Well, let’s see. The season 12 premiere of “American Idol” last night was fun, wasn’t it? I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to take a whole season of Diva Fights between new judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, but it could be entertaining.
Let’s take stock of how things progressed for the dueling divas (and oh yeah, there were a couple guys there named Keith Urban and Randy Jackson there, too):
The divas argued over just about everything, including Carey taking issue with Minaj’s huge, plumed majorette hat. “We can have accessories? I didn’t know that was allowed,” Carey sniffed at the judges table, grousing about the fact that she couldn’t bring her dog to work.
Carey bragged about her holiday classic, “All I Want for Christmas.” Minaj responded by calling her a “bitch” under her breath.
Carey then warned Minaj that anything that “starts with a ‘B’ and ends with an ‘itch’ – I rebuke it!”
The women argued over the Tina Fey/Lindsay Lohan flick “Mean Girls,” with Carey challenging Minaj to reference the film correctly. Did Minaj respond? I don’t think she did. I’m not sure she knows what the film is about.
During one particularly bad audition, Minaj noted that the singer had a range like Mariah Carey’s. I guess that’s … a backhanded compliment?
