So Keith had his long locks chopped, and no, it wasn’t wife Nicole Kidman’s idea—but she did help him execute the plan.

“I just wanted to hack it all off at some point,” Keith told the Australian Associated Press.

Idol was always constantly shooting and I thought, what’s the least disruptive time as far as Idol is concerned?

“I said to Nic, ‘I just want to get it all cut off,’ and she was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, it’s just hair, you know. If you don’t like it, it will grow back; it’s no big drama,’” he said.

“So she was shooting a campaign here in Nashville and her hairdresser was in town. I went to visit her on the set and she was like, ‘Why don’t you get him to do it?’ and I went OK and I just walked in, he cut it off and it was done.”

The national TV debut of Keith’s new ‘do happens on CBS’s Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! Friday night (Dec. 6) at 10 p.m. ET.
