Cannon attempts hugging world record

Mariah Carey’s husband attempted the feat at New York’s Citi Field, the home of the New York Mets baseball team, and he was confident he would succeed.

In a post on his website, the America’s Got Talent host wrote, “I am going to make HISTORY!”

Cannon’s record attempt has yet to be verified by Guinness officials, but he would have had to beat the current best of 1,749 hugs in an hour.
