The American Idol game of musical chairs continues.

The latest judge to sign on: musician Harry Connick Jr., says the Hollywood Reporter.

Though Fox hasn't made an official announcement about the new judge, recent tweets have hinted that Connick will join returning singers Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban for the elderly show's 13th season:

Connick retweeted Ellen DeGeneres' tweetthat said Connick "might be a judge on American Idol! He loves tofollow in my footsteps. It's like having a boring little brother."

And Idol host Ryan Seacrest tweeted, "Got some @AmericanIdol news for you coming very soon..."

Ratings have not been impressive for the singing competition.And the previous ladies, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, had an on-airfeud that overshadowed anything happening on the stage.

And of course, Connick also has a new album out, Every Man Should Know.
