Though Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj were just confirmed to be judges on American Idol's upcoming 12th season alongside Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson, the Internet is already abuzz with rumors of an on-set feud.
"There's been a feud in two days?" Carey wondered aloud during a break from "Idol" auditions when she was asked about the Sunday afternoon dust-up with the red-hot hip-hop star while taping "Idol" for the first time in New York.
"A feud takes a little longer," the "Glitter" star sniffed.
For her part, Minaj says she's just happy to be there, telling reporters, "It's wonderful, darling," when asked how she liked being on the show so far.
Added Jackson: "We're having fun, dude. We've been having a good time. There has been a lot of laughs."
"It's music," said Carey. "It's singing. It's laughter."
The new panel also comes at a critical moment for the once dominant talent show which is under siege from competitors like NBC's "The Voice" and "The X Factor" - created by former "Idol" star, Simon Cowell.
While "Idol" has never embraced hip-hop, Minaj has made several recent forays into the world of pop.
"We've got a hip-hop superstar, we've got a vocal legend [Carey]- not just a singer, a vocal legend, and we've got a country legend," Jackson said. "It's already a different kind of a show."
A source close to production tells PEOPLE the three new judges are slowly but surely settling into their new roles. On the first day of auditions in New York, one contestant drove Urban under the judges' table, while Minaj has provided the comic relief, keeping the panel laughing with her bubbly personality, says the source.
