for four years, during seasons 12-15.
