CHARLOTTE, NC - Feuding divas on "American Idol"? Ryan Seacrest says that's just great.
The show's host said Wednesday that things got intense between new judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey during a tryout taping in Charlotte, N.C. the day before.
In the midst of a dispute over a contestant, Minaj announced that she was no longer putting up with "her ******* Highness," in a reference to Carey.
Another new judge, Keith Urban, was in the unenviable position of sitting between the two of them.
On his radio show, Seacrest said that "Idol" needs some passionate debate.
