Keith Urban paid respect to many of the great musicians who passed away in 2016 during his Music City Midnight New Year's Eve performance in Nashville Saturday night (Dec. 31).

His eight-minute set, leading up to midnight and airing on CNN, included a medley of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah," Glenn Frey’s “Take It Easy," David Bowie’s “Heroes," Merle Haggard’s “Mama Tried” and Prince’s “Purple Rain."

Wife Nicole Kidman appeared with him onstage to assist on "Heroes" -- bringing to mind her "Elephant Love Medley" musical scene with Ewan McGregor in the 2001 film Moulin Rouge, which sampled the song -- and stayed beside her husband to dance along to "Mama Tried" and "Purple Rain."
