Harry Connick Jr. takes his turn as a contestant on American Idol

DETROIT, MI (WVUE) - Local American Idol judge Harry Connick Jr. decided to take a turn as a contestant on the show.

His impromptu performance for Keith Urban happened when fellow judge Jennifer Lopez took a break. But Connick did not get rave reviews.

Check out the video above to see his performance.

You can see more silliness from the judges, and of course more singers trying to make it big, on Season 13 of American Idol.

Thursday night, the judges hear from contestants in Atlanta.  Tune in to FOX 8 at 7 p.m. to catch all the fun.
