With ‘American Idol’ coming to an end for good, the March 31 episode was the perfect time for Keith Urban to debut his new song to the show’s fans! Check out his amazing performance of the feel-good song ‘Wasted Time’ right here.
Keith Urban, 48, got a taste of what things are like on the other side of the American Idol judges’ table during the show’s March 31 episode. The country star performed his new single “Wasted Time” on television for the very first time one week before the series finale, and we’re totally obsessed. Watch here!
The 48-year-old actually just released the new song days this week, so there was no better opportunity to debut it on TV than this! Keith sounded amazing while performing this nostalgic track, on which he fondly looks back on summers past with a smile. What better tune to get us feelin’ good about summer than this?!
It was a crazy night on Idol, as the Top 3 were revealed ahead of finale week. Unfortunately, Mackenzie Bourg was voted off, which means La’Porsha Renae, Dalton Rapattoni and Trent Harmon are the trio who will get another chance to perform next week.
It’s definitely going to be a bittersweet few days as the series comes to an end, with one of these three being crowned the final American Idol winner. Oh, and on top of that, dozens of former contestants will return, and we’ll get performances from the likes of Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson and MORE. Can’t wait!
As for Keith, he has a big few months coming up once Idol ends. If you’re loving “Wasted Time,” check him out performing it a the ACM Awards this Sunday, April 3, and then make sure to pick up a copy of his new album, Ripcord, when it drops on May 6! He’ll also be out on the road touring all summer, so things definitely aren’t slowing down!
