American Idol Cannot Say 'The Voice' On Show, Says Nigel Lythgoe

Is there a cutthroat competition brewing between ‘American Idol’ and ‘The Voice’? HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively that ‘AI’ producer Nigel Lythgoe is ordering the show’s judges not to utter the words ‘The Voice’ under any circumstances!

It sounds like Nigel Lythgoe wants American Idol viewers to stay focused on his reality singing competition and not that other one on NBC.

We just learned that Nigel is mandating judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, and Steven Tyler to not use the term “The Voice” under any circumstances — and we can understand why.

The Voice is averaging 19.4 million viewers, while its Fox predecessor is averaging 18 million viewers.

Regardless, Nigel’s mandate seems to be in full effect; just last night on AI‘s March 7th episode, judge Steven Tyler referred to contestant Jessica Sanchez as “the one” among the Top 13 remaining hopefuls.

Gavin found something interesting: intimacy is established when two
people messaging on the site drop their formal language after quite some time.
It is a niche business opportunity with less competition and a great market potential.

Paid subscribers can even exchange emails and messages.

Fellow americans, stop this american idol. Exalt Jesus christ only. Whitney is not God. Come to Jesus. Stop singing the songs of Whitney houston. Stop buying her albums. Repent from your sin of idolatry. Revere Jesus christ alone. Jesus is our lord and saviour.

Whitney houston was a prostitute and a whore. Whitney was a drug addict, chain smoker and a crazy woman indeed. Do not follow whitney to hell. Whitney was immoral, wicked, hot tempered idiot. Whitney is suffering for her sins in hell fire. Whitney is in hell.

Stop idolizing Whitney houston. Accept Jesus christ into your life as lord and saviour. Whitney has turned to dust and is in hell. Repent from your sins. Stop smoking, drinking, prostitution, nightclubbing, lying, partying. Hell is real. Do not join Whitney in hell.
