Mariah Carey Bashes American Idol – Mariah Carey got candid on Australia’s “Kyle and Jackie O” show on Wednesday, describing her time on “American Idol” as “the worst experience of my life.”
When questioned if she would return for the upcoming season 15 “American Idol” series finale on the radio show, Carey declined: “Hell no! “I’m not going to get into what it was, but let’s just say I don’t think they had any intentions for us to have a good experience doing that show.
“It should have been about the contestants instead of about some nonexistent feud that turned into even more ridiculousness,” referring to the bickering between her and Nicki Minaj on the show, and said that pitting them against each other was “not cool.”
American Idol will air one last time next season with the current judges panel: Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr.
