Wednesday night's "American Idol" show had Nicki Minaj in an outfit that might have been just a bit too sexy for prime time. She also rubbed some the wrong way with the way she treated Mariah Carey. It was a bright red sexy dress and a sharp tongue that got Minaj in the headlines today.

Just when you thought Nicki Minaj's waters were calm enough for Mariah Carey to jump back in for a cordial swim, Nicki rears her shark's teeth at Carey. Minaj attempted an English accent and told her fellow judge, Carey, to “Simmer down sir," according to RadarOnline on Thursday, April 18, 2013.

Mariah thought that Kree Harrison's "She Talks to Angels," by the Black Crows, was off the mark. This was when Nicki slammed her with the insult and she also had this to say:

“I disagree … that was the best performance of the night,” Nicki said, to which Mariah chimed in, “I wasn’t saying she was awkward … you don’t really disagree with me.”

“No, I do and I’ll explain,” Nicki said — at which point Mariah tried to say something again, and she told her, “Simmer down, sir.”

Carey looked embarrassed as she was shot right down by Minaj from getting a word in edgewise. It was later on in the program when Nicki gave her Mariah a compliment, that it looked like she might have regretted giving Mariah so much friction. It was after Candice Glover performed "When You Believe," which is a song Mariah and the late Whitney Houston collaborated on in the late 90s, that Nicki said:

“I have to say, I remember having nothing and locking myself in my room crying watching that video because I believed every word,” Nicki remembered. “That kind of collaboration has never happened since.”

Was this Minaj's way of making up to Carey? She did seem a bit humbled after her directions to "simmer down" to Mariah earlier in the show.

      This is a worldwide issue and more notice needs to be taken. Stop protecting abusers and start understanding that abusing a child's mother DOES mean they are not fit to parent.

      While I don't know all sides to this story, it is compelling enough for me to sign. I have been 'mistreated' by the court system so I know first-hand that a court system does not always take the child's best interests to heart. Take the time to do your due diligence in this case and interview appropriate witnesses and the minor and adult children.

      For 16 long years I stayed with my abusive husband he was and still is an alcoholic recovering or not he still has his old habits. i had threats by my now ex in laws that they were going to kill me. When the cops showed up the one officer walked away and told me too shut up. Him and my ex brother in law who had threatened me came out of MY bedroom laughing and patting each on the back. I had my exes probation officer tell me that if I left court the hearing for order of protection would go through anyway. Since i had no clue I left the court house confident that it would be taken care of. Friend called me to let me know it had been dropped since i wasn't present, Had councelors and court personell tell me it was all my fault. The ABUSE OF VICTIMS BY THE COURT SYSTEM IS AS BAD OR WORSE THAN THE ABUSE AT THE HANDS OF THE AUBSER. That is why i am signing this petition.

      I, too, am a survivor of domestic violence. After I finally escaped my dangerous first marriage, I spent almost 2 years in therapy and classes to make sure that I would break the cycle. My daughter could not grow up to think this was how her husband should act; my sons would not learn to treat women this way.

      Please protect these children from their abuser. By helping to break the cycle now, you would also be helping future generations escape this potentially deadly fate.
