Every year American Idol hopefuls sing the latest big hits during their auditions and it looks like Sia‘s “Chandelier” was this year’s go-to track!

So judge Harry Connick Jr. took it upon himself to try and belt it out in what is probably one of the funniest Idol moments yet.

Watch the video below!

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Harry Connick Jr’s rendition of “Chandelier”?

Phillip Phillips Files Major Lawsuit Against 'American Idol' Team

Phillip Phillips has filed a lawsuit in hopes of getting himself released from the recording, management, and merchandising deals with 19 Entertainment that he entered into as the winner of American Idol.

The 24-year-old singer, who won season 11 of the hit Fox series, says he was “manipulated” by 19 Entertainment and its affiliated companies into accepting jobs.

“I am very grateful for the opportunities provided to me through appearing on American Idol,” Phillip said in the lawsuit (via The Hollywood Reporter). “The value that the fans and the show have given to my career is not lost on me. However, I have not felt that I have been free to conduct my career in a way that I am comfortable with. I look forward to being able to make my own choices about my career and to being able to make great music and play it for my fans.”

Among the things that Phillip stated in the lawsuit were that he was forced to perform for free for an Idol sponsor and that he didn’t know the title of his latest album before it was released publicly.
