Nigel Lythgoe sort of, um, forgot about Lee DeWyze

“Idol” has its own pomp and circumstance. Over the years, one of those “traditions” which I never paid much attention to was the “passing of the crown.”

That means the winner from the year before comes on stage to congratulate the current winner, or something like that. Or they at least perform at some point during the finale. Honestly, this isn’t a big deal to me. But Lee DeWyze fans (yes, there are a few of them) went ballistic when they found out a few days ago that Lee wasn’t invited to perform or even come on stage for the finale. They viewed this as a deliberate diss of a man who has shown the least success of any winner to date and a symbol of how awful season nine was.

So it was interesting that Nigel Lythgoe, who wasn’t around a year ago and knows very well that a good number of folks didn’t care for season nine, asked Lee at the last second (literally) to come on stage to congratulate Scott McCreery. Lee, who was at least in the audience, declined.  Heck, he has his pride. This was all according to Lee’s tweets. MJ compiled the tweets into a coherent whole:

Hey everyone, first off I want to say congrats to Scotty & Lauren, awesome job. Well done Scotty! Secondly, just for the record… I was not asked to be involved in the Finale. It wasn’t until about 2 minutes before they announced that Nigel had approached me and asked if he could “borrow” me for a second. I didn’t feel a last second jump on stage was appropriate. It was Scotty’s moment.I appreciate American Idol, and the opportunity it has given me. And the people who have made that show possible. I am not angry, or bitter etc. It was an amazing Finale, and I would have loved to be a part of it. I just wasnt asked.Good luck to all the Contestants and stay true to yourself. Thanks everyone for your support, tour coming up… Good times I’ll talk to you all soon. Love ya!

Good morning. I am not a Lee DeWyze fan at all, but basic human courtesy was abandoned in this case, IMO. Shame on Nigel!

If Idol doesn’t like the way the audience picks the winners, they need to revamp the decision process. It was rude to snub Lee, Crystal hasn’t done that much better and Scotty might be a Carrie or he might be a Bucky. Either stand by your winners, or revamp the voting system.

Nigel’s a bully, plain and simple. Even if Nigel did “ummm, forget about Lee DeWyze” if his last-ditch zero-hour effort to include him didn’t pan out, why did he have to tweet about it and make Lee look bad? Lee has done nothing but represent Idol in a respectful fashion for the last year..he always makes sure to acknowledge his gratitude for Idol and the opportunities it’s given him. He didn’t deserve this…plain and simple.

You know, frankly I don’t care. Yes Nigel should have asked Lee to at least appear in the finale but he didn’t. Bad form on Nigel’s part. But to be honest, while Lee would have been a much more appropriate performer than Beyonce or Gaga or TLC, he also is by far, our least talented winner(I’ll give Scotty a little more time before I decide if he should take that honor)so I’m not unhappy that I didn’t get to see him.

I have always been down on Lee for being the the least talented winner, and, for that matter, the lesat talented Idol contestant EVER, but I do admire him for remaining in his seat.

Me either, Deirdre, but can you imagine how embarrassing that was for him? I just think common decency would compel his being invited. I don’t care if I ever see him perform again, but to publicly humiliate the guy? It is not his fault he won last year. And, I mean that literally!

I can’t stand Lee Dewyze the musician/singer. But I gota respect the way he handled that situation.

Bottom line is Lee is not talented in any form whatsoever. He will probably not retire playing music for a living. And the fact that people out there voted him the winner last year was a very scary moment for the Idol franchise. It’s obvious Idol doesn’t think too much of Lee as a performer. Whoever voted for him over way more deserving constestants last year, mainly Crystal, should be flat out ashamed. This wasn’t just a matter of opinion, it was a wrong.

“It’s not his fault he won last year”

That is pretty funny. But I don’t see how he was publicly humiliated just because he wasn’t even mentioned during the show. Publicly humiliated would of been throwing the spotlight on him and having the whole theatre laugh and point. Fact is, they wanted good performers and good performances during the finale to entertain us in order to get great TV ratings. They would not get that with Lee.

I don’t like Lee but Nigel screwed up and Nigel should apologize. I don’t see that Lee was humiliated since he was obviously invited to the show just not asked to participate. I mean, should Idol be like Miss American and parade the outgoing title holder before the new one is announced? Lee performed during a results show, he was acknowledged then as the reigning Mr American Idol.

My dream of X Factor being good is deflating. What a crock.

Oh wait, this thread was also about something else. Oh yeah bad form on Nigel’s part. Just because Lee only sold his album to 41 people, that doesn’t mean you don’t at least feature him on the show a little bit. He was in the background as Ryan was doing some gag bit or something. He couldn’t have turned around and said “hey… ummm, ummm oh Lee, hey Lee.”?

Scotty WILL be successful. Lauren- I don’t think so. Haley- you’ll read about her next when she enters rehab in 5 years. James- too bad it’s not 1987. Casey- successful. Pia- successful. Paul- he’ll be famous for who he marries. Jacob- successful.

Last season was dreadful. The judges were so much better this season. I hated Kara DiaPoopie.

Taylor Hicks still plays shows. I was down in Biloxi a few weeks ago and they had his name and picture on the big sign outside the Bea Rivage. Ruben Studdard was up there too. Along with CCR, Earth Wind and Fire, and a few other bands I can’t really recall right now. He’s not selling out arenas, but he does well enough. He makes a comfortable living playing music which i’d guess 95% of musicians can’t say the same. I have no love or hate for Taylor Hicks, but he is a showman and a good singer.

At least Lee Dewyze was talented and personable. Scotty is obnoxious and is by far the worst singer among Idol winners.

I guarantee if Simon had been on to offer the correct criticism, Scotty would not have made top 24.

The simple solution to bad winners is to change the voting from “vote for” to “vote off”. When you have several talented singers, the educated vote gets split, while the ignorant drones vote for their person regardless of performance. But if you flip it, the educated vote then becomes united to drop the weaker performers sooner.

Not having Lee in some form be a part of the show was a bit tacky…but such is life.

As far at the Favorites, I’ll say I have a really bad track record. But I I do have a better average than Dan Uggla! That’s not saying much, I know!

Season 1: Kelly!!! (No one else)
Season 2: Clay, Kimberley Locke, Kim Caldwell
Season 3: Diana
Season 4: Carrie! …and Lindsey Cardinale
Season 5: Taylor, Pickler (and Melissa McGhee)
Season 6: Jordin, Blake (and Gina Glocksen)
Season 7: Cookie, and Kristie Lee (not all for the singing, yes, I fess up)
Season 8: Allison, Kris (and Alexis Grace)
Season 9: Crystal and Didi Benami
Season 10: Pia and Lauren!

So, I got it right with Kelly, Carrie, Jordin. I didn’t necessarily want Taylor to win, but I knew he would. And I didn’t think Cook would get past Archie, but he did…

Sometimes winning the whole thing is not all its cracked up to be. Some of the better successes were not even the winner. Sure winners like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are unparallelled successes. But Daughtry and Adam Lambert are just under them as far as success. I’m predicting that Haley from this season will become the most successful to come out of this group. Her voice was the best by far and her unique stylings will be something refreshing in a copycat industry (see Scotty aka Josh Turner wannabe).

I don’t get this thing about Lee……seems to me he was shamelessly pimped over Crystal the last week or two of the competition last year…..remember “Hallelujah” with the smoke and big chorus ? Remember Simon and the gang talking about what a great human being Lee was ? Crystal was obviously the more talented performer, her major sin seemed to be that she had bad teeth and a strong personality (meaning she wasn’t going to play along with the Idol agenda). Okay, so they pimped Lee, they got what they wanted….so what’s their beef now ? Be careful what you ask for, you might just get it !

Let me go on record again saying Lee’s winning last year was a complete and total abomination. Crystal was 1,000 times more talented and deserving, but there was no stopping the little girls and cougars from bloc-text-voting for that “cute, sweet guy who worked in a paint shop and makes himself cry.”

That said, it was categorically wrong for Nigel and company to boycott him from getting so much as a quick shout-out while he was sitting in the audience. It was very petty, and in bad taste. Show some respect for last year’s winner, even if he does suck.

I don’t get all the “hate” expressed here! In my humble opinion, both Lee and Crystal are very talented. I think a lot of people voted for Lee because he grew, as a performer, and became more self-confident. Crystal was already so good AND so confident and many probably believed that Lee needed the win more. His voice is somewhat unique (recognizable) and he appears to be a sincerely nice person. Why do so many refer to him as “untalented”? Even Bruce Springsteen liked him!

Looking at the picture in the last thread… did you guys realize that Scotty looks like Alfred E. Neuman? I’m not sure if that comparison has been made before ;)
