The “Infinity” singer told hosts of the “Kyle and Jackie O” radio show Thursday that starring as a judge on the show was “the worst experience” of her life. When asked if she’d return if the show called her for an encore on the finale, she responded with a spirited, “Hell no. Absolutely not.”

Carey, 45, judged “Idol” contestants alongside “Feeling Myself” singer Nicki Minaj, and the two were portrayed as ladies who did not get along.

“I’m not going to get into what it was but let’s just say I don’t think they had any intention for us to have a good experience on that show,” she said. “Pitting two females against each other wasn’t cool. It should have been about the contestants instead of about some nonexistent feud that turned into even more ridiculousness. I would never want to be involved with it again.”

“But everybody else can like it,” she concluded.
