On this day in 2016, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman nearly broke the internet when they released an epic Carpool Karaoke-esque video of themselves singing along to Urban and Carrie Underwood’s duet, “The Fighter.”

The adorable clip was posted to Urban’s social media accounts and raked in millions of views within hours.

“Oh my God, I love this song,” Kidman gushes in the opening of the clip.

“Good, thank goodness,” Urban laughs before they lip-synced the track together.
