    TMZ proves the 'Idol' beef between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey is 100% authentic. You're watching your music news channel, ClevverMusic. 'American Idol' producer Nigel Lythgoe was taking a stroll down Sunset Blvd. not far from our office actually, where TMZ cameras found him and Nigel happily answered their questions about 'American Idol'. Earlier this month Nicki was caught on tape screaming at Mariah during auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina.

    Of course critics speculated whether or not the fight was real, or just for ratings. Mariah has since also insisted that Nicki threatened to "shoot" her during the dispute, which Nicki denied. Now, Nigel is weighing in and he says the fight was 100% real not just for ratings because "the timing is wrong".

    We like Nigel's honesty and we also like that he seemed happy to talk about the drama to the cameras! And now we know his dirty secret: the ratings PR will come a month before the show is set to air, so we'll be looking out for that. Will you be tuning in to 'Idol' when Season 12 airs sometime in January 2013? We sure will. I'm Misty Kingma, thanks for watching ClevverMusic.
