“American Idol” took a dramatic turn on Wednesday’s show, with the judges clashing with mentor Jimmy Iovine after performances from Amber Holcomb and Candice Glover.

The panel praised Holcomb for infusing her performance of “MacArthur Park” with personality and showing growth, and went on to compliment Glover for her vocal prowess on “Emotion,” despite wrestling with a bad cold.

Iovine, however, objected to the judges overlooking the fact that Holcomb’s song choice was weak, earning the ire of Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Nicki Minaj.

The panel interrupted their critique of Glover to angrily defend their position, but things got even more heated when Ryan Seacrest brought Iovine out on stage.

As the Interscope chairman continued to diss the panel, a pissed off Minaj got out of her seat and headed for the stage.

Jackson then followed suit.
