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.
