4 February 2013

As the competition will start to heat up, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest believes the same could happen between the American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj when the show begins the live shows.

With the auditions still underway, viewers have seen Mariah and Nicki coming to (verbal) blows with each other when they have disagreed on a hopeful auditioning and according to Ryan the disagreements could still continue.

Appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ryan admitted that there  has been "tension" between the two divas. He added:

"I have no idea what it's going to be like when we go live, which is sort of the exciting part of that."

However, the host who has seen a selection of American Idol judges come and go, insisted that Nicki and Mariah have made the effort to get on with each other.

He said: "I think that they're both trying to make for a great show and find great talent on the show.

"So there will be moments that I'm sure we cannot predict."

Judges aside, Ryan was keen to express his happiness over the quality of the talent. Talking to Ellen, Ryan said: "There's some great talent. The girls are really good this year so the guys have got to step up."
