Harry Connick Jr. Auditions On 'American Idol,' And It's A Beautiful Disaster

Posted: Updated:

When Jennifer Lopez stepped away for a restroom break on the latest episode of "American Idol," Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban took the opportunity to have some fun. It was just another example of the great chemistry this new panel is showing in the 13th season of the show.

While they waited for Lopez and the auditions to continue, Connick Jr. stepped up and decided to audition himself. Why not? After all, most of the contestants don't seem to know who he is anyway. He introduced himself to Urban, stammering the whole time. "I'm so nervous, I'm sorry," he said. Then, it was time to sing, and it was so terrible that the producers could be heard laughing. "Uh, they’re not laughing at you, they’re laughing near you," Urban said.

"You're so beautiful," Connick Jr. told Urban, but it wasn't enough to get a "yes." At least he got a consolation prize. Urban signed his ankle, and Connick Jr. hopped out of the room to show off his new ink.

The bromance continues on "American Idol," Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
