Nigel Lythgoe Slams Simon Cowell’s Request For ‘Sing-Off’

February 21, 2012 10:00 AM by Lisa Princ

FOX‘s American Idol may have declined in ratings a bit, but don’t assume that it means that Nigel Lythgoe is getting desperate. In fact, after The X Factor‘s Simon Cowell took to Twitter to suggest a sing-off duel between American Idol, The X Factor, and The Voice, Nigel Lythgoe slammed back, and as usual, he reminded us why American Idol is still number one. Read on for more…

A sing-off between American Idol, The X Factor, and The Voice? While Simon Cowell may like this idea, as he recently took to Twitter announcing that he would love to see the winners of all three shows compete in a sing-off, Nigel Lythgoe is not biting. Instead, Nigel slammed back with his own Tweet, which once again, reminded us of why American Idol is still number one, as replied to Simon with: “The problem is the ‘Idol’ winner will be a star by then.”

Maybe Simon Cowell is the one who is desperate for a ratings boost? The X Factor did not do nearly as well as Cowell had hoped in its first season, failing to compare to both American Idol and The Voice. Meanwhile, both American Idol and The Voice are tied up in a ratings war, but again, Nigel brought up a great point (as Randy Jackson had been saying all along), American Idol definitely had the advantage, as the show has a long history of producing stars such as Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and the newest winner who reaching superstar status quickly, Scotty McCreery.

This leads us to ask – where are the winners of The Voice and The X Factor? It may be early for The X Factor, as the season just ended in December, but we sure will be interested to see how Melanie Amaro stacks up to Scotty McCreery.
