Nigel Lythgoe Responds to Simon's Idea to Put 'Idol' Winner Against 'X Factor' and 'Voice' Champs

'The problem is the Idol winner will be a star by then,' the 'American Idol' producer tweets in reply to Simon Cowell's challenge to hold a super final for the winners of the three shows.

The rivalry among "", "" and "" apparently gives an idea to hold "a super final" for the champions of three shows. "Maybe the winner of @TheXFactorUSA this yr should compete with winner of The Voice & Idol in a super final. Just a thought. I'd be up for it," so he proposes via a tweet.

Quickly responding to the "X Factor" judge's suggestion is Nigel Lythgoe. The executive producer of FOX's "Idol" writes on his own Twitter page, "@simoncowell suggests the IDOL winner should take on the voice and x-factor winners. The problem is the Idol winner will be a star by then."

None of the "Voice" camp has responded to the challenge proposed by Simon. Meanwhile, in another news it's reported that all four mentors of the NBC singing competition, , Green, and , have signed up to return for the third season which will likely debut in the fall.

A spokeswoman for the Peacock, however, stated that "no final decisions have been made" regarding the next season of the show.
