Nicki Minaj claims to have put aside any hard feeling between her and her fellow American Idol judge Mariah Carey.

The pair are said to have fallen out during the early audition stages of the show in North Carolina last year and have had a number of public spats since.

However, Nicki says she and Mariah are now trying their best to get along and put their differences aside.

She told Page Six: “All of that has been talked about. We had our differences, but it is all done with now, and we just get in there and go and do our job.”

Meanwhile, Starships singer Nicki admits she is growing closer to the show’s contestants the longer contest runs.

She explained: “I’m getting closer to the contestants as the competition goes on.

“Seeing their parents makes you realise about how this is their dream and how we have to nurture them as much as we can.”

But Nicki also realises she has to be tough with the aspiring singers and not get too personally attached as she has to choose who to send home.

She recently told People: “I don’t want to hurt people’s feelings but I guess that’s what we’re required to do.

“I hated [sending people home]. I really did. Everybody was talented and different. There were some special people we had to get rid of.”
