Keith Urban Gets Help From Julia Michaels for 2018 ACM Awards Performance
Keith Urban shared the stage with pop star Julia Michaels for a performance of "Coming Home" at Sunday night's (April 15) 2018 ACM Awards ceremony. The collaboration is one of several on his upcoming album Graffiti U.
He sang in front of a backdrop that felt like a live lyric video with the song's words appearing on the screen. The set was minimalist, with Urban standing alone onstage with his guitar. Michaels joined him later in the song, and both of them were sporting matching bright red outfits. On the very last line of the song, Urban leaned over and sang into Michaels' mic before raising his fist in the air.
Speaking of collaborations: Urban's hit duet "The Fighter," which features Carrie Underwood, was one of the songs nominated for Vocal Event of the Year at the 2018 ACMs. Urban was also nominated in multiple other categories at the 2018 ACM Awards: He earned nods for Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year, and his song "Female" received a nomination for Song of the Year.
Graffiti U is set for release on April 27. After that, Urban has plans to launch a tour with special guest Kelsea Ballerini starting in June to support the album.
