Nigel Lythgoe clearly has beef with Simon Cowell, because he went after him … after Simon went after the “American Idol” reboot.

We got the longtime EP of the OG “Idol” Friday on his way to E Baldi in Bev Hills, and he thinks the new judge’s panel — Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie — is rock solid.

It seems Nigel’s heard the promo for our new show, “OBJECTified” Sunday night on FNC, where Simon scoffs at singers judging singers and then targets Katy Perry.
