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.

Dear TMZ:

Please fix the typo in the last sentence. The word is "feud" not "fued". Thanks.

This is just the latest P.R. bull. They still can't stand each other.

It doesn't matter anyway. Idol is dead. This will be the worst season ever & have the lowest ratings ever. Mark my words.

I hope they don't think that is going to add to the one thousand or so viewers they will have this year.

TMZ you're reaching and trying so hard - as usual to make this feud happen. both mariah and nicki have said themselves that there's no feud between them. so take several seats.

Nothing like a threat of losing millions to make you act like an adult. They both suck, but at least MC can sing. Nicholas 3some is annoying and over saturated.

Mariah is a sweetie, not the diva people claim she is, I don't know Nicki at all, not familiar with her music or personality yet, but if they do have some rivalry and feuding on the show, obviously that would be a good thing for the show, not bad, as it will pull in viewers who stop channel surfing to watch the drama, as with Simon and Paula.

Now the truth,
This was all for publicity. For millions of dollars anyone would get.

I am not a fan of either, and I think that Mariah is probably a major pain in the a$$, but I can't blame her on this one: Showing up 45 minutes late is very unprofessional.
Who the he11 is Nicki Minaj to keep other people waiting like that?
