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.

Mariah needs to grow up! She is old enough to be Nicki's mom.
These situations always occur when you put an ancient bitch on a contemporary show.

The poll should ask if the fighting was real or was faked for ratings.

I bet Minaj had to promise Carey half of her food.

I'm sure the pittance of people who still watch this tired old program are really excited about that.

Don't think they are good or bad. Don't think it really matters. Fox would love to blame failure on Mariah and Nicky. Best talent they ever had was with Lopez and Tyler. In fact the drama between those two may be a lot more entertaining than the show.

I think what "society needs" is to have "AI" OFF the air already. It is stupid show...it always has been and it always will be and throwing some stars at it won't make it better and is only continuing to appeal to the same audience of sheep it always has. And if Nicki Manaj wanted to judge me on pure and natural talent, well for one any one who thinks that isn't an utterly ridiculous statement in and of itself needs to have their heads examined. But two, I would politely respond with "and who might you be" because I don't listen to sh*t music.

TMZ reports whatever uncle Nigels tells them to report. They have to keep their name in the news.

Does anyone really care about Idol anymore??

Apparently Mariah Carey has no respect for Nicki Minaj or her opinions either...HAHAHAHAHA.......and she SHOULDN'T. ***Also....If Mariah freakin Carey can show up on time....there is NO EXCUSE for Nicki Minaj to be 45 mins late...disrespectful.

Nicki was 45 minutes late? Was she busy looking for a reason that allows to judge someone's talent or was she late because she was busy channeling Bozo the Clown?
What a no talent this Nicki is...

im sure it was cause they were both on the rag at same time, ya know how women sync up when they work together, well im sure the intensity will return to the judges table in about 28-30 days.
