It’s all American Idol fans (and everyone else) has heard about lately: Nicki Minaj versus Mariah Carey … Was it real? Was it staged?

Well, who better to ask than a previous AI judge? TMZ caught up with Steven Tyler to see what he thought of the argument.

When asked if the feuding was BS, Steven said, “Of course, are you kidding?” And then went on to say that he is never going back to the show.

So Steven joins Cee Lo in his disbelief. As someone who knows the behind-the-scene goings on of the show, do you think that Steven is right? Was the fight set up by the producers? They say no, but what do you believe?
