Consider the American Idol judging panel very almost, almost complete!

While we've been wondering who would scoop up the last spot, it seems Harry Connick Jr. wasn't wasting any time by doing some wondering.

We already told you he was under consideration, but now it seems he's so damn close to being locked down.

It's rumored final negotiations with his contract are being worked out, so that he'll be sitting next to Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban next season!

Considering the show lost Dr. Luke in a heartbeat, Idol execs better finalize Harry's contract ASAP before he slips away as well!

    wow theyre really going for an old audience! I wasnt planning watching anyways but thats the final nail in the coffin. Clueless new producers. Dullest panel ever.

    I think Harry Connick, Jr. is the best possible choice for an American Idol judge.
    Down to earth, good sense of humor, knows music, and easy on the eyes for the ladies.

    Yes… Nothing spells ratings than a crooner who was at his peak 10 years ago…. Harry is a talent, but young and fresh is what they need. What happened to the possibility of past contestants? I would love to see J HUD or Fantasia on the panel!…. C 'mon AI, get your shit together…. I'd even be thrilled to see Paula back!
