Meow! Mariah and Nicki had a heated fight during an Oct. 2 audition round for season 12 of ‘American Idol.’ Mariah’s husband Nick told ‘Access Hollywood’ that he’s very disappointed in the producers. Are YOU?

Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj cursed each other out and stopped production on the set of American Idol on Oct. 2, worrying producers over the future of the judging panel.

“I mean we all have our thoughts. I feel like [the feud is] taking away what the quality of what ‘Idol’ is all about. I’m disappointed in Fox for making this seem as a competition. My wife is the strongest, classiest woman I know, so she signed up to help people accomplish their dreams – not the competition,” Mariah’s husband Nick Cannon told Access Hollywood on Oct. 3.

Mariah never wanted Nicki on the show in the first place. In fact, she was hoping to have Lenny Kravitz on board instead.

“I mean, I think there’s a lot of stuff that goes into it when it all plays out. I think the show is solely about a singing competition – to make it about something it’s not kind of chills the producers,” Nick adds.

“If you want to know who is a major diva it is Nicki Minaj,” a source close to American Idol told EXCLUSIVELY.  ”She is a major handful and a complete pain.”

“Everyone is a fan of Mariah and completely on her side, and if Nicki Minaj continues to make things be such an issue, they would be happy for her to be fired,” our source continues.

Furthermore, American Idol Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe spoke to exclusively about the on set drama. “The fact is, there will be such a very good American Idol that there will be differences of opinions,” he said. “And that is part of it.”

What do YOU think of the fued HollywoodLifers? Are the producers to blame?

Nicki sings and raps DUH!!! Mariah is great vocally but her attitude can be a bit unpleasant. Plus with today’s era you need to have some diversity on there and Nicki is a good choice for judge. Mariah is just tryin to stay relevant cause her light is slowly fading, while the new up and coming young-in are brightly shining. Rather you think its good music or not, its the way of the world. There was a time when funk and disco was the thing and people back then didn’t all think that was good music, but it made its mark.

Nikki Minaj is disgusting. Exactly how many contestants perform Rap, how about a whole lot of NONE. American Idol made a huge mistake hiring Minaj, she is a talentless hack. Mariah, diva or not, at least she has talent

Mariah’s Carey voice is golden, and I feel she has earned the right to be a diva. However, Nicki is truly a unique artist, but she needs to learn how to have self control. Remember, peacemaker shall be called the children of God ( not the children of satan).
