Host Ryan Seacrest said Wednesday, Oct. 3, that things got 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, Minaj announced that she was no longer putting up with "her ... highness," a reference to Carey with a few expletives added in. Another new judge, Keith Urban, was in the unenviable position of sitting between them. (AP Photo/FOX, Michael Becker)
