The much-hyped clash between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey took center stage on Wednesday’s “American Idol.”


Viewers finally got to see what sparked the drama, which Gossip Cop first reported when it took place in October.

The conflict began as Carey, Randy Jackson and Keith Urban questioned contestant Summer Cunningham’s interest in country music.

Minaj accused the trio of “picking her apart,” while the other judges insisted they just wanted to know more in order to help.

“You’re right. I can’t help her,” replied Minaj sarcastically before storming off the set, saying, “Maybe I should just get off the f**king panel… I’m over it.”

And that’s when things got really interesting.
