Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj

CALL TRUCE

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.

so no 3rd choice for "who cares"... the judges isn't whats going to boost ratings... its talent... and honestly it doesn't look like AI knows what that is anymore... i don't even remember who the last couple of winners of the show were.

If their not fighting, I'm not watchin. Simple as that. Nicki Manaj giving "critiques" is a JOKE in its self. You know we should really start a petition, "Nicki Manaj is not allowed to give advice". What do you think?

This is the one situation where Mariah should totally go "diva" on her! Nikki Minaj can't hang on Mariah's coat-tails much less "judge" anyone else's talent. She's a joke & trainwreck. AI must be desperate. People that have been kicked off AI have more talent than Nikki Minaj.

Where's the "I don't care" option on the poll? It's not like I'm ever going to watch them.
