While it’s looking more and more like Nicki Minaj, Enrique Iglesias, and Keith Urban will be joining the American Idol’s Season 12 judging lineup, Mariah Carey joked that she could judge the entire show by herself if need be.

TMZ caught up with the only confirmed Idol judge in New York City and asked about the reported tension between herself and Nicki, to which MC replied, “What tension?”

The papparazi later intercepted Mariah at the Los Angeles airport, where they asked who else she’d like to see join the panel. “I'd answer that, but I'm not quite sure how,” she said.

When the suggestion that she could helm the show by herself came up, she laughed and declared, “Naturally! … Why not?”

A Mimi-centric show? That would certainly be entertaining!
