Harry Connick Jr!!!  SOOO Excited :) :D!!!

According to The Hollywood Reporter the singer/pianist was choosen after frontrunner, Dr. Luke dropped out of negotiations.

I've met him MANY times in person and pretty sure, like Keith Urban-people will LOVE HIM...Totally nice, funny guy, very charismatic and talented himself...and have u seen how adorbs he was/is in Hope Floats w/Sandra Bullock???!!

What do you think?  Harry Connick Jr - a good choice to join idol judges, Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban?  Who would you want to be the next judge?
