Ryan opened up on his radio show about the massive fight between the two divas that brought ‘American Idol’ auditions to a halt! Read on for all the details.

When the simmering rivalry between new American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj erupted during the show’s auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday, October 2, we were all shocked. Ryan Seacrest has opened up about the blowout while hosting his radio show, confirming that the fight was, in fact, “intense”!

During the Wednesday, October 3 edition of On Air with Ryan Seacrest, Ryan admitted that it was an intense fight. “Yesterday it got heated, as reported, between Nicki and Mariah,” he says. “Now, I was not standing in the room to see it happen live. I was outside the room. Our contestant was in there for part of it, I was outside the room with the contestant’s family. But, you know, it was intense, I’ll be honest with you.” He added, later, “It went far last night…It did get intense and we did wrap after it.”

When asked whether he thought the two divas would be able to work together for the duration of the season, Ryan remained optimistic. “Yes. We want that. We want them to be on this panel together,” he says. “That is what everybody’s decided, that this is a great team to go out and look for the next American Idol. And, by the way, they’re all very good at it.”

Do you think Nicki and Mariah will be able to make it work, HollywoodLifers?

REALLY PEOPLE! If Mariah didn’t have such a DIVA approach to everything she might not need to get pop-ed off to like that. Does everyone forget she has the LONGEST RIDER of any “Star” out there…..Granted Nicki should/could have handled it better. I’m sure Mariah said something SLICK for Nicki to go off the handle like that. Mariah and all these older stars need to realize that the younger group isn’t going to just bow down to them when they walk thru the door. Respect is given when Respect is earned. Mariah has “earned” her right to be a diva BUT she needs to simmer down. Watching her in past stuff..she thinks her you know what doesn’t stink and its quite annoying. You can sing, congrats, but you don’t save lives..you’re not a hero..get over yourself. However, I do agree with what pinkmani was saying…right off the bat mariah was bad mouthing Nicki so she is going to be automatically on the defense. Mariah does have more experience and more of a “righful” place to judge. But Nicki is what is current and has been around enough to be able to judge.
