The new judges on the hit Fox show were forced to address their backstage battle -- a shocking video leaked in October -- during the 2013 Winter TCA tour at Langham Hotel in Pasadena, Calif. on Tuesday, Jan. 8.
So, could the two judges say something nice about each other during the panel?
"I say nice things about Mariah all the time," Minaj said. "She's one of my favorite artists of all times. She's really shaped a generation of singers. To be on a panel with her, it's kind of crazy."
"That was obviously a very sweet thing to say," Carey replied. "Nicki and I worked together very early on in her career and did a song -- it's called 'Up Out My Face,' ironically. I did know, and feel, she was going to go very far."
