June 10, 2010 07:42:28 GMT


Harry Connick Jr. has questioned Simon Cowell's capabilities to judge budding talent on reality shows like "American Idol" because the music mogul has no singing background of his own.

He adds, "He can't say, 'You're singing out of tune', when he may not know if you're singing out of tune."
