We Just Like Your Company, Too...

If you are expecting a “Keith, you are a loser” blog you aren't going to get one here today. He did good singing a song he never performed in public before with the lovely Sarah Buxton grabbing on to him from time to time in the song. Are you drawing a blank here? We are talking about the ACM Awards last night. Keith had to follow Garth Brooks, not an easy thing to do, and he was stuck in the middle of the crowd to perform a song that if you build your courage and listen to Love Is Painful and the Rest of the Crap CD, you can hear he had real trouble in the recording of the high notes. Last night the man carried it off and while he was wearing the stage uniform it was a hell of a lot better looking than the Tom Ford suit he was forced to wear on the carpet and in the audience. I bet Ford would have slapped him silly to see that he took off the jacket at one point and rolled up his sleeves much to the chagrin of the little missus. Keith Urban could dress himself pretty well for the first 38 years of his life. I wish the wife would have let him do it last night. Instead we got a sexless Tom Wolfe wanna be.

The main focus of the blog today is Kidman. Her trying to either rub her crotch or pimp the bump was quite unsuccessful. The dress was alright, she might have been looking at Angelina from Cannes earlier in the week to get her inspiration, but the bland color matched her coloring. I love, love, love that she had her press wonks write that she stole the show from the other artists. No way, no how. Nobody paid any attention to her. It was rather funny to watch. No one kissed her ass but Keith, but he is paid to do that. There was no love between her and rare seat mate Carrie Underwood. When Carrie won her award she turned her back to Keith and Kidman and stepped up those stairs to thank God. Kidman at various times during the telecast looked like she did backstage in Australia, bored, tired and clearly out of it. Perhaps she got tired earlier in the day in Santa Monica when she spent the day in a spinning class? Or was it the flight to Vegas to join Keith just in time to go to the red carpet? For you see, Mr. Urban had the weekend off to enjoy Vegas and all it offers. And the stories are out there that in the past Mr. Urban knew exactly how to enjoy Vegas. So the awards weren’t about Keith at all; it was a fly in photo op to promote the family Urban and the royal birth. And damn it, Nicole had to sit through that dreadful music, too!

Hey, anyone who watched the show in its entirety sat through the same dreadful, out of tune music. I will say Poor NK though, I at least got to see probably the best performance of the night - her husbands - whilst she was on the bus.

I must admit, I completely forgot the awards were on so I'm basing my opinions on reviews and pictures. I liked Nicole's dress but wish it would have been long. I heard tell that the baby was kicking all night long, thus the reason for her holding onto the belly. Didn't much care for the suit Keith had on, liked the one he wore at the CMT awards better.

His performance was stellar, one of the best of the night, along with Miranda Lambert. That girl can perform!!

what do you know? i agree!

i don't care how much the baby is kicking, you don't hold your crotch all night long. and it looks like she is carrying that baby VERY LOW....must be cause she's about 7 feet tall.

Keith looked terrible in Tommy's suit. NK's dress was lovely...the crotch holding detracted from it, however. Sorry...all the "my child inside was kicking" crap doesn't justify her constant crotch grabbing. It was simply to make sure we all realize that she has a big belly ... with a child inside ... that she is bringing to life, as in a God who is also the Queen of Australia.

Keith's performance was the best of the night. He looked great and he sounded even better. Too bad he had to bring his wife into his performance. He needs to distance himself from her if he ever wants to be Keith Urban the country star again. Right now, it's all about her. He is Keith Urban, the husband of Nicole Kidman, the famous actress. Maybe he's happy with that now, but I would think that'll grate on him after awhile.

I did think that most of the male artists in particular were off pitch big time. I don't know why, but it made Keith's performance that much better. However, in the end, he didn't win. And I don't think he will win any more country awards until he can separate his private circus from his career.

And this is exactly what the Skeptics said in July 2005. At that time, I thought it was sour grapes. Now I realize that they knew exactly what would happen to Keith. Kidman is poison.

i knew it from the git-go.....and this is one time i wish i'd been proven wrong....but i don't think so. just like imahick said, she's poison.

Oh boy, what happened to that man?
He didn't look horrible, but the suit seemed a little too tight, and he seemed a little uncomfy around the collar (or was that me who felt uncomfy watching him)?

The Mrs. Dress was a little better, but I really think she needed something else done with her hair. What I don't get is why all the photos of her lately are of her grabbing her bump??? I mean, it is a little strange. How many of us walked around like that?

Okay, don't throw things at me, I mean she can show off her baby bump, but I thought it was a bit too much.

As for Keith's performance, I did like it. I thought it looked like a lot of fun. Hope he really did enjoy himself.

UMyths if you read carfeully you would know the article meant she stole the show at the red carpet. Channel Nine in Australia isnt concerned with the actual awards. Their country music is a whole other animal. They even had to mention Renee Zelleweger in reference to Kenny Chesney winning. Probably to remind the public who he is.

If anything, what overshadowed the awards was the ACM'S decision to let fans vote online for EOTY. What a silly silly idea. It just turns the awards into American Idol.

Nicole's dress was the best of the night. And i will agree with you she did take a lesson from Angelina Jolie, on what NOT to wear on the red carpet. Dont wear a gown that can fit 3 people under it. Dont wear a gown that looks like its was spray painted with colors inspired by what comes out of a sewage plant. Dont wear a gown that has so much material at the sides, it looks like you could sprout wings and fly away.

Nicoles outfit was spot on. It fit well, was a multidimensional color (sometimes grey, sometimes lilac), was formal enough for the event but not too formal, hence the short hemline. Not too much jewelry and the hair done simply.


I laughed out loud when you wrote Carrie thank God and not Nicole and Keith. Well of course not! Arent you being a bit overdramatic Umyths? No one thought the couple was shunned by this. Talk about grand delusions.


Watching the telecast and looking at the pictures both Nicole and Keith had about the same expressions everyone else did throughout the night. It wasn't a great night as far as performances go. Keith's was the best (what was Taylor Swift thinking?) And George Straits wife looked about as thrilled as Nicole did when Kenny won EOTY. In fact Reba seemed down right somber compared to Barbara Mandrell's delivery KC won at a previous awards.

It was a nice night for the couple and Im sure their minds are on a much more important event in their lives, the birth of their baby.

RC I get you'd say anything, even if you didn't actually believe, it just to annoy some people here. But, are you actually so delussional and up Nicoles ass so far to think she was actually the best dressed?

Granted her dress was better than what she usually wears. But there were at LEAST 10 other females better dressed on that carpet.

Making that point, I won't even point out the rest of your delussions. There are far too many. Go pop some of your meds fruitcake!

This of course, comes from an 18 year old with much beauty experience. I like Taylor, don't get me wrong. But she is hypocritical. She poses for People with no makeup to show natural beauty, yet she thinks NK is most beautiful in person? There's not a natural thing left to HER!

yingyang said...

Is it me or did NK's bump grow 30 fold from Mother's day? That photo op of NK in that ugly pink thing on mother's day had no hint of such a Mountainous Load, But on "the big TV" did it appear that she ate a load of S--T? I had 3 babies in 3 year's, my hootchie-coo never needed to be held in public. I still think something's rotten in OZ?

Tu Comp was the worst song of the night, KU's mic was not turned up enough and you could see the Pissedoffness in his face.

The suit was nasty, the whole night was a flop from start to finish. The best part of the night was CU snub of NK :) CU went up a few notches in the Likeable list with one fast move :)

when will the nightmare end???

notachance said...

I just love how you skeptics read into things - "CU snubbed NK when she won". CU owes nothing to NK - or KU - when she wins an award. She's going to hug the people in HER inner cirlce. Just because she happens to be sitting next to KUNK doesn't mean she has to give them hugs or even acknowledge them when she wins. And even if the wanted to offer their congrats on it, they shouldn't expect or feel left out if she didn't turn to them.

Geez, how many times has KC not even looked at his "date" when he won?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
It's cuz he ain't had the right MAN sitting next to him

notachance said...

As for all the belly holding - maybe, just maybe, she feels like it's going to fall out and needs to hold onto it. After all, she's not used to having a soccer ball inside of her, only a pea after eating her dinner.

Or perhaps this point of view - the photog's are all screaming "Nicole, show us your belly!" and she kindly obliges.

Taylor Swift...SM???? Since when does a 17-18 year old's blog mean anything??? How long did you look for that? She would fall for anything...any teenager would! Not knocking Taylor at all, just the fact that you think because she blogs Nicole is the "Nicest gracious person ever..enough said" anybody would think that is the truth. I'm sure you, as well as any other mature humuan out there knows...teens thoughts are swayed with the ever slightest of gesture. Nicole probably graced her with a sentance...and she is forever greatfull!
