"Chris should not be taking the heat over this"
Taking heat isn't the issue.
Taking credit for orginality of arrangement is the issue.

Chris did not take credit for it himself. Simon gave him credit for it and I don't see where Chris had time to respond before they cut away and moved on to commercials and then the next singer.
Should he have acted like one of the 2 male twins from the auditions, where he ran up on stage taking up someone else's time to make sure everyone got it right before they signed off for the show that evening?
I don't believe that Chris would be allowed to call up the media right now in the middle of the competition to get this all straightened out. Why should he straighten it out? He was not the one that gave himself credit for it, it was Simon that gave Chris credit.
