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.
