Keith Urban's kids make a rare public appearance & The Voice premieres tonight

On last night’s Golden Globes, Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman and their daughters Sunday and Faith appeared virtually. It’s the first time we’ve had a clear look at the girl’s faces. I also found out more about their time at the Sydney opera a few weeks ago. They broke protocol to stand at the end of the performance because they thought it was so great. That’s when the guy behind Nicole swatted her with his program. Keith said he wanted to whack the guy but instead showed great restraint.

The ACM nominees have Maren Morris and Chris Stapleton each getting six nods. Miranda Lambert has five and Ashley McBryde and Thomas Rhett have four. ACM snubs include Carrie Underwood, no Luke Combs in Single, Song or Album of the Year and Keith Urban was not in either Entertainer or Male Artist of the Year.

Finally – The Voice premieres tonight on NBC and Blake Shelton’s back as a judge. He only got the job years ago because Reba turned it down. She said no because she didn’t think she’d be able to tell somebody they’re terrible. In a few weeks Dan + Shay will be on as Blake’s Battle Advisors.
