The 'Pound The Alarm' rapper is seen walking off the show in this week's episode of the series.
Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey's blazing row finally aired on American Idol last night (23rd January) as the 'Va Va Voom' rapper is seen walking off the show's panel declaring that she is "done".
The two singers have had a widely reported feud during their time on the series together, and are seen arguing over 20 year-old contestant Summer Cunningham in the latest episode of the series.
After judges Mariah, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson seemingly criticised the contestant for saying she "did the country thing", Nicki chimed in and suggested they were trying to "pick" the young singer apart.
"For a minute I thought it was a country music debate, I mean, like why are we picking her apart?" Nicki says, when asked for her opinion. "You guys make comments about everybody in popular music all day non-stop. Not you Keith, [but] Randy and Mariah.
"Really? Is that what I do?" Mariah is heard replying. "I'm sorry, that's what I do Nicki, I sing and so when I'm making comments I'm trying to help her as opposed to just talking about her outfit."
After the contestant in question gets through to the next round the judges then reiterate to Nicki that they were simply trying to pass on their experience, causing Nicki to angrily storm off the panel.
"Oh, you're right. I'm sorry, I can't help her," Nicki says. "Maybe I should just get off the f*****g panel. Let me get off the panel. Finish the show. I'm done."
While Nicki storms away from the table Mariah is then heard saying the 'Pound The Alarm' rapper had stolen "my move".
"I was going to do that next time she ragged on me," Mariah jokes, to which Nicki is heard shouting: "Shut the f**k up!"
The exchange was the same audition seen in handheld footage back in September last year, which eventually led to a real fallout between the two artists.

Nicki has since insisted she and Mariah have made peace with each other since their spat and that things are much better between them.
Nicki Minaj is set to launch her own fashion collection in partnership with US chain Kmart later this year with a line of apparel and accessories.
