American Idol Producer to Lee DeWyze: LIAR!

by at . Comments

We didn't see this feud coming.

Just hours after the season finale of American Idol, producer Nigel Lythgoe called out season nine winner Lee DeWyze for not appearing on stage and handing the trophy to Scotty McCreery.

Lee's response to the accusation that he snubbed the show? No one asked him until the final moments.

But now Lythgoe has fired back again, basically calling DeWyze a liar. He Tweeted today: “True, he wasn’t asked to sing, but Lee knows he was asked to present the trophy [to the new Idol] a week before.”

The producer then said he didn't "wish to continue" this feud, but it's safe to assume DeWyze will reply to this charge.

Whose side are you on in this controversy?

UPDATE: Lee has simply Tweeted: "I respect the decisions made for the finale, and hope alls well that ends well."

Who cares? What a small minded prick Nigel is. Rich, spoiled and such a frail ego. Who gives a shit?! Me thinks he doth protesteth too much. Lee's response was classy and dignified. Good for him.

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
