As the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic and with millions of people across the globe going into self-isolation, there’s no denying these are unprecedented and stressful times.

But today, homegrown heroes Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are bringing us a super-sized serving of hope, in the form of Keith’s uplifting country music and Nicole’s fabulous dance moves.

On Tuesday March 17th, Keith and Nicole delighted fans by streaming a surprise gig showcasing some of Keith’s classic tracks.

The country music star decided to live stream an impromptu show from his warehouse after he was forced to cancel his performance at the Houston Rodeo due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

At the start of the live stream, Nicole can be heard telling her husband that the camera was rolling, “You’re up baby!”, before Keith takes to the mic to explain to fans why he was jumping online.

“Hi everyone, we’re coming to you live from our warehouse, actually. This is where we store all of our gear,” the 52-year-old said.

“We thought we’d set this up, mostly because I was supposed to be playing tonight. I just thought it would be nice to play anyway. Even though we can’t be in front of all your guys tonight, I want to play some songs and bring a little bit of entertainment into your screens. Thank you so much for jumping in here and joining tonight. I have limited people in here of course,” Keith said.

The singer then went on to introduce his wife, sweetly referring to her by her middle name.

“I have Nicole Mary, hi baby girl. [She’s my] audience of one! There’s four of us here in our little bunker. It’s super low, chill. If you want to sing-a-long at home, sing,” Keith instructed, as he went on to belt out his back catalogue of songs.

During the performance, Big Little Lies star Nicole could be seen singing along in the background and busting out an impressive repertoire of dance moves.

Fans were quick to praise Keith and Nicole for offering a much needed distraction during these uncertain times.

“Thanks so much Keith! We needed this in this time of the unknown! Please do it again! We needed to hear your voice and see you shred the guitar! Loved watching Nicole dance too,” one user wrote.

“That was amazing! Thanks for taking my worries away for a while! It was just what I needed,” another agreed.

“Incredible Nic… You turned mt quarantine into a party,” a third noted.

Suffice to say, we reckon Nicole and Keith should make this a regular thing and consider more husband and wife duets.

While travel restrictions around the world continue to change on a daily basis, according to The Daily Telegraph, Keith and Nicole are planning to relocate their family back to Australia so they can be closer to Nicole’s 80-year-old mother, Janelle.

The publication claims the couple, who are currently based in Nashville, have already enrolled their two daughters Sunday Rose, 11, and Faith Margaret, nine, into a prestigious girls school in the Southern Highlands of NSW.
