Kree Harrison Sings ‘She Talks to Angels’ on ‘American Idol,’ Sparks Drama Between Mariah Carey + Nicki Minaj

Kree Harrison graced the stage of ‘American Idol’ tonight (April 17) with a heartfelt rendition of the Black Crowes’ ‘She Talks to Angels.’ She was a crowd favorite, as always, but her performance sparked some drama between judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. But we weren’t surprised — it was only a matter of time before the two panelists butted heads again.

Although Carey enjoyed Harrison’s delivery of the song, she didn’t think it was her best. She thought that perhaps she was trying too hard to perform and seemed to drift away from that genuine, authentic spirit we’ve all grown to love so much. “My favorite Kree moments are when you’re lost in song and you don’t care what anybody thinks,” she said. Keith Urban agreed with her.

Minaj was quick to disagree, calling it the best performance so far on tonight’s episode of ‘Idol.’ When Carey attempted to justify her opinion, Minaj talked over her and told her to “simmer down.” “This was the first performance of the night that I felt could be a current performance today in 2013 and 2014,” said Minaj. “I didn’t think there was anything really to critique. I thought it was perfection.”

Potential judges’ feud aside, what did you think of the performance? Does Harrison have what it takes to be the next ‘American Idol?’
