You were wrong, Mariah Carey.
That is essentially the message new "American Idol" judge Harry Connick Jr. had for Carey, who has not had great things to say about her former employer. While appearing recently on New York Radio station Hot 97 Carey said of her time judging last season "Honestly, I hated it" and refered to the gig as hell.
Au contraire, says Connick Jr., who this season will join Keith Urban and returning judge Jennifer Lopez at the "Idol" table. He tweeted “@MariahCarey – Must’ve been hard to judge in hell. Idol XIII: Welcome to heaven!”
But lest you believe the superstar pair have beef, Connick Jr. tweeted that he has nothing but love for Carey.
