From the moment he hit the stage Thursday night, belting out his rocking hit "Kiss A Girl," to his final encore, "Better Life," Keith Urban held the WE Fest crowd in the palm of his hand.


They clapped, they cheered, they sang along -- and sometimes, they even sang a phrase or two for him, while Urban held the microphone outward, an unabashed grin on his face.
