No blood today on the set of "American Idol."  In fact, it was downright peaceful and professional ... sources connected with the show tell TMZ.

We're told from outward appearances at least ... Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj buried the hatchet and were civil with each other during the entire day of auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Our sources say everyone was "embarrassed" by the outburst between Nicki and Mariah captured on video and posted on TMZ. They apparently took it to heart. Our spies say the confrontation "shocked everyone back into place."

We're told aside from everyone getting along, the talent was great and the judges meshed together better than just about any configuration the show has ever had.

The question ... will the detente last? Everyone is boarding a plane right now for Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Stay tuned.

whats the different between tragedy and flawlessness?... Cotton Candy would be tragedy, Mooriah would be flawlessness.

I don't care if it lasts or not--I just want this show to end. There are plenty of shows out there with some quality to them--this show is done. Stick a fork in it.

Of course, the show must go on! These people want to get paid and possibly get invited back next season.



I'd like to see the complete video, not just Nicki's comeback. Something had to have happened for her to blow up, hence why I am not dogging Nicki out assuming stuff like most people are. I actually think both ladies had a hand in that ridiculousness, but the clip only showed a tiny fraction of their exchange.


I REALLY THINK IT'S THE FAULT OF MARIAH AND NICKI, not just Nicki.


After all the stories TMZ posted before they even officially started judging together, I knew we'd see craziness right away.

Oh please. They saw all the posts and disgust from the public, and decided not to play the "all for ratings game" because it wasn't working. I refuse to watch with Minaj on there. SHe's ridiculous and not worthy. Plus looking at her makes me want to puke, seriously.

It doesn't matter if they get along or not--Minaj is still a joke--she has zero talent. A.I. blew it big time and it's over. No PR stunt will save this pathetic show.

Not fair TMZ....all you did was post Nicki's rage. Nobody rages for no reason. What did the Diva say to her to make her so upset??????
