"HEARTBROKEN" Keith Urban kept a photograph of Nicole Kidman on the 'American Idol' judges' table last night  because he was upset not to be supporting her in Cannes.

The country singer admitted on last night's episode of 'American Idol' he was missing his spouse, who is in France promoting her new movie 'Grace of Monaco', so insisted on having a framed photograph of her on the judge's table.

He said: "My wife is at the Cannes Film Festival tonight and it's heartbreaking I can't be there. This is her on the red carpet as of tonight, so I'm going to pretend she's here and that I'm there all at the same time. It's the one night I couldn't be there."

The 46-year-old star - who has children Sunday, five, and Faith, three, with Nicole - also apologised for a raunchy joke he made when asked by host Ryan Seacrest who his wife was wearing.

He replied: "I don't know. Unfortunately, not me, but I don't know who that is. Did I just say that? That is my inside voice, I'm sorry."

Meanwhile, Nicole - who walked the red carpet at the film festival in a blue beaded, strapless Armani dress, which she teamed with Jimmy Choo shoes and Harry Winston jewellery - admitted in Cannes that her personal life always comes before her career.

Asked what she would opt for if she were forced to choose, she replied: "I would [choose love], absolutely. I wouldn't even think twice about it."
