Harry Connick Jr “In Talks” for American Idol Judging Role

Harry Connick Jr.

Forgive us if we’ve become a little obsessed with American Idol of late – but we just can’t stop ourselves!

The latest name in the frame for the judging panel on Fox’s hit reality singing show is none other than Harry Connick Jr. The crooner is no stranger to Idol, having previously appeared as a performer and as a guest mentor and judge.

While Keith Urban and J-Lo are already confirmed names, the third vacancy has been a matter for much speculation this summer.

Now that Dr Luke has bowed out, apparently due to a conflict of interest with his record label, Connick Jr has to be the favorite for the last judging place.

Here’s what the guy himself had to say when he spoke to E! News:

“What I’ve done so far has been fun, so I’ve had a great time. It’s a fun show – who knows what’ll happen in the future.”

We’ll bring you more news as it happens.
