Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are saying farewell to American Idol.

Thought the drama between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj was over? Think again. The American Idol judges started taking jabs at each other again this week. During Wednesday night's show, Mimi made a backhanded comment towards Nicki while critiquing one of the contestants and said, "Again, back to the Billboard Hot 100, No. 1 song, which you just performed -- which is difficult to get; not everybody has that."

Sudden death round 2 delivered quite the soul last night on American Idol, when the guys battled it out for the top 10.
Cuban cutie Lazaro Arbos continued to break hearts with his story about growing up with a speech impediment and taking a job at an ice cream shop so he didn't have to do "smart people stuff like talking."
The crowd loved his rendition of Keith Urban's "Tonight I Wanna Cry," but ironically Urban himself wasn't a fan.

It was round two of sudden death on American idol last night and the ladies were up first again this week. We thought only one Latina remained (Tenna Torres) until a stunning performance of Jazmine Sullivan's "Bust Your Windows" by New Orleans native Breanna Steer drove judge Nicki Minaj to ask what her nationality was.
"I'm a lot of things," Steer said. "I'm Honduran, Black, Creole."
"You're giving me sexy on a stick," Minaj said to our newfound Latina.

American Idol introduced a new twist to narrow down their semi-finalists in the form of sudden death rounds. The 40 contestants remaining will brave it out on stage in Las Vegas in the hopes of making the top 20 and meeting the judges back in Hollywood, but only five out of ten will get chosen in the course of the next four episodes.

While Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey bumped heads about pigeonholing a country singer on Wednesday night’s episode, which caused the hip-hop star to stormed off set, American Idol fans got a tamed dose of the judges on last night’s show.

Last night’s episode of American Idol was filled with OMG moments – or should we say OMI thanks to Nicki Minaj’s renaming of one of her favorite contestants Naomi Morris. The Idol crew hit up Charlotte and was welcomed with countless of country singing hopefuls.

The second episode of American Idol brought even more beef between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, causing Keith Urban to actually bail out at one point during their first day in Chicago. Supposedly, he had a concert, but by the look of his face as he painfully endured Minaj and Carey’s constant bickering, we have our suspicions.
“I feel like a scratching post,” Urban said as he sat between the dueling divas.
