Mariah Carey on Nicki Minaj 'Idol' Drama: "I Hope It Helps The Show"

Two divas are better than one! Mariah Carey set the record straight on her feud with fellow American Idol judge Nicki Minaj during her Nightline interview with Barbara Walters last night.

The 42-year-old singer previously spoke to the veteran journalist exclusively about the drama and revealed that Nicki, 29, threatened her with a gun off-camera and said, "If I had a gun, I'd shoot a b****." The comment eventually led the rapper to vent about the incident on her three-part reality television series for E! Nicki Minaj: My Truth.

Now the ball is back on Mimi's court. She opened up to Walters again about the tension between the co-judges and said, "For all the drama, I hope it helps the show," she said. "I think it's a classic, classy show and it didn't need this."

We totally agree with her comment. Watch the video below and let us know what you think!
