Nicki Minaj reignited her feud with Mariah Carey on Wednesday’s “American Idol,” telling her fellow judge to “simmer down, sir” when the pair disagreed on contestant Kree Harrison’s performance.


While the “Starships” singer was trying to explain how her critique of Harrison differed from Carey’s, Carey cut her off, saying, “I disagree with your disagreement.”

Minaj shot back, “What? OK. Simmer down, sir.”
