Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj: 'American Idol' TCA Panel!

The two new American Idol judges were joined on stage by fellow newcomer Keith Urban, as well as Randy Jackson, Ryan Seacrest, and producer Nigel Lythgoe.

Mariah recently spoke with Barbara Walters about the fight she had with Nicki.

“Anytime anybody’s reeling threats at somebody, you know, that’s just — it’s not appropriate,” Mariah said. “I’ve got two babies; I’m not going to take any chances. Yeah, I did hire more security. I just felt it was the appropriate thing to do.”

Nicki Minaj & Mariah Carey Cover 'The Hollywood Reporter'

American Idol judges Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson take the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the judges, who shared the cover with host Ryan Seacrest, had to tell the mag:

Mariah, on deciding to do the reality show:
“I was on the fence about the whole thing. I got approached by all the shows. [Husband Nick Cannon] said I should do it because it’s the top, it’s the cream of the crop. And I felt like, ‘Do the show that’s produced massive stars who have had major careers.’”

Nicki, on the stigma of being on the show: “[There's] a judgmental culture in hip-hop…sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it’s almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I’m still surprised that I decided to do it.”

Keith, on contestant’s desires to win: “It shouldn’t be about fame or money. It should be your calling. This is what you do. You don’t have a choice.”
