Ian Benardo interrupts Dane CookIan Benardo's his name. Interrupting Dane Cook is his game. The 'American Idol' finale had its own Kanye moment on Wednesday when lippy loser Benardo grabbed the mic from Cook and raged against his one-time foe, Simon Cowell.

The episode came during a song called 'Simon Said,' in which Cook put some of Cowell's best zingers to music. Near the end of the tune, a bevy of 'Idol' rejects appeared onstage and that's when Benardo creeped up and took over. "Who cares? It's all about Ian Benardo tonight!" he announced. "I'm going to replace you, Simon Cowell! No one has a thing to say about you, just me."

On his Twitter page, Cook railed against Benardo for interrupting him. "That was not staged. Weirdo hijacked the song," he said. "Just glad he didn't hit me in the face w/ the mic or American Idol would be American Beatdown."
