Singer dishes on possibly joining the hit Fox show, where he was a guest judge last night Harry Connick Jr on 'American Idol'.Harry Connick Jr. performed and guest judged on American Idol last night, and he says he's in talks to join the judging panel full-time!

"You know, they kinda wanted to know if I would be interested in it," the singer told E! News exclusively backstage. "It's a fun show. It's been talked about before, who knows what'll happen in the future."

The contestants seemed to respond well to Harry's honesty and down-to-earth personality as he guest mentored them. As for what he thinks it takes to make a good judge?

"I think you need to be completely honest, and I think you need to be diplomatic," he explained. "I think there's no reason to be mean, but it is called being a 'judge.' You have to judge. That's what you do."

No word from Nicki Minaj yet on how she'd feel about adding Harry as a judge, but we already heard her thoughts on bringing back Jennifer Lopez yesterday.

Do you think Harry would be good on Idol?
