OMG! The former Idol judge admits she "hated" doing the show and says "it was like going to work every day in hell with Satan" LOS ANGELES, CA - MARCH 07:  Judge Mariah Carey attends the FOX Mariah Carey isn't mincing words when it comes how she felt about her stint judging American Idol.

In a new interview with Hot 97's Angie Martinez, Mimi says she was miserable on the Fox show.

"Honestly, I hated it," she said, explaining that she didn't like how they used four judges that season. "I was the first person who signed on...honestly, I thought it was going to be a three person panel."

Mariah famously feuded with Nicki Minaj on the show multiple times and clearly, the singer doesn't miss working with her.

"It was like going to work everyday in hell with Satan," she confessed.

But at least there was one good part. "You know what I loved? I loved the contestants," Mariah concluded.

Neither Nicki or Mariah returned to the judges' table. What do you think of her remarks?
