Steven Tyler and Cee Lo think 'American Idol' Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj feud is fakeIn the on-going saga that is the new “American Idol” judges panel — seriously, Keith Urban must think he’s fallen down the rabbit hole — former “Idol” judge Steven Tyler and current “Voice” judge Cee Lo have weighed in.

As he was leaving a Los Angeles-area restaurant Friday night (Oct. 5), TMZ asked Tyler if he thinks the whole Mariah/Nicki feud is B.S. and he says, “‘Course, are you kidding?” He also adds that he “ain’t never goin’ back” to “Idol.”

Cee Lo echoed those sentiments to TMZ when he was asked about the feud and said, “This is Hollywood, California. Hardly anything’s legit.”

What do you think, “Idol” fans? Is it a ratings ploy? It sure is getting the new judges panel a ton of publicity, months before the show even airs.
