When divas collide as MARIAH CAREY & NICKI MINAJ’s war of the words goes full-on Hiroshima!

Both “American Idol” judges were in Charlotte, North Carolina for a taping when things got of control.

The feud began when the two didn't agree on a contestant performance during auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Nicki reportedly threatened to "knock out" Mariah. What followed was Nicki's expletive-filled rant caught on tape RadarOnline.com reported.

"You think I’m playing. Think it’s a joke! Think this is a f**king joke!" Nicki screamed over judge Keith Urban who was sitting between the two "ladies".

"Say one more disrespectful thing to me, say one more disrespectful thing to me.”

Randy Jackson tried to cool the girls off continually saying, "Whoah, whoah, hold up, hold up, hold up, settle down."

"Don’t lose your head! Don't lose your head… Don't tell me I'm a gangster. Yeah, don’t tell me I’m inadequate. Maybe you’re inadequate, you’re insecure running down your resume every five minutes," Nicki continues at Mariah.

"Every time you patronize me I'm-ma take it back and if you’ve got a f**king problem, handle it."

Taking a jab at Mariah's diva reputation, Nicki says she's not going to put with her 'highness' anymore.

"I told them I’m not f**king putting up with your f**king highness over there," she screams. "Figure it the f**k out. Figure it out."

Mariah is finally heard giving it back to Nicki taunting, "Oh why, whyyyyyyyy, do I have a three-year-old sitting around me?"

"I’m not sitting here for 20 minutes and have her run down her resume every five minutes, every day,” Nicki complains.

"I can't see my kids because you decided to act like a little crazy b*tch and going all around the stage,” Mariah snaps back.

"Good! Go! Go see them now, go. You’re boring as f**k,” Nicki says to Mariah.

According to multiple sources, the fight between the two singers was so bad that producers were forced to cut the auditions short and had to stop filming.

Idol host and media magnate Ryan Seacrest Tweeted on Tuesday night, "Going to bed in Charlotte after an anything but dull day at #idol auditions."

Should be good for ratings, eh Ryan?
