American Idol producers along with host Ryan Seacrest came to Charlotte last June, when thousands of hopefuls auditioned at Time Warner Cable Arena for a chance to compete during the 2013 season of the reality singing competition television show. As far as I know, it was business as usual. But when American Idol returned in October for the second round of Charlotte auditions, during which the celebrity judges panel of Randy Jackson, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, and Nicki Minaj set up shop at Charlotte Motor Speedway, all hell broke loose. And that isn't just a figure of speech in this case.

TMZ obtained cell phone video footage (about a minute long) back then of Nicki and Mariah engaging in a brutal shouting match, led by Nicki's repeated profanity. The bickering between the two divas that TV audiences saw last week during the season premiere, pales in comparison to what took place during the Charlotte auditions. After months of speculation and media and tabloid buildup of the Nicki-Mariah feud, the question now is, how much will American Idol reveal when the Charlotte auditions air tonight at 8 p.m. on FOX? Guess you'll have to tune in to see.

You might also want to check out Nicki and Mariah's tweets to see if they have any comments during and after tonight's episode.
