NEW YORK (AP) — Feuding divas on “American Idol”? Ryan Seacrest says that’s just great.

The show’s host said Wednesday that things had gotten intense between new judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey during a tryout taping in Charlotte, N.C. the day before.

In the midst of a dispute over a contestant, Miss Minaj announced that she was no longer putting up with “her … highness,” in a reference to Miss Carey, with a few expletives added in.

Another new judge, Keith Urban, was in the unenviable position of sitting between the two women.

On his radio show, Mr. Seacrest said that “Idol” needs some passionate debate.
