Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj’s beef didn’t save American Idol like the producers planned, but the on camera shade these two are constantly throwing each other is still very entertaining. Whether or not the shadefest is enough to secure both spots for another season remains to be seen, but the recent rumors suggest the possibly isn’t too high. Jennifer Lopez is reportedly in talks to get her spot back on the show by sacrificing Mariah, while Nicki’s antics are being labeled as the “sole” cause of the show’s massive drop in ratings. Usher’s appearance on The Voice has helped the show become the lead in the singing competition genre, and Idol producers are wondering who needs to be replaced to make the show more competitive. In the mean time, Nicki and Mariah will continue to take shots at one another’s career to tie fans over until possible changes are made to the panel.

The other night was no different when Nicki and Mariah once again clashed on-screen. When Nicki pointed out that Mariah was agreeing with her during Mariah’s critique of one of the contestants, Mariah decided to point out the fact that Nicki hasn’t had a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 like she has:

Nicki: “You must agree with Nicki?”
Mariah: “So you must think that I agree with Nicki and Keith and Randy and the entire panel.”
Nicki: “Oh, A.K.A. you agree with Nicki … ? Okay honey boo boo. Okay.”
Mariah: “Again, back to the Billboard Hot 100 #1 song which you just performed … which is difficult to get … not everybody has that (waves hands towards Nicki) to their credit … to your credit you did a great job so keep on singing…”

Ouch. Check out the clip below:


      1. Yes she does, and she needs to so she can cope with that shade Mariah just threw her fave. LOL! I still love you Barb!

  1. Damn. I kind of felt bad for Nicki just then. She couldn’t do anything but smile uncomfortably after that.

  2. Mariah is not here for your games Nicki. Step your shading game up! You’re up against the master now.

  3. If she’s so much more successful than Nicki, why keep throwing jabs? She needs to sit down somewhere.

    1. Mariah has always been a class act and Nicki on the other hand leaves much to be desired. ..she caused the ratings to drop when they announced she would be a judge this year. I’ll be glad when the season is over so Nicki can take a real assesment off herself and get somewhere and sit down and shut up !!!
