Playing injured

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban made their way through LAX on Friday presumably for Nashville, where the CMA Awards are happening on November 9th. Keith is nominated for Entertainer of the Year which IΓÇÖm told heΓÇÖs desperate to win, and he was supposed to be performing but his reps just confirmed on Thursday that heΓÇÖll require minor out-patient surgery to have a polyp removed from a vocal cord. As such, heΓÇÖs had to rearrange his schedule although heΓÇÖll apparently be able to honour ΓÇ£one-song appearance commitmentsΓÇ¥ until the procedure, at which point heΓÇÖll shut it down for full recovery...which I guess means heΓÇÖs playing injured on Wednesday. Hero! Rumour has it, heΓÇÖll be paired with that low singer who won American Idol, Scotty McCreery.

(Sidebar: did you read Entertainment WeeklyΓÇÖs review of low singerΓÇÖs debut album? ItΓÇÖs HILARIOUS:

Scott McCreery may be the oldest 18-year-old alive. On Clear as Day, American IdolΓÇÖs latest champ sounds like heΓÇÖs 52, and not just because of the Randy Travis baritone coming from his Opie Taylor mouth. ItΓÇÖs that heΓÇÖs anticipating being ΓÇ£old and grayΓÇ¥ and reliving high school memories that are still ΓÇ£clear as dayΓÇ¥ (um, thatΓÇÖs because he hasnΓÇÖt graduated yet). His worldΓÇÖs so archaic, girls donΓÇÖt even send him texts: He has to say ΓÇ£Write My Number On Your Hand.ΓÇ¥

Amazing, right?)

Anyway, is CMA voting still happening? Can Keith earn some sympathy votes? ItΓÇÖll take a lot of them to beat out Taylor Swift. And all that stress seems to be taking its toll. Keith looks grumpy, non?

As for his wife, this is the first sighting weΓÇÖve had of her in a long time. She was probably avoiding the embarrassment of Trespass - click here for a refresher. Now that thereΓÇÖs something else to focus on, another conversation in play; itΓÇÖs safe for Gran to emerge. Also, since sheΓÇÖll be walking a carpet soon, maybe all her recent procedures have settled in properly.
