Fortunately for his hair-loving fans, Connick Jr. was wearing a bald cap. He previously described the process of doing away with his hair for the Annie role.

“I’ve never had a bald cap on. I kept looking at myself. I was blown away. How do you do that? It’s such an art form,” Connick told “TODAY” hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager last month,” per Yahoo! “If this was Broadway and eight times a week, I don’t know if I could put the bald cap on every day.”
