And apparently, the show’s rebooted judges panel — Connick, Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban — have decided that hugs rank among the season’s hottest gift ideas.

Press play below to see the goofy ad spot, in which J.Lo wins the prize for “most generous” and Connick scores the title of “most absurdly emotional.”

Idol returns on January 15 (8/7c on Fox).

  • It’s too bad that Cowell isn’t on the panel. Him on one side, Connick on the other would be perfect. Good and evil. Yin and Yang.

  • It’s too bad they refuse to limit the voting. With this season’s panel the show has a chance to be great again, but not with the power voting. Sigh.
