It may be time to start a new prayer circle for Keith Urban. It'll be a miracle if he makes it through American Idol alive, sitting at that table between feuding Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.
TMZ has video of the latest tiff, giving new proof to rumors that the two new lady judges just aren't besties. The group was at Idol auditions in Charlotte, N.C. on Tuesday and the video shows Nicki shouting a bunch of curses, seeming to be directed toward Mariah, if not directly at her because they don't talk to each other, they talk to the producers or the air around them as Keith sits there, probably wondering how he ended up with this life. It's hard to hear her words exactly, but Nicki seems to shout stuff like "I told them I'm not f**king putting up with her f**king highness over there."
TMZ's sources told them Nicki also threatened to knock out Mariah, although that wasn't caught on tape. It's beautiful. Idol must've known they'd get drama with these two, and that's probably why they were picked. But this may be too much for even them ... unless not, since someone on the Idol staff must've taped this then leaked it to TMZ. Do you think Nicki and Mariah are playing it up for attention/show promotion?
Either way, isn't it sad that so much judge drama has taken over reality TV competition shows? Especilly since, on this show, it's just the women going after each other like a classic cliché "cat fight." It's going to be nice to meet the contestants and start talking about them. Stay strong, Keith and Randy Jackson!
