American Idol issued a statement today addressing the Mariah Carey – Nicki Minaj feud which erupted this week in Charlotte, NC.
They probably realized that they played their hand a bit too strong by leaking the video of Nicki cussing Mariah to TMZ. Mariah talking to Barbara Walters, and Minaj going nuts on a Twitter were most likely unexpected, and they needed to do something about it.
In the bigger scheme of things though: Mission Accomplished. The plot is already written for American Idol Season 12 and they haven’t even finished taping the auditions.
“This is one of the best, most passionate, dynamic and invested judging panels we’ve ever had. We love and support all of the judges and the fantastic work they are doing, and we can’t imagine a better group to find the next American Idol. Despite all the accusations and media speculation — much of which is inaccurate — production is going extremely well today and the judges are focused on finding the best talent here in Baton Rouge.”
