American Idol auditions in Charlotte went south for the judges as they had various arguments between them self’s. Music Stars Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj went at it over country music? All of this implies that this American Idol season is going to get really juicy really fast. If you wont watch it for the music you should definitely watch it for the drama. 

So let me get this straight: The big blow-up between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey was an argument about country music?

Oh, this American Idol season could get weird.

And if it does, the contestants from Charlotte will provide some of the color. Among the 37 contestants sent from the Queen City to Hollywood: A female frog gigger, a black alt-rock singer with a jones for Johnny Cash, a formerly homeless street singer and a girl named Summer whom the judges probably won't even remember seeing because they were too busy bickering amongst themselves.

Summer made the mistake of telling the judges that she "did the country thing," a choice of words that told Keith Urban she didn't take his style of music all that seriously.
