Sometimes when it comes to voting, things get downright catty. Just ask new American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, both new additions to the singing competition and whose on-set, uh, "squabbling" will surely generate ratings galore.

As we the hours dwindle down to Mitt Romney and Barack Obama's election tonight, it's safe to assume that we got through this entire election without any diva fits. But forget about the POTUS hopefuls for a second, it's time to really pit Ms. Minaj and Ms. Carey against one another.

Because just like on Idol, only one over-the-top diva can win. So hold on to your horses, Keith Urban (Get it? 'Cause he's a cowboy), and watch your back, Randy Jackson, because the claws are coming out and the wigs might start flying.

On one hand, there's Nicki Minaj with her candy-colored hairdos, outrageous outfits showing off her even more outrageous curves and legions of loyal Barbz. Then there's Mariah Carey, Queen of the Lambs, with her infamous falsetto and dem babies. The choice is yours.
