Sounds like Nicki Minaj is letting bygones be bygones...at least when it comes to her fued with fellow American Idol judge, Mariah Carey. The 2 exchanged some not-so-nice words to each other during auditions, but Nicki had nothing but good things to say at the American Music Awards. She said, "You know what, she's an icon. I respect her. I've always respected her. But you know, we're human and things happen.” Ryan Seacrest also said, "This will be the most unpredictable panel on our live shows we've ever had.” American Idol will premiere on Fox on January 16th.
