Nicki Minaj storms off American Idol after another heated fight with Mariah Carey and it was all caught on camera. The feud between these two dueling divas escalated last night and ended with Minaj wondering if she should even be on show.
Fans of AI got an extra special treat last night, a front row seat to the feud between Nicki and Mariah. We have been hearing the rumors that these two have been at each others throats since day one but this is the first fans have really got to see it. Minaj was none too happy and Carey wasn’t her only target fellow judges Keith Urban and Randy Jackson were also on her list.
The drama went down at the auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina shortly after Idol hopeful Summer Cunningham made her debut. The 20-year old sang ‘Lean on Me’ but it wasn’t her rendition of the song that sparked the feud, it was her words that annoyed Urban. Summer said that she had “done the country thing” during her attempt at a musical career. Keith didn’t take too kindly to that remark and declared “I always get thrown when people say they have ‘done the country thing’ … it’s like saying you ‘did the brain surgeon thing’ — either you are a brain surgeon or you’re not.” Both Randy and Mariah joined in his assessment of the girl and her comment.
It took only a hot second for Nicki to rush to the girls defense, which then led to a heated argument between her, Randy and Mariah. Things escalated as Minaj threw her chair behind her and stormed off the set, while saying a profanity filled ranted that included her sharing that maybe she shouldn’t be on the panel. She of course didn’t say it as nicely as I just did.
Yes it was a dramatic evening on the Fox show American Idol and the season has only just begun. If you missed the show you can see Nicki Minaji storming off in the below video. Watch it and let me know what you think.
