Lee DeWyze singing "That's Life" on "American Idol," Harry Connick Jr. says his wife thinks he's hot, "and after meeting him, I think he's a new and improved version of me." Ha!

Wow, what a great start, tone is perfect for the tone, he really gets Frank Sinatra's style, takes Connick's advice to heart on really playing with the words. By far the best perfomance of the night, he's now the unquestioned front-runner to win this thing. This is a performance people will actually watch again.

Randy loves it, Ellen says "if this was the last night of performances, you'd have just won this whole thing." Kara asks him straight out if he thinks he can win, he says yeah, she says, believe it, "you can win this thing."

Simon says Connick brought helped you show your personality and confidence, "by far the best performance of the night so far."
