Fans waiting for a big blow up between “American Idol” judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey got their wish on Wednesday's episode (January 23).
The much-anticipated spectacle occurred when Ms. Carey, along with co-judges Randy Jackson and Keith Urban, began questioning contestant Summer Cunningham on her interest in country music.
The "Starships" songstress appeared agitated during the conversation at times rolling her eyes and moving around in her seat, before she later accused the trio of picking Ms. Cunningham apart.
After the excited contestant was put through to the next round, the group continued to discuss her lean toward the country sound, angering Nicki even further.
Finally fed up, Ms. Minaj stormed off the set saying, ”Maybe I should just get off the f**king panel… I’m over it.”
As previously reported by GossipCenter, this was just the start of the feud, which later turned into a profanity-laced rant between the Nicki and Mariah.
