“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 singer said during the show.

When host Ryan Seacrest asked him who his wife is wearing, Keith said, “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.”

Joining Keith at the show were fellow judges Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr.
