Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey spar at Charlotte 'Idol' auditions



We can't really hear what they're saying — it sounds like a bunch of mice arguing over food — but Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey got in a bit of a tizzy over the American Idol cheese during auditions yesterday in Charlotte.

Talk to the finger!

There have been rumors the two don't like each other, but reports that they buried the hatchet for the good of the show seem to be premature. Or, maybe they just dug it back up. In the video of the Tuesday fracas, Carey and a pink-haired Minaj chastise each other while fellow judge Randy Jackson tries to call time out and Keith Urban just looks like he wants to go home. TMZ is reporting that the video includes the following gems:

Minaj — "I told them I'm not fuckin' putting up with her fucking highness over there."

Carey — "Oh why, whyyy do I have a 3-year old sitting around me?"

Minaj — "I'm not gonna sit here every fucking minute to have you come down and harass me every minute every day."

Idol auditions at Charlotte Motor Speedway continue today. Good luck — to the judges, not the contestants.
