Harry Connick Jr. has been a welcome addition to the new season of “American Idol.”


Don’t get us wrong — he looks great. The ladies have spoken:


But Twitter has been buzzing about what looks like bad makeup or a little too much self-tanner.


Oompa Loompa? That gives the “American Idol” judge an idea:

Heh. Don’t worry, Harry. You’re not that orange.


Harry Connick, Jr. could be one tough #AmericanIdol judge

    Cheetos backstage.

      With his palms?
      He must be a hoot at the dinner table.

        Well, if you just scoop a batch outta the serving bowl, and leave them in one hand while with the other hand you take one or two at a time, it can occur quite easily too, without it being the ill manners you seem to envision.

        • waltzingmtilda

          Hmmm…sounds like you have experience in this area. 😉

        • grais

          Okay, you win. I’m not up on Cheeto-eating etiquette.

          (But it’s probably just some smear-on tan anyhow)

        • Bgoulette

          Chopsticks, all the way.

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    He needs to call John Boehner’s tanning salon.

      For a refund? Certainly not for tips!

    Orange is the new black…

  • greatunconformity

    That’s a common occurrence in muslim cultures, though it’s usually just the left hand.

    Harry, orange away. You are too damn fine.

  • AmericanLass

    Its not the color of his skin but the content of his heart ♥

    • Brenda Hellwig

      And his jeans, mmmm.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    For his success, Harry only needs his good looks, his singing voice, his stash of Cheetos (or Doritos?), and his Impersonation of Jesse Jackson #IndependenceDay XD Jawamax 8<{D}

  • John Howard

    Guy goes to the doctor, in a panic because of his orange ‘tool’. Doc starts asking questions to figure out the source. He asks ‘What do you do in your spare time?”
    Guy answers “Eat Cheetos and watch porno movies.”

    • H50 ✓RAT

      Second verse, same as the first….

  • thedumbblonde

    Still swoon-worthy in any color.

  • praymorenow1

    Less spray tan or new spray tan technician (is there such a thing)…….
    He eats Cheetos non-stop…..wear gloves.

    Harry may be breathing life back into a near dead show, elevating it with badly needed freshness, authenticity and good natured humor. And some people are STILL focused on skin color?

      Bunch of racists. Orange people are people too.

    • Mapache

      its all about race…the oranges are the most discriminated against minority…..all the hate simply because of a person’s skin color!

    • H50 ✓RAT

      Sad, sad state of affairs.

  • Mapache

    Harry Connick went to the doctors concerned that his penis had turned orange…the doctor asked him if he knew what could have caused it and he said, “I don’t do nothing all day but sit on the couch, watch porn and eat Cheetos.”

      That’s funny right there.

    Ill take him not matter what color he dyes himself. Hes delicious inside and out. Ya cant do better than that!

  • Jer

    Talented AND doesn’t take himself too seriously.

    People can turn their palms orange by ingesting vast amounts of carrot juice as well.

  • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

    He might be the best judge in a talent competition ever. I might actually watch the whole season this time.

  • lainer51

    sometimes narcissism takes a wrong turn, or in this case, a wrong color.

  • Michelle

    He can leave orange all over my body

  • Payton Manning

    The liberty school understands that we benefit more from the voluntary collaboration of free men than from centralized government coercion.

  • No-bum-a

    Orange you glad I commented?
