Nigel Lythgoe Shocked by ‘The Voice’ Emmy Win



The Voice won the award for ‘Outstanding Reality-Competition Show’ at the 65th Annual Emmy Awards on Sunday (Sep. 22), Though many fans were happy with the outcome, there’s one person who isn’t happy with the choice and his name is Nigel Lythgoe.

Lythgoe (who was let go from his post as exec producer of American Idol) took to Twitter following the NBC show’s win to voice is discontent with the decision.

“Shocked that The Voice won. Not so much for #SYTYCD but for #AmericanIdol,” tweeted Lythgoe. “The first, the best and the program that changed the face of TV.”

Lythgoe’s show, So You Think You Can Dance, was also nominated in the same category up against The Amazing Race, Project Runway, Dancing With the Stars and Top Chef. He went on to explain why the decision shocked him.

“I’m talking about over the 11 years American Idol changed the face of television across the World it didn’t win an Emmy,” he continued. “Not just lately.”

Lythgoe is referring to the fact that American Idol has lost ‘Outstanding Reality-Competition Show’ for the past several years, but newcomer The Voice was able to beat everyone in the category, after having been on television for less than five years.

Lythgoe, 64, was let go from American Idol in July 2013.

Jennifer Lopez Loses Court Battle To Ojani Noa Over Home Video


After years of battling things out in court with ex-husband Ojani Noa, Jennifer Lopez has lost the fight. The two, who were married briefly, and apparently Noa still has  an embarrassing home video that they took part in during the marriage.

So how exactly could Noa win a case against Jennifer Lopez? According to Radar Online, Noa found a loophole in the law. Instead of the tape being released by Noa himself, he sold the tape to his ex-girlfriend, Claudia Vazquez and she will release the footage on his behalf.

Ed Meyer, the executive producer of the project told RadarOnline the following: “Claudia Vazquez has been allowed to release the home videos of Ojani and Jennifer. The project will deal with JLo’s rise to fame, and her marriage to Ojani. Claudia will be meeting with video distributors on Tuesday, and hopefully, a deal can be made very soon.”

You have to wonder what Noa’s motives are. It can’t be money because I’m willing to bet JLO would have paid him off.  It has to be a case of  “the scorned lover.” Why? Because I am pretty sure JLO is not the only woman, as we have seen may times before, in Hollywood that has recorded intimate details of her relationship.  If Noa truly care about JLO, I doubt he would have even mentioned having a tape let alone releasing it into the hands of an ex.
