Appearing on Australia's The Kyle and Jackie O Show, Mimi explained: "You have to make up things to say about people. Half the time the performances are good, you just be like 'it was good' and you feel like ending it there."

Mariah also spoke about her apparent feud with fellow judge Nicki Minaj, saying: "Pitting two females against each other wasn't cool." The singer claimed the "non-existent" feud took away attention from contestants.

And mum-of-two Mariah didn't hold back when she was asked if she'd ever return for a reunion show, slamming the idea completely!

"Hell, no! Absolutely not, that was the worst experience of my life. I'm not going to get into what it was, let's just say, I don't think they had any intentions of us having a good experience through that show."
