Despite the fact that they’re now on somewhat competing programs, new American Idol judge Mariah Carey might be re-teaming with X Factor judge L.A. Reid. L.A., who is with Sony Records now after leaving Def Jam, is credited with Mariah’s 2005 “comeback.”

According to the New York Daily News, there’s no love lost between the two for being on competitive competition programs, and even Randy Jackson — her manager and longtime Idol judge — reportedly thinks he’s “the right guy for Mariah.”

A spokesperson for Mariah deflected the story, saying “Mariah is still happily under contract with Island Def Jam… “she just wrapped the video for ‘Triumphant (Get ’Em),’ the first single from her upcoming album.”

Well, there’s a non-answer if we ever saw one.
