Kidman & Urban Sing Duet At Aussie Ex-pat Ball

Aussie actor SIMON BAKER received a tuneful treat as he was honoured at the G'Day USA gala on Saturday (16Jan09) - fellow antipodeans NICOLE KIDMAN and KEITH URBAN sang him a duet.
The Mentalist actor was picking up an Excellence in Television and Film Award, along with Muriel's Wedding star Toni Collette, at the Aussie ex-patriates' ball, which takes place annually in Hollywood during Los Angeles' Australia Week.
And Kidman, who was scheduled to present the award, gave Baker a taste of home as she appeared on stage with her husband - before kicking off her shoes and dancing and singing while Urban strummed Men at Work classic, Down Under.
The pair playfully changed the lyrics to, "His name is Simon Baker. Surfer dude. Home renovator. He was bound to be a Hollywood player."
And Baker was thrilled with the presentation, quipping: "Wow. That song is something. That was a bit of a treat."
Golfer Greg Norman was also feted at the ceremony.
