Mariah Carey has admitted that she and her fellow American Idol judges often argue. While Carey’s huge bust-up with Nicki Minaj during the audition stages went viral, Mariah admitted that all four judges, including Keith Urban and Randy Jackson, have disagreements about the contestants.
Carey told E! News “We have to go against each other sometimes to say, ‘But wait, this person has something amazing! Maybe you’re not seeing it. It’s a little bit beyond your comprehension at this moment, but there’s something great about this person.'”
However, they don’t always disagree. Mariah added “We’re also unanimous about a lot of great people that are here! We’re excited about the people that are here right now. We all feel that they’re above average in talent and personality.”
Season 12 of American Idol is set to premiere on Wednesday, January 16th.Tweet
