Harry Connick Jr. Questions 'American Idol' Judge's Capabilities

The singer particularly points his comment to Simon Cowell who does not have singing background, claiming his replacement should be a musician.

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. The singer/actor admires Cowell but admits he would like to see a musician replace the Brit as a judge on "American Idol" next season, instead of another sharp-tongued critic.

Connick, Jr, who himself is among the names billed as a potential Cowell replacement, says, "He was amazing on that show but I also think he's not a musician, and when you don't have a musical background, you have to resort to different ways to get your point across." He adds, "He can't say, 'You're singing out of tune', when he may not know if you're singing out of tune."

TV executives are currently searching for a replacement for Cowell on "American Idol" following his decision to quit this year. Connick, Jr. became an overnight favorite when he mentored finalists for an episode on the most recent season of the show.
