Nicki Minaj And Mariah Carey Makes American Idol Debut [VIDEO]

After months of waiting fans get to see Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey in the judges panel on American Idol when the talent show premiered on Wednesday (Jan 16).

Last year both Minaj and Carey’s diva antics caused a nasty fight on camera. In the viral video that surfaced on YouTube, Nicki Minaj was seen hurling expletives at Mariah Carey who she accused of taking shots at her during a audition in New York.

Yesterday’s episode was a striking difference from that grueling auditions. Nicki Minaj gave an heart warming speech about contestant James Bae, who she called the “Asian Justin Bieber.”

The show airs on Fox at 8/7c tonight.
