Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood pulled out all the stops (and all the laser tricks) for their performance at the 2017 Grammy Awards. Taking the stage with their pop-bent "The Fighter" collaboration, lifted from Urban's Grammy-nominated Ripcord album, the two singers traded off lyrics to the dance-heavy anthem. "I know he hurt you, made you scared of love, too scared to love," Urban begins the song over pulsing club beats and an inescapable drum loop. "He didn't deserve you 'cause you're precious heart is a precious heart. He didn't know what he had and I thank God, oh, oh, oh. And it's gonna take just a little time, but you're gonna see that I was born to love you."
Underwood, dressed to the nines in a slinky bedazzled skirt, then joined him onstage for the call and response structured chorus. Neon yellows, reds and greens splashed across the stage down around them, electrifying the allure and pop polish of the performance. The lines were certainly blurred between country and pop, but the hook was undeniable.
Both Underwood and Urban were up for several Grammys, facing off in Best Country Solo Performance for "Church Bells" and "Blue Ain't Your Color," respectively. Urban's Ripcord competed for Best Country Solo Album, and "Blue" was up for Best Country Song, as well.
The star-studded Grammy lineup also included performances by Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini, Demi Lovato, Ed Sheeran, Beyonce, Adele, Pentatonix, Maren Morris, Alicia Keys, Chance the Rapper, Anderson .Paak, Sturgill Simpson, A Tribe Called Quest, The Weeknd, Daft Punk, Lady Gaga and more.
