The famous singer explains that they normally call one person on stage- and, as we can gather from his words, they have already brought one person on stage earlier. However, this time is different since they decided to call one more person, Lauren Spencer-Smith.

And she gave everyone a night to remember.

“It was two people,” Keith Urban said before introducing Lauren, “I really loved, and I wanted them both to come in and sing tonight. Particularly this next girl that she’s got an amazing little voice and she’s only eleven.”

Lauren was only 11-years-old, despite her young age, she got on stage full of confidence.

When Urban announced her, the audience started cheering and clapping. Now, for a girl her age, this looks like an overwhelming experience, but Lauren seemed quite cool with all these reactions.

Then the singer asked her where she’s from and what school she goes to, and then he says she is going to sing a song, and encourages the audience to join in if they know the song. This is a common practice among singers since, this way, they actively engage the audience in their performance.

Urban starts playing the guitar and Lauren starts singing “Make you feel my love” by Adele and Bob Dylan. Even from the first verse, the audience gets excited with the girl’s exceptional voice.
