I don't know if the producers wanted confrontations between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj or that the two would get along but sometimes be a little curt with each other like Simon to Paula. What they are getting is the former, and getting it viciously as Nicki Minaj cussed out Mariah Carey on camera at an audition. Wait until the show goes live, if Mariah sticks it out that long. The thing is Mariah doesn't need the money. She is doing it for more viewers and an easy way to promote records that will allow her to tour less and give less press interviews. Oh, and because she wants everyone to know she is always right. Everyone tells her she is always right.
Carey had been baiting Nicki all day yesterday and finally called Nicki a b**ch. This made Nicki lose it and it was all caught on tape.
