Nicki Minaj: I Would Perform With Mariah Carey

Just because the claws are out, doesn’t mean they can’t hold hands on stage. Or stand next to each other and stab one another with hard side-eyes on stage at the very least.

Nicki Minaj says she’d perform with her co-judge and arch nemesis Mariah Carey on “American Idol” if the possibility were to arise. “I would do that,” Nicki tells E! News.

“I think people would be interested in seeing that.” Let’s just hope her confidence is clouding her judgment and that she'll strictly stick to rapping a verse because when it comes to singing the Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up diva is considerably out of her league here.

Maybe all this tension and anger between them will translate into an epic performance on stage because Nicki’s right—who doesn’t like to see two divas try to outdo each other in the same 250 foot radius? Either way, this is officially the Nicki and Mimi show now, where we’ll constantly dissect every little disagreement and isolated agreement the two may have on the judging panel, while occasionally calling a contestant “pitchy” here and there. Maybe sometimes we’ll even remember Keith Urban is sitting between them.

The two have worked together in the studio before when they collaborated on the song “Up Out My Face,” which back then in 2010, wasn’t a total warzone. Mariah carried the verses and melody and Nicki featured in with one of her schizo-character voice raps.
