Nigel Lythgoe Sends Photo Evidence That All is Well at American Idol

The American Idol judges round auditions took place in Baton Rouge, Louisiana late last week. There was no press conference with the panel–presumably to avoid questions about the Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey Feud which has played out very publicly on the internets.

Late Friday night, FOX sent out a statement from the producers claiming that most of what we’ve read in the press about the feud is wrong, and that the Baton Rouge round went off without a hitch!

Further spin was provided by Nigel Lythgoe last night, as he posted a couple of photos of Nicki and Mariah as they posed looking OH SO HAPPYYYY with hopefuls. Thanks Nigel, for photographic proof that no one is dead yet.

I love the fact our judges actually get close to the contestants. @dizzyfeet

Brilliant singers in Baton Rouge. The judges are loving them. @dizzyfeet
