This post is difficult to write because of my Dishmaster bias. I’ve met Nigel Lythgoe, and he’s one of the coolest, nicest guys in this business. That being said, I think he made the wrong decision in airing his conversation with Jermaine Jones. It’s absolutely disgusting to take a troubled kid and expose his dirty laundry on a national forum in what was akin to a cross-examination. This should have taken place off the air. It’s too personal, and there comes a point where it’s more important to be a human being than a producer. Watch below.
