“My wife is home with the flu,” Urban said when asked where his wife was during PeopleTV’s 2020 Grammy Awards red carpet pre-show. “A lot of that going around.”

The 52-year-old singer stepped out for the 62nd annual Grammy Awards to present the show’s first award with actress Cynthia Erivo. He told the audience that Kidman is “in good hands” despite his absence.
