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.

I hope the vampires from the HBO TV show "True Blood" down in Baton Rouge, Louisiana don't bite Nicki or Mariah and turne them into vamps too. There might be blood all over the American Idol set. It might be "must see TV" like they say though. :)

No one was "embarrassed, " since there was no actual fight. As for Minaj, she has the strange arrogance about her, as if she somehow believes she is some immense talent. Besides being obviously annoying. she's also highly delusional.

I still think this whole "feud" between Mariah and the ghetto clown has been orchestrated by the slimy little weasel, Ryan Seacrest! Poor Keith Urban!

Simply they were probably told to cool it or they would find someone else, even Mariah needs to pay the bills now and then.....

This is a surprise because ... ? If it comes to a "who" between the two of them I begrudingly say Mariah wins because as a persona she pretty much sucks but as a talent she got it going on. MInaj? not so much. Kill the bitch.

yjey are both diva's in their own music, and everyone thinks mariah is so sweet, wait until you be behind the sence and you will see and hear, she is a mean spirited devil so disrespectful to the people who are beneath her as she stated. i don't like neither one but if you have no respect for yourself, then how can these two b----h's respect anyone else. both should be fired, we are so quick to judge.

This is what the music business has turned to today. It is just sad. I guess I am old, but I remember when performers, such as Gladys Knight, Toni Braxton etc. did what they did with class and dignity. It is just sad to watch these two fools. They are fools, no question about it. And if this is how they feel they need to behave (staged or not) for a paycheck, well then so be it. But at the end of the day, they are nothing but tools stripped out of any dignity.

So what's next exchanging wigs and hair extensions to boost ratings? These guys are getting paid a boatload of money for doing nothing.

Dear God, I pray to you to please end that piece of

crap show American Idol, can't you see how it is

killing the music business. The music business

should be reserved for musicians, and not for

Hollywood ceo's..

Niki you just lost a fan. But you probably don't care because you like NeNe now....Rich Bitch. I am SOOOooooo disgusted, Mariah just be happy you had a mother who taught you how to be a respectful woman. Niki's gonna wish she didn't have that moment...for life...for life.
