Keith Urban to Perform on the ‘American Idol’ Stage Next Week
American Idol is coming closer to an end, as the show — which is in its final season — is down to the Top 4 finalists. In addition to slowly narrowing down the remaining finalists to crown a winner, American Idol's performances will continue, but this time the judges will be in the spotlight. Next Thursday (March 31), Keith Urban is set to take the stage during the two-hour broadcast for a performance. While he hasn't revealed what song he'll be singing, he will surely bring his guitar shredding.
The American Idol Top 4 finalists include MacKenzie Bourg, Trent Harmon, Dalton Rapattoni and La’Porsha Renae. Next week's episode will have the hopefuls performing three songs; a judges’ pick, Scott Borchetta’s selection and each contestant’s choice as a tribute to their hometown.
Urban recently announced that his forthcoming eighth studio album Ripcord will be released on May 6. He has been readying a new music video for his next single as well, and has shared some behind-the-scenes of the video shoot on his Twitter.
“Ripcord is almost done — and it’s been an exhilarating journey,” Urban says in a press release. “Getting to work with so many new musicians and writers and co-producers has been a divine experience for me — and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”
"I’m seriously chomping at the bit to kick off this tour,” Urban shares. “We’ll be playing a lot of new music from Ripcord, all new production, new cities where we’ve never played … and Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris? It’s gonna be potent and unbridled!!!"
