NEW YORK — Mariah Carey says there’s no feud between her and fellow new “American Idol” judge Nicki Minaj at the moment.
Judges Carey, Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson and host Ryan Seacrest attended a press conference in New York on Monday after auditioning singers for the Fox music reality TV series.
Fox announced Sunday that Minaj and Urban would join Carey and Jackson as judges on “Idol” following Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler’s exits in July.
Carey tried to quell rumors about her quarreling with Minaj by saying they’ve only been together two days and “a feud takes a little longer to happen.”
All the judges burst into laughter.
Minaj says the new “Idol” judges are “getting along wonderfully.”
The show’s 12th season airs in January.
