New American Idol 2013 judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey have been caught on video having a nasty catfight during auditions for the next season of the hit FOX show.

TMZ.com reports sources said Nicki Minaj actually threatened to “knock out” Mariah Carey in response to her insults. That part of the exchange between the two women was not captured on video.

Earlier reports had said Randy Jackson would not sit on the American Idol 2013 judges panel, but would be regulated to ‘mentor’ status instead, which allegedly did not sit well with Jackson. I’m guessing not, since it is likely such a role would come with significantly less cash attached, as well as being insulting to the only original American Idol judge left on the show.

American Idol Judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez Out

American Idol 2012 judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have confirmed they will not return for the American Idol 2013 season. Although it has long been suspected Jennifer Lopez would not return for another season as an American Idol judge, Steven Tyler’s depature comes as something of a surprise to the show’s fans.

“After some long…hard…thoughts…I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress ‘American Idol’ before she boils my rabbit,” Tyler said in a press statement earlier this week on his depature as an American Idol judge. “I strayed from my first love, AEROSMITH, and I’m back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band.”
