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."
