While the “American Idol” top 12 gave it their all on Tuesday night, as usual, Ryan Seacrest and the judges took the opportunity to turn the spotlight on themselves for a brief moment.

As Seacrest was interviewing Melinda Doolittle right before her performance, a viewer’s question ignited yet another made-for-TV spat between Ryan and Simon.

“We have a question from Georgia. What do you consider the hardest part of this contest?” Ryan asked Melinda.

“Wow. I would have to say the high heels and these dresses. I like my tennis shoes and my sweat pants. I’m sorry,” the “Idol” hopeful replied.

“Simon, any advice on the high heels?” Ryan asked, opening the floodgates for a typical snide Simon response.

“You should know, Ryan,” Cowell obliged.

“Stay out of my closet, Simon,” Ryan said, prompting Simon to take a swing at the softball Seacrest just lobbed to him.

“Well, come out,” Simon predictably panned.

“This is about the top 12. OK? Not your wishes,” Ryan replied.
