Harry Connick Jr for American Idol?

Harry Connick Jr is in talks to join American Idol.

According to E! News, the crooner could join returning judges Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez on the panel.

The singer has previously appeared as mentor to the contestants and a guest judge on season 12 of the Fox TV show but talks are in place for a bigger role.

"It's a fun show. It's been talked about before, who knows what'll happen in the future," he previously told E! News.

"What I've done thus far on the show has been really fun, so I've had a great time."

It was previously reported that Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, is in talks to join the judging panel.

Keith is the only judge to be announced for the show so far, but J-Lo is also said to be announcing her return.
