The highly anticipated season premiere of “American Idol” aired last night and fans were finally able to see the Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey drama that has been brewing ever since Nicki signed on to be a judge. The premiere was far from boring, with both Nicki and Mariah’s antics showing that maybe their feud isn’t fake.

Lmao what an intro! #americanidol.” “Real World” cast member, @RobbMTV wrote, “Nicki Minaj is judging #AmericanIdol .A singing competition .. But isn’t she a rapper?” Talk show provocateur Wendy Williams also had her two cents: @WendyWilliams wrote, “#AmericanIdol premiered last night & u know I have an opinion.”
