It had to be her!

Though he had a tense night on Wednesday's American Idol, you wouldn't know it based on Harry Connick Jr.'s upbeat social media dedication to his wife on Thursday.

The singer made good use of the #tbt meme and melted hearts with a sweet shot from his and wife Jill Goodacre's 1994 nuptials.

"21 years with the greatest woman on earth… happy anniversary, Jill," the American Idol judge, 47, wrote of the former Victoria's Secret model, 51, with whom he has three daughters.

Thirteen years after being crowned the first American Idol, Kelly Clarkson is returning to where it all began.

The "Heartbeat Song" singer will serve as the guest mentor on Wednesday night's American Idol, and Clarkson recognizes that she is uniquely qualified to advise the season 14 contestants.

"It's cool be able to kind of mentor a kid that basically is me 13 years ago," Clarkson tells PEOPLE. "And it's nice for them to see that you can have longevity and a career from a show like this. I know a lot of people get flack for coming from shows like this. I know I did. It's a talent show, but at the end of the day, it's not how you get into the industry, it's what you do once you're there."

You'd be wrong, though. Urban explained to Conan O'Brien Tuesday night that there's one bit of criticism that still haunts him from the days when he was first starting out, and – surprise, surprise – it came from a televised talent show judge.
