Harry Connick Jr. Starts Cradling Trend on 'American Idol'!

Harry Connick Jr. has started a new trend on the season premiere of American Idol – cradling!

The 46-year-old entertainer was amused that so many contestants clearly did not know who he was that when 19-year-old Munfarid Zaidi professed his love for the crooner, Harry came over and picked him up.

Harry then said that if he liked his audition, he would pick Munfarid up and cradle him like a baby while he sang another song… and it happened!

“did you like the cradle??? we need more cradling!!! post your cradle pix!!!let’s get it trending! #cradle #idoltonight,” Harry tweeted. He then posted some photos from the set of his new movie Dolphin Tale 2 cradling some co-stars and crew members.
