A lot of auditioners don't know who Harry Connick Jr. is. Really?! He's pretty darn famous. Also, that means you didn't watch the Season 9 or Season 12 episodes of Idol when Harry was a judge. Your loss! Munfarid Zaidi is a big HCJ fan. He's from Sugarland by way of Pakistan. Harry got up from his chair and picked up Munfarid who dangled in the air. Harry said if Munfarid blows him away on the first song, he'll hold him like a baby for his second song. Thank goodness Munfarid's first performance - of Adele's "Crazy For You" - was good, which led to the best moment of the episode. Harry got up on stage and cradled Munfarid, who geniously belted out, "I just want you close..." from Alicia Keys' "No One." Jennifer and Keith were dying of laughter, and a new internet craze was sparked - Cradling! While you wait for the next episode of the awesomely revamped Idol, submit a photo of you cradling someone with #Cradling.
