In an email to industry expert Bob Lefsetz, Rodger blasted the full-page ad Stoute placed in the New York Times, which criticised the fact that artists such as Justin Bieber and Eminem were passed over in favour of Arcade Fire, who played the closing number of the show after collecting their honour.
Rodger said that the letter was "a nice piece of self-publicity" for Stoute, before saying that it was "sheer coincidence" that Arcade Fire were lined up to end the show.
"Arcade Fire had the final slot on the Grammys as the ratings are low at the end of the broadcast. It really is that simple. We were one of the least-known acts on the bill for a network audience. Don't you think I wanted a better slot for the band?” he said.
The band's manager also pointed out that the last half of their performance of 'Ready To Start' was covered by sponsorship messages and missed from international broadcasts.
Finally, Rodger stated: "Arcade Fire deserved the win this year. They made the best album."
