The comments were suspected to be referring to fellow former AI judge Nicki Minaj. The two performers had a really public feud that played on the reality show. Carey’s husband Nick Cannon revealed to Access Hollywood that he does not believe the Satan remark was aimed at Minaj or any of the other judges.

“I don’t think her comment was about anyone on the panel,” said Cannon. “I don’t think she was speaking directly about [Nicki Minaj]. I think she was talking about the situation in general.”

Carey mentioned during the Martinez interview that she was surprised when American Idol producers decided to add a fourth judge on the show after she was under the impression that she would be the only female on the panel.
