Lythgoe says: “[Jeff] has been asked not to participate in the choice of music with David or be in the room when David is working out his routines that he wants to sing. He’s fine to be in the studionothing wrong with that. We just want David to be able to be free like everybody else to get on and do what they want to do.”

    He is young, but he is old enough to do this without Daddy’s help. He is awesome and is really going places because of his own talent, not because of Daddy. Step back Dad, let this boy spread his wings!
