HOLLYWOOD - Early on into the American Idol live season and Harry Connick, Jr., has already emerged as the "Mean" judge.
The eleven remaining contestants were individually polled and asked if they thought that the Louisiana Cajun had become much meaner than he was back during the auditions.
Nine of the young singers replied yes. One who did not want her name revealed said that she has not seen a judge be so mean since the days of Simon "The Viceroy of Venom" Cowell.
She said that at one point during the last show she actually was afraid that Harry was going to run on stage and either bite her or hit her with his red Coca-Cola drinking cup.
Jennifer Lopez, who is one fabulously sexy muchacha on the other hand has always been like a mother hen to the contestants.
J.Lo with the fantabulous butt and erotic legs can be stern but that is the exception and not the norm. And when she is a bit harsh she ends up sugarcoating it by saying sweety at the end.
And Aussie judge Keith Urban also tends to be a bit more diplomatic in his critiques. He will tell someone that they need to act like they truly belong here and aren't just here because they're cute, have a high IQ, or are rich.
Meanwhile, Harry Connick, Jr., told Hollywood Innuendo's Fajita San Guacamole that American Idol is paying him a hell of a lot of money to be honest and not to be nice like Mariah Carey was last year.
