American Idol 2010: Harry Connick, Jr will mentor for Frank Sinatra week

Harry Connick, Jr will act as the celebrity mentor for American Idol hopefuls this week, as they attempt to out their own spin on some Frank Sinatra songs.

The New Orleans singer is well versed in the art of covering a Sinatra tune, having covered many in his albums and concerts to date.

This could be an awful wee for the five remaining contestants as these swing numbers are so well known and often iconic tunes and often singers give a boring but true rendition or they mix it up so much that they destroy the classic song.

We think that Big Mike can totally pull off one of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ songs but Casey James may not be so lucky and will it lead to frontrunner Crystal Bowersox having another bad week?
