Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood Debut ‘The Fighter’ on the GRAMMYs


The stage at the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards was set on fire tonight when Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood performed their collaboration “The Fighter” for the first time ever on television.

The performance was introduced by actor John Travolta, who said the duo was the most dynamic pair since Danny and Sandy, a reference to his role in the iconic musical Grease. Urban opened the song solo with his guitar in front of a reflective backdrop, with the Oklahoma joining from side stage, donning a form-fitting silver mini dress.

The song is the fifth single from Urban’s GRAMMY-nominated album Ripcord. It’s playing at Country radio now.

Urban and Underwood aren’t the only country stars to take the stage at this year’s GRAMMYs. Nominees Maren Morris and Kelsea Ballerini are both on board to perform stellar collaborations with Alicia Keys and Lukas Graham respectively. Little Big Town will also take the stage to honor the Bee Gees ahead of the tribute scheduled for Feb. 14.
