Here’s a rule of thumb about divas: never give one more airtime than the other.

That said, we were pleasantly surprised to see a new American Idol promo starring Nicki Minaj getting her sass on with some potential Season 12 contestants. Mariah Carey can’t be happy about this!

The 30-second clip is a montage of the rapper’s quippiest moments while auditioning singers all over the country.

Nicki is described as “wild,” “original,” and “honest” in the promo, with the phrase “Brace Yourself” at the very end.

While the clip gets us super pumped for Idol’s, we hope for Nicki’s sake that Mariah’s own promo is already in the can!
