Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj

Mariah Carey pulled Nicki Minaj aside yesterday and convinced her ... feuding would not be good for the show, and they both needed to stop the antics they pulled during Sunday's auditions.

"American Idol" sources tell TMZ ... Mariah and others were ticked off Sunday that Nicki arrived 45 minutes late ... and that set the tone for the whole day. Although Nigel Lythgoe is saying everything was hunky dory Sunday, we know it wasn't.  Mariah talked over Nicki, criticizing her critiques, and Nicki fired right back.

But on Monday, Mariah buttonholed Nicki and the 2 agreed ... a feud wouldn't be good for the show, so they buried the hatchet and walked down the hall smiling, hand-in-hand.

But here's the thing. We're thinking a feud is exactly what "A.I." needs.

I thought we used to watch AI for the new talent, now its about the bad pre-show contestants and the judges antics, thats why I don't watch it.

Mimi doesn't get along with anyone, nor does she need to when you think about it. At any rate, this Minaj person is an irritant and would get on a rocks nerves much less those of an infamously temperamental diva.

I'm probably 1 out of 50 people that have never watched this show and I don't plan to start anytime soon.

Come on now grammar/spelling police. You should cut TMZ a break when you consider they could have had a FUDE instead of a FUED. Apparently middle school hasn't taught this yet, so how would their employees know this?

Maria is just a B and if she thinks anyone around her will steal her thunder she lashes out at them

As they age, Mariah looks more black, and Nicki looks more white. Why is that?

Ehh. I'd only tune into the show Mariah slaps Nicki Minaj on national television. Other than that. Ain't watching.

So, feuding is what the show is actually about??? Oh, I thought it was aspiring performers who's hopes and dreams for stardom were on the line..... Why don't they turn the show into the Mariah and Niki mud wrestling idols show!!!! No more Idol for me... no more X factor either. Watching Brittany make dumbass faces is not my idea of entertainment.. Oh and lets not forget America's Got Talent....Howard Stern ruined that show for me too.

It's all BS and its for ratings if they couldn't stand each other they wouldn't have signed up for the show. And Nicki can't sing and damn sure shouldn't be judging .

Mariah should be pissed. Minge is a talentless hack who relies only on shock value to get attention (case in point - look at that ridiculous hair!)
