Mariah Carey BURNS Nicki Minaj On Idol For Lack Of #1 Songs! Plus: A Recap Of The Night!

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsMariah CareyAmerican IdolNicki Minaj

Mariah Carey might look all nice and sweet, but she can get down and durty when provoked!

And that shizz is just what happened last night on American Idol.

Oooh, we’re telling you it was GOOD!

The ladiez got into it while the contestants were performing songs currently on the radio.

In major music feuding style, the Billboard Hot 100 list came up, and THAT’S when Mariah threw some serious shade Nicki Minaj’s way!


Seriously, disses were flying so hard we’re surprised Nicki’s wig didn’t fall off!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

But don’t forget what the night was really about: the performances!

Yes, the final four ladiez did perform in between the burns!

After having a rough last week, Candice Glover came back strong and received TWO standing ovations from the judges. But she might be the only contestant feeling safe this week as the others had up and down nights.

All the contestants enjoyed the mentorship of Harry Connick Jr. - who also popped into Keith Urban’s judge’s seat for a minute!

But his assistance wasn’t enough to help Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb and Angie Miller as the judges had problems with their performances coming up either lackluster, bland or not feeling like them.

With all the time we just spent watching and rewatching Mariah burn Nicki, we almost forgot we’re facing an elimination tonight!

So who do YOU think should go home??

    I absolutely loved how Mariah dissed Nicki it is about time. Way to go Mariah and shut this B- up!

    Refuse to watch this show now, it's like a bad jam night! Go Mariah! Why is this Nicki Minaj famous?! I don't get it, she's terrible (from what I've heard of it) and dresses like a freakazoid! She's also very annoying! Her 15 minutes is up isn't it?? God I hope so! Soon please!

  4. Joe says – reply to this


    To Nicki's credit she has only released 2 albums (not counting her Re Up rerelease) that have both been #1 and Jay Z hasn't even had a #1 billboard single and he's the GOAT.

  5. chris says – reply to this


    Yay Mariah glad you put her in her place. Done with this show if Nikki comes back next season. She is rude,obnoxious, annoying & untalented & dresses like a clown

  6. Barbra Streisand says – reply to this


    Re: Joe – Actually Joe Jay Z does have a number one, coincidentally it's from a song he did with Mariah LOL

  7. lex says – reply to this


    nicki literally has NO business being on a show that judges singing or talent.

    HAHAHAHA Mariah told ol Minaj wassss up!!!! She got served. that was aw-some!!!

    Re: Tim B – and you talk for the world shot da f-ckup.

  11. Allison says – reply to this


    I love how Nicki is calling Mariah insecure after this. Mariah finally stood up for herself. Nicki, I think you're charismatic and I thought you were a great judge. I lost some respect when you started pandering to Nigel Lythgoe, and then divas week happened, and you were wonderful. Last week, too. But now you're back to playing his game. Yuck. You know Amber is boring as shit just like the rest of us. So do what you WERE doing best: be honest. Angie's vocals are harsh, Amber's are good (but not great), and Candice and Kree are spectacular — even on their shittiest week they were still the best. So they're not skinny…so what. They'll either cut a deal with Weight Watchers or people won't care (see Adele, Kelly Clarkson) because they're so damn good.

    Also, the only reason the ratings are in the dumps are because of Nigel. I actually think Nicki, Mariah, and Keith are great judges. They're all too good for this show, but I'm so glad they found Candice. J.Lo and Steven Tyler obviously couldn't hear talent.

    Re: k – Another mindless illiterate nicki minaj fan who can't spell lol

  13. k says – reply to this


    Well even though Nicki never had a 1# single she have top 20,10 and 5 singles….why is mariah keep bringing up achievements for no reason..and the thing is ofter all them achievements it,s still didn't make her a good judge…and Nicki is good at that she is so connected..and mariah is more focus on blowing her own horn and saying what the audience wants to here than what the contestants want to hear…i am so glad Nicki isn't on there prazing her and getting sh!t on like the rest..she do respect her but she isn't praizing her mariah is no god she is too full off her d-mn self.

  14. sevgi says – reply to this


    yes yes yes Mariah, this is why I love her!! she's the best….. BURRNNNNNNN

  15. So Sad says – reply to this


    Nicki Minaj may not have #1s but she still has the same number of hits as Mariah which is 44. Nicki Minaj debuted in 2010..Mariah…two decades ago..

  16. Cosmosmom2010 says – reply to this


    Mariah rocks!! Nicki SUCKS!! She jealous of Mariah !!

  17. 17

    Can we please send Nicki's triffin' a$# home?? She is so uncouth! Ijs

  18. names says – reply to this


    Mariah is a good singer yes but does that justify why she acts all high and mighty ?
    during this whole season i haven't seen her make a decent critique to any of the contestant while nicki understands those young artists and knows where they missed up
    nicki minaj has been in the industry for 3 YEARS and she has done way more than anyone else during that time and never forget having all that success from a rapper says alot!!

  19. 19

    OMG — Mirah ain't nothing but a primadonna, Daahhling — SOOO OVER HER!
    Niki gives great critiques and is spot on! She's one SMART lady (although I know nothing of her music and think her sense of style, if you can call it that, needs a serious overhaul!)
    Pro-Mirah comments could only come from those who have not watched this season. Time to put her out to pasture, she's definitely beyond her prime!

  20. tiffanyfox79 says – reply to this


    To all the Nicki fans dissing Mariah, come back 30 years from now and lets just see Nicki's "Achievements", verus Mariah's. Enough said…..

  21. 21

    Re: tiffanyfox79 – I'm not sure what you're counting as Mirah's achievements?! Overrated from day 1. Period. Dot. The. End. Lots of great big voices in the world…w/the right management and press (it helps when you're married to the head of the studio, don't you think?) Don't know what she has EVER done to "give back," can't even give a worthwhile critique so doubt seriously she possesses the metacognition necessary to have shaped herself into the megastar that others made her into!

  22. 22

    This is why nobody watches AI any more.

  23. Uhm says – reply to this


    oh… wait, is she? (Thinks) Oops, she is. Sorry :'(

    *embarassed, gets out of the room*

  24. 24

    Mariah Carey may have actual talent but she has zero business jusging anything. She lives in her own little world or rainbows, butterflies and pixie dust. She is so far gone she couldnt relate to anyone if she tried. While I dont particularly love Nikki Minaj either she seems to have her finger on the pulse of music today. It doesnt matter how many number ones youve had dahling, your a has been.

  25. OK says – reply to this


    #1s doesnt count dahling? Yeah, the legendary status and the millions she's worth because of those count dahling. Anyone can call Mariah a has been, but Nicki can only dream where Mariah has been :)

  26. Why says – reply to this


    No other judge interrupts another judge while giving their critique. Niki is disrespectful and needs to learn some manners.

    And the show is bad because of the PRODUCERS making the show cheap with theme week shows, wrong song selections and cheap stage and production. The judges are not the reason the shows ratings are down and its wrong of them to blame it on any of the judges.

  28. PouritUp says – reply to this


    Re: Why – Mariah has interrupeted Nicki plenty of times. lets no go there.

  29. You're sad says – reply to this


    Re: So Sad – Please, everyone damn well knows that Nicki's singles only appear on the charts because of iTunes. Her chartings don't actually matter. When Mariah debuted, there was no iTunes, so people actually had to buy the singles when they were released. Also, just to let you know, when Mariah was in her third year, she had 7 number one singles and had sold 40 million albums worldwide. Nicki has had no number ones and has barely sold 4 million. So, get your facts straight before you come after the greatest singer of all time. My fave's a legend. Yours is trash.

  30. 30

    Ohh Mooriah. When was the last time you were near the top of the charts? And how many of those #1s did you buy? ya that's right.

  31. emma says – reply to this


    Re: So Sad – 90% of those are other artist songs which Nicki ft, don't act like its Nicki is on the same level.

  32. emma says – reply to this


    Re: CHIRPIN – learn Mariah's legacy before spewing your shite. 7 octave vocal range is'nt just "a good singer like loads of others" 230 million record sales, 18 number 1 hits, 2 songs of the decade, 1st and 2nd longest running number 1 singles in history (to name just apart of her success) was not just down to her relationship now was it? take several seats.

  33. 33

    Re: emma – No such thing of a 7 Octave Range. Her Guinness Book of World Records was for 5 Octaves — and that included whistle tones and other "sounds" that were able to be amplified (as opposed to a true "singing" range as performed by Opera singers, for example — singers who do not use amplification). And as to # of records sold and length on the charts, Yes, those "achievements" are most definitely attributable to a high-profile marriage and a PR machine. I think it's YOUR facts that are in question (octave reference), the rest is just opinion and I'm as entitled to mine as you are yours. Obviously we can agree to disagree in that regard.

  34. Can We Just Get Along says – reply to this


    People this is all entertainment. The judges are human too. Its human nature to have disagreements. I love Nicki and Have always loved Mariah. I'm not taking sides but it was clear that Mariah started the whole feud. Just because you may not be a fan of Nicki, you can not take away from the fact that she is successful. No I'm not a young teenager. I am 27 years old who loves all types of music. Most of you think that Nicki shouldn't defend herself and you bash her with all types of name calling and other horrible things. Mariah and Nicki are in two completely different genres of music. So there is no comparison to me. Nicki was excited about being on the panel with a diva. She has said time and time again that she has been a fan since she was little girl. Plus how do you know that all of these comments aren't staged for rating boosts.

  35. idgaf says – reply to this


    Um last time I've checked Nicki had 2#1 songs on the billboard should I remind u simple minded people ” superbass ” starships” smfh plus she was the 1st female artist to have 7 singles on the billboard so um excuse me Nicki is very successful at what she does in she been in the have for 4 years … No y'all facts nuff said!!!

  36. musicluver says – reply to this


    All season Nikki has felt her opinion was always 100% and everyone else was wrong if they disagreed (rolling eyes,shaking her head, hollering etc). In the past when Mariah would try explain to her that she wasn't disagreeing with her she would snap off " settle down sir" last nite Nikki wanted to demand that Mariah agreed with her and Mariah let her know, "you are not in my league lil girl".. Nikki simply does not belong on this show and is turning viewers away in droves.. If you like her antics you are simply ghetto, hands down

  37. 37

    @You're sad : In her time it was easier actually to be "greater than the rest" with the right publicity, which she had. In music industry she was (until the 2000s) the artist from the 90s on who was spent the most money in publicity and radio spins. Mottola did an incredible job at promoting her, reason why her promotion declined a LOT after her divorce. She could pick up for a brief moment with her Emancipation but it wasnt like old times and then it declined again.
    Now at days with Itunes she should then be capable of selling easier according to your logic, and yet her triumphant song and the other one from disney didnt make that great, tho the last one I think it was mostly lack of good promotion (even with the movie).
    People just dont consume her music and most of the people who do are only her pool of fans that she has tried to keep fed since long time to keep cashing from them.

  38. Just sayin' says – reply to this


    Re: So Sad – The majority of those #1s that Nicki claims to have are from songs that she was featured on… not her own songs. Think about it: two albums and 44 #1s just does not add up. Mariah's #1s are all hers.

  39. DLOC says – reply to this


    TOO LONELY NICKI thinks she can erase the fact that last night
    i hope THE PRODUCERS finally see the vindictive, vulgar & ungrateful Nicki that is tweeting all kinds of HATE today towards her fellow judges, ex contestants , etc….
    how predictable she's obnoxious! she's gonna swallow the bait perez feeds her cuz 'she dont know no better' & gets MAD!! LOL GHETTO LADYBUG!!!!
    TOO LONELY NICKI , please grow up…..

  40. DLOC says – reply to this


    Re: Allison – I love your comment is spot on. Truthfully, ive enjoyed ALL the judges in different ways but your right - it is CANDICE GLOVER that this season is all about & FOR HER ARRIVAL this season will be remembered fondly!
    As far as who's the best judge overall it is important to note that at a crucial point in the competition only ONE JUDGE had CANDICE GLOVER in her top 3 and that was MARIAH CAREY. The rest is history… :) )))

  41. kat says – reply to this


    um COMPLETELY and TOTALLY not over her. nice try though. Re: Tim B

  42. Kat says – reply to this


    Couldn't agree more with you! It doesn't matter WHO you are or how many singles you have. everyone deserves respect. Re: Can We Just Get Along

  43. djlewinski says – reply to this


    Re: Sylvia Stein – you cant shunt nicki up hahahahahahahah

  44. I'm Happy says – reply to this


    You're Sad! I was about to say this too! Thanks for reminding people of that!

    "…when Mariah was in her third year, she had 7 number one singles and had sold 40 million albums worldwide. Nicki has had no number ones and has barely sold 4 million…"

    And sorry if Mariah didn't have more than 44 Hot 100 entries because her #1s back then were so busy occupying the top for MONTHS and it must be a management prerogative to stay focused on such top-rank achievements rather than dishing out ONE UNFORGETTABLE HIT AFTER ANOTHER.

    Oh so what are those 44 Nicki Minaj entries again? Super Bass 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, Starships 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, Pound The Alarm 1, 2, 3, 4?


    Did I mention that in about 95% of those 44 Mariah hits she's the MAIN SINGER and is not relegated to a FEATURED artist?

  45. LedZ says – reply to this


    Mariah can hit notes that no one else can. Nicki, she just has multiple personalities. Sounds like someone may need to get checked for early signs of schizophrenia.

  46. LedZ says – reply to this


    ANOTHER THING! Mariah Carey is mentioned in my Rock History textbook. It's a college course I took. That is what you call a DIVA. Props to her. Nicki Minaj can go cry with her untalented ass.

  47. Online Sunshine says – reply to this


    I think both Nicki and Mariah have talent. They are different artists, so comparing them is like comparing apples to oranges. I like both of their music. I grew up listening to Mariah, but I also enjoy Nicki's music as well.
    That being said, I can't stand listening to Mariah on American Idol. She is trying to be some diva who says, "dahhhhling" and such and it just sounds so stupid. She should just be herself, whoever that may be. And she should have the guts to give a real critique instead of giving sugar-coated praise to every contestant.
    I enjoy Nicki on American Idol. She has a big personality that is entertaining. Her critiques are hit and miss, but I think she has given some good advice.
    Keith is probably my favorite judge right now. Too bad we couldn't have a panel with Keith and Steven Tyler together.
    Nicki is right about Mariah, though. She should be more secure about herself at this stage of her life. Her problem is that she has never had any self confidence and is just trying to act like she's a diva.
    Please, American Idol, get rid of Mariah. It takes all my willpower not to fast forward when she is talking.

  48. Brent Musberger moment says – reply to this


    Dem bitches just got 4 redeeming qualities tween em

  49. 49

    Nicki is so annoying. Her wigs….her makeup…her voice…her "accents"…her demeanor….even how she sits. She plays with her hair all the time and constantly rolls her eyes. I watched this particular show live and Nicki instigated Mariah FIRST with, "oh so you agree with the panel now?" basically taunting Mariah misspeaking. I would of burned Nicki too. Please…who does she think she is? Her current single is with Lil Wayne as they are seen in the music video frolicking together on a bed. Ummmm awkward much? Not to mention Freaks with French Montana’s bum ass where her breasts are on full display. Aint nobody wanna see that! She’s a clown. Period.

    We have always loved Idol, but have lost interest and gone to the Voice. When we do watch Idol, we can't stand MM. Our solution, just mute the TV everytime she is about to speak.

  51. Truth says – reply to this


    Re: jim – Nikki Minaj is a disrespectful JOKE! Mariah paved the way for her ass, because it was MARIAH who solely meshed R&B & Pop, with Rap. Check the facts. Not only is Mariah one of the biggest selling recording artist of All Time, but she WROTE all of her #1's! Nikki is not a QUEEN of anything! Maybe a DRAG QUEEN, but never a QUEEN of Music! Mariah is the most achieved FEMALE recording artist of ALL TIME, and in the wise words of the talented BEYONCE, Nikki can #BOWDOWN! LOL, Nikki isn't a talent, she is a circus act gone wrong. You foolish people who believe she is talented probably have the same skill level she does! MINIMAL MINAJ MADNESS is the disease that is spreading. She is a good rapper, THAT's IT! In 5 years nobody will know her name, just her failure as an ARTIST! Have several seats Minaj supporters, twirl on that! THE QUEEN STILL LIVES…ALL HAIL THE CHAMPS OF MUSIC…MARIAH, WHITNEY, JANET, PATTI, ARETHA, DIANA, MADONNA, BEYONCE……MINAJ continue being a court jester! #POW

  52. 52

    And once again, Nicki is judging a singing competition because … ? *crickets*

  53. JenJen says – reply to this


    I haven't watched at all this season because of that loud, rude, offensive Nicki. I won't be back until she's gone. Does anyone even KNOW who the contestants are this year? I don't because it's all about rude this season. The contestants have been cheated by this lil punk who has the balz to claim Carey is insecure. Sit down and shut up skank.

  54. TC says – reply to this


    Re: Joe – Actually, Jay-Z's first #1 on the Hot 100 was as a featured artist on Mariah Carey's "Heartbreaker" in 1999 (featured artist credit being the reason icki has so many top 40 chart entries as she does) and he also went to number one as a feature on Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" and Rihanna's "Umbrella." To his lead artist credit, his first #1 was "Empire State of Mind" featuring Alicia Keys…so, I'm still wondering where icki's #1 is.

  55. TC says – reply to this


    Oh Nicholas Menagerie, when will you ever learn?

  56. wow says – reply to this



    Why did you comment? I mean really, you don't know her achievements? First of all she writes her own music, not like Minaj. Second of all she's actually pretty, not like Minaj (who happens to be the epitome of hideous). Third of all she has a great voice. Fourth, she has had 18 number 1s, sold 200 million albums, received countless awards - none of which Nicki has. Nicki is a drop dead piece of crap, a loser in every sense of the word who has to keep changing wigs to stay relevant.

    Also camp Mariah? Not heard of it? Mariah has invested millions into that - Google it you dimwit.

    Finally did I mention Nicki is hideous and has not talent?

    Mariah came out in 1989 and that girl wasn´t doing good for 3 years since she came out but look at Nicki she came out in 2010 and it has been 3 years since she came out and she is judge on TV show Nicki might not have #1 single on billboard but her albums Pink Friday and Pink Friday- Roman Reloaded did really well and now The Re-Up is selling good and she is being featured in other artists songs. So I think 5 years from now Nicki will be legend MARK MY WORDS :)
