Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey had a knock-down, drag-out fight during recent American Idol auditions in Charlotte, N.C.

Minaj hurled expletives at Carey, while the latter diva said very little. "I told them I'm not fuckin' putting up with her fucking highness over there," Minaj said of Carey. "Figure it the fuck out. Figure it out."

Most expected drama from the two AI judges, but the video that surfaced, courtesy of TMZ, shocked many. Watch it below.
