Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey

Already At Each Other's

Mariah Carey wasted no time proving what we told you 2 weeks ago -- there's only room for one diva on "American Idol."

Carey and Nicki Minaj went at it during the first "A.I." taping Sunday in NYC. When Nicki started critiquing a contestant, Mariah would interrupt -- not once, but many times. Each time Mariah interrupted, Nicki fought back by loudly talking over Mariah.

One "A.I." spy said Mariah and Nicki tried to cover their disdain for each other but everyone saw through it, adding, "These girls just don't like each other."

You may recall, we reported when producers called Mariah to tell her that Nicki would probably be joining her as a judge, she hung up the phone.

I can't determine precisely which season it was that AI jumped the shark ... big time ... but it was definitely when that one season woman did a bikini reveal. I still can't figure out WTF that had to do with anything. It has now become "all about me" with the judges, and oh by the way, there are some people singling too!

Happily, clocks ticking, A.I.--hiring Minaj was awesome--her lack of talent and their dislike for each other means it will all be over soon.

Yeah, Whatever. No one cares about that stupid show.

What we want to know is: Did Robert and Kristen get back together? The Sun claims they have exclusive information to that effect. Please set the record straight. We NEED to know ;o)

I feel like the producers must secretly want this show to go down the drain, how else can their recent decisions be explained? LOL

This show has become more and more about the judges and less and less about the contestants. This year is going to be the worst of all. Glad I quit watching years ago.

I was already at the crossroads with this show. Now that they hired this ghetto clown N Minaj, I am totally done with it. SHe is so nasty. A succubus, she is.

Nicki Minaj supports Romney so Mariah what's-her-name can go to hell.

all about the money    

A.I is a dead show. Why has talent shows suddenly become about the judges and not the talent lately. More judge drama does not equal more viewers/ratings. If anything its driving people from the shows. Between judge drama and a easily abused voting system that negates all talent in favor of popularity. there is little the show can really offer....certainly not real talent from the performers AND judges. A.I, X-Factor who cares.

Two Diva's acting as they should towards each other. If AI fails this season they'll blame it on cat fights & who's not making enough $...

Minaj is so nasty. Her music sucks, she looks like a shedevil. Her voice just makes me want to chew glass. This talentless skank needs to go.
