In the midst of a dispute over a contestant, Minaj announced that she was no longer putting up with “her … Highness,” in a reference to Carey with a few expletives added in. Another new judge, Keith Urban, was in the unenviable position of sitting between the two of them.

On his radio show, Seacrest said that “Idol” needs some passionate debate.
