Simon Cowell vs. Ryan Seacrest
Simon Cowell and host Ryan Seacrest faced off frequently during the 10 years they shared the Idol stage. Tensions between the pair boiled over following a Season Six performance from contestant Chris Sligh. Seacrest, it seems, got perturbed when Cowell referred to him as "sweetheart."

"You've made this very uncomfortable," Cowell replied.
