We recently learned that Harry Connick Jr. would be joining Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban on the American Idol judging panel, and the crooner is very excited. Though he’s not a newbie to the show, Harry insists that we should expect the unexpected this season!
When American Idol returns in January for the new season, we’ll get to see Harry Connick Jr. on the judging panel alongside Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez, which will be a big change from last season’s diva drama. While Harry is no stranger to the show, as he has guest judged and mentored in the past, he is still very excited about his new gig.
Connick explained to Fox recently that we should expect the unexpected this season, adding: “I mean, I didn’t know what to expect, and Keith and Jennifer have both done it before, and I think the whole fun of it is not knowing what to expect.”
Harry also explained that the trio will never run out of interesting conversation, which should keep the season fun and exciting for viewers as well. “What I really dig sitting up here as I watch Jennifer and Keith, they are processing every single person individually…you really have to take each person seriously and as a singular performance,” Connick also stated.
As a viewer of the show, I can definitely say I am looking forward to seeing Harry Connick Jr. interact with Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban. It will definitely be a breathe of fresh air after last season’s disaster on the panel.
