So, I decided to watch my regular shows on DVR and sat down to watch American Idol last night just so I could see how this feud played out during auditions
. Here is what I wrote down on the back of a subscription card. When Mariah Carey is nice to someone, Nicki tries to be nicer. If Mariah cries, Nicki gives hugs. Keith Urban is way too nice to everyone and he is the antithesis of Tom Cruise. Randy looks like he is feeling left out, but sometimes I get the feeling that at this point he is just happy to be cashing a paycheck. I'm pretty sure Mariah has Mean Girls memorized and if you want to get on her good side that might be a way for future contestants to make their impression. You can say Mariah is your hero and really that is a very good idea, just DON'T say that you were watching her from when you were 3. Make her feel good, but not old. Mariah can be rude while being extremely friendly about it and I think Nicki is scared of her and is glad Mariah can't whisper in her ear.
