Nicki Minaj curses out Mariah Carey during 'Idol' auditions
Get ready for some major drama on "American Idol" in the upcoming season. Host Ryan Seacrest told TODAY last month that "there are not too many dull moments between" new judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, and it looks like he was putting things a bit mildly.

According to the gossip site, when the two ladies disagreed over a contestant, Minaj unleashed a flood of expletives at Carey, at one point declaring, "I'm not f-----' putting up with her f-----' highness over there."
Fellow new judge Keith Urban, who was seated between the two women, can be seen throwing up his hands in exasperation in the video, while original panelist Randy Jackson kept asking for a "time out." (You can watch the curse-filled -- but bleeped -- tirade on TMZ.)
