Harry Connick, Jr. Gives Random Girl a Shoulder Ride on 'American Idol' (Video)

Harry Connick, Jr. carries a random girl from the audience on his shoulders and to the judges chair during an episode of American Idol on Wednesday (April 9) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 46-year-old judge went into the audience during a performance from contestants Jena Irene and Caleb Johnson and let the girl sit on his shoulders, but then brought her on stage.

“We didn’t have time for the dismount,” Harry said when he got into his chair.

“I’m sorry. I had to feel what the crowd feels… I haven’t even introduced myself. I’m Harry,” he added as he shook the girl’s hand.

Not buying it @ 04/10/2014 at 1:09 am

Surely Keith could have found an attractive young man in the audience to “mount” on his shoulders.

# 2

I really think that might have been Harry’s daughter.

# 3

Keith is the best!

# 4

@kelly: That’s not one of his daughters.

# 5

Keith Urban’s smile makes me smile!

what a mess @ 04/10/2014 at 2:16 am

Harry Connick is creepy. JLo is boring. Keith Urban is gay.

I don’t know what he was thinking putting a teenaged girl on his shoulders like that. I like Harry in general, but this was an error in judgment. I wouldn’t be happy about this if that was my daughter. The girl looked uncomfortable too. Harry should know better. He has teenaged daughters!

Well, that girl on Harry’s shoulders looks identical to his daughter Georgia … Just sayin’

So is that the orb in those pics…walking in the white T-shirt and grey pants and oversized tennis shoes…or did Fox invite Goofy to the taping of Idol? Goofy must of had the day off work from Disneyland, obviously. Once again, the orb DOES have “childbearing hips” doesn’t he? His body measurements are “34-26-83.” Surely the orb dresses as if he’s prepared to punch into work and mop the Idol stage!

Thank you folks! I’m here all week!

bahahahaha @ 04/10/2014 at 3:35 am

@maclen: urban could birth a calf through those hips!

@Mark:

@Jan:

She was screaming…with total happiness :P

I was there at the taping tonight and sat beside this girl before we were led into the audience. I asked her if she was excited because she looked SO happy to be there. We were right near her mom when his happened and her mom was just bawling and FREAKING out with pure joy over this, as was the rest of her family. They were all SO happy, and that little girl was just very shy :) I thought it was a little odd at first and then I realized I was just being cynical, it was totally innocent and freaking made that girls LIFE, as well as her family’s. She will never forget that!!

@Chelsey: aka American Idol publicist has joined us.

Again, most of these jealous, vulgar remarks are made by one person aka THE CRAZY ONE. If it has anything to do with Keith Urban or Nicole Kidman The Crazy One climbs out from under her rock and starts spewing her dirty lies. Just wanted to add I enjoy American Idol very much, like all three judges, my favorite Keith Urban.

What a sicko, talking about a mans hips. I bet Nicole loves his hips and everything about him. Keith has it all, talent, like no one else, looks, great build and yes good looking hips !!!!!!

Thanx for all of the Keith Urban pictures. Quite a handsome man. Love AI this season. Great panel of judges. Know the music business.

@Jan: I completely agree. I feel like, had she been a little girl, it would have been ok, but she’s in that age range where those types of things become extremely creepy. You could tell he had a “talking to” because afterwards, he was like “I’m going in!” to Ryan, and then they showed him standing with a bunch of older people. That was funny.

Watched last night’s show…loved the 70′s & 80′s because that was MY time. The performances were decent…would not necessarily been my choice of songs from that time period…although these kids weren’t even born then. Caleb, in my opinion, is running away with the competition…on his talent, craftsmanship (he can entertain), and punch. I’m not on his bandwagon because personally I don’t think any of them are superstar material.

Now, to the judges. I do not for the life of me understand why they (all in their 40′s) are acting like a bunch of teenagers on Spring Break. Keith & Harry (and Ryan, too) get a bit too over-the-top in their reactions and behavior. They are not at Summer Camp or a Frat Party. As to the hijinks, they need to can it. I, like all of you, know the ‘demographic’ they are attempting to appeal to…and that is OK…AI is a show for the young. What AI should have done is hire 3 judges near the age of the demographic they are appealing to. There are enough former Disney Channel stars needing work that they could have filled the roster. Grab some of them off their tours, just like the ‘oldsters’ they have on the panel now, and have a go at it.

I have been fans of Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. for years. Not so much with Jennifer…but I do think she’s a great entertainer. I love their banter with each other, and the remarks made aside of everything…even the double-entendres and such…but as authoritative musically as they really are, they are lowering their behavior to ‘be’ like the demographic.

Those bright-eyed girls in the so-called pit may well meet that age group, which is fine. But, there is a fine line between having a bit of fun…and taking it too far. For all the fun is really is for them…at their age…all of the judges could well have kids that old (Harry does) if their lives had been different early in life, rather than their thirst for fame & fortune before starting their families. Look how old Keith & Jennifer will be when their little ones are that age….they will be ‘ancient’ in their children’s eyes! LOL!!

@Mark:
If that was not his daughter, Harry Connick should be fired!
Leave the little girls alone, Harry.

And, we can all do without your sexual innuendos. It’s a family show, why do you have to add that element to it . Really…dismount, nay nay? FIRE HIM!!!!

@kelly:
I thought so too. I kept waiting for him to introduce her. She was so non-reactive…she didn’t really smile or laugh…most girls would have been laughing their heads off or at least blushed and smiled. That’s why I thought she had to be Harry’s daughter or someone he knew. Strange.

You people are sure a bunch of prudes !!! Make something dirty out of someone having a little bit of fun. Unbelievable !!!!

Just love the judges this years. That Keith Urban, all I can say is WOW !!!
