A show insider says, “She’s obviously got a lot of hatred for Simon and wanted to humiliate him on his big night.” Holt said, “I basically took a stand against people miming on television and against Simon and his dreadful influence on the music industry."

Best Beers And Wines For MEMORIAL DAY Barbecues from goodhousekeeping.com
If you celebrate Memorial Day -- and the unofficial arrival of summer -- with a big cookout or picnic, you're going to need something to drink with all that grilled deliciousness. Aside from a pitcher of iced tea or lemonade, you could just pick up any old beer or box of wine and be done with it. But with just a little bit more effort, and a few guidelines for finding a suitable match, you can make that brisket you've been lovingly tending for the last 12 hours taste even better.
Without getting too detailed (it's summer -- who wants complicated?):
- Delicate foods are natural partners with lighter style beers and wines; the opposite is true as well.
- Bubbles are great palate cleansers and are terrific with fatty foods.
- Beverages with a hint of sweetness tend to go well with spicier foods.
- Bitterness can be refreshing and is a good foil for rich foods.
With salads and light seafood dishes (like our Grilled Shrimp Salad) Beer: Lightweight, citrusy wheat beers (e.g., Sam Adams White Lantern, Anchor Summer Beer) Wine: Refreshing whites with some acidity, like sauvignon blancs or dry rieslings (e.g., Leitz Dragonstone Riesling)
With fried chicken, grilled sausage, potato chips Beer: Moderately bitter amber lagers, with a hint of caramel flavor, or crisp, yeasty, bracing European pilsners (e.g., Brooklyn Lager or Pilsner Urquell) Wine: Crisp, dry sparkling whites, like Spanish cavas or Italian proseccos (e.g. Jaume Serra Cristalino Brut Cava or Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco)
With burgers, grilled chicken, grilled salmon Beer: Moderately bitter and fruity pale ale. Pale ale also goes great with guacamole (e.g. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale) Wine: Dry, fruity rosés or lightweight, juicy red Beaujolais (e.g. Las Rocas Rosé or Georges du Boeuf Beaujolais Villages)
With BBQ ribs (like our Kansas City Style Ribs) or brisket, or grilled steaks Beer: Rich, caramel-y, moderately bitter amber ales (e.g. Sixpoint Brownstone) Wine: (If the sauce isn't very sweet) Full-flavored syrah, or spicy red zinfandels for any of the above, Argentinian malbecs with the steak.
