Singer/actor Harry Connick, Jr. is recovering after surgery to repair a torn tendon in his arm.

The American Idol host was trying to lift a heavy snowball machine out of his car, when he accidentally injured his bicep tendon.

Sporting a cast and sling as he promotes new movie Dolphin Tale 2, he explains, "I bought this snowball machine... and I was picking it up out of the back of my truck and I just heard a snap and I was like, 'My gosh, what did I do?' and it turns out I just ripped my bicep's tendon off of my bone.

"So about a week ago, I had surgery."
