"It is one of the worst decisions I've made," she admitted this week in a chat with Howard Stern.

"As a fan of the shows, it doesn't matter that I sing or I know anything about pitch or anything, I'm like everybody else at home," she explained. "It's American Idol. So I thought I'm gonna represent those people at home that have opinions."

"Then I just thought I can't break this person's heart. Let somebody else do that."

In March, Mariah Carey also slammed the singing competition, saying: "It's so boring and so fake. I'm sorry, when I say it's fake, I mean you have to make up things to say about people."

"Half the time, the performances are good, you just want to be like, 'It was good.' You just feel like ending it there, like, 'It's really good.'"

As for her time at the judges table, Carey said: "That was the worst experience of my life. I would never want to be involved in it again."
