The Moment: Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj debate "Mean Girls"
While these dueling divas quickly became tiresome, their initial willingness to bare their claws at one another was so thoroughly bizarre that, for a moment, it was the car wreck no one could stop watching (until they could). Though the dueling bad British accents moment was a favorite, the exchange in which Carey tried to belittle Minaj for her lack of "Mean Girls" knowledge ("That's a quote!") was memorably meta.
