Harry Connick, Jr. is the "new" judge on this season of American Idol.
His honest and often critical comments of the contestants earned him the name "Harsh Harry."
What does the jazz crooner think of that name?
"No one has ever come up to me and said, 'You're harsh.' I do think some people may be taken aback by some of the things I choose to say, but I don't interpret telling somebody, 'This is what you could work on' as harsh," he said.
So his critiques and criticisms are constructive.
He continued, "I wish it was a six-hour show, but we have about 30 seconds to try and give them all the information we can. I feel compelled to try and help them if I can."
That makes him a good judge! He is not trying to win friends. He is trying to HELP.
