Harry Connick Jr. Currently In Conversation To Be Third American Idol Judge This Season?

American Idol still has one more spot to fill at its panel next to judges Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban, and we have word that Harry Connick Jr. is in talks to sit his cute and talented butt in the empty chair this season!

The third spot was temporarily filled by writer/producer Dr. Luke, but as we reported earlier this week, he amputated himself from the table due to a conflict of interest.

Harry may not have a medical appellation, but he does have a few Grammys, so we figure he’s pretty qualified to know when something’s pitchy.

And hell, we’d probably even let him do surgery on us, too — he’s hot and seems smart! LOLz!!!

Confirmation may be coming soon, so stay tuned!

    Re: rosebud99 – Can you stop trying to seem like the wise and reasonable guru on EVERY POST? You come off as a pretentious know-it-all with no life but to sit and analyze and comment on everything that pops up on a gossip site. At least the people who do read this site daily don't have to comment on it and let everyone be aware that they have nothing better to do. Jeez. Harry Connick Jr. is incredible, especially as an artist, and "American Idol" has a lot more heart than "X-Factor" and "The Voice." He's just what the show needs, and he's been a really good coach on the show a few times before and genuinely liked being there. Hope his deal is finalized soon. :)

    I really like him, good move. If they pick him I might actually start watching the show again.

    Harry, Jr, and Keith Urban are two of the most charismatic, talented and nicest guys in the business. They both have been around and know music of all genres. This is exactly what Idol needs to get it back on its feet after the 'diva' disaster.

    No, still don't give a shit.
