There won't be any more drama between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj on "American Idol."

Carey isn't returning to the judges table next season, according to a tweet by her PR firm Thursday.

"W/ global success of (her new single) '#Beautiful' (#1 in 30+ countries so far) @MariahCarey confirms world tour & says goodbye 2 Idol," the tweet said.

Randy Jackson, the only remaining judge from the first season of the show, recently announced that he too is leaving "Idol."

Carey joined the table this past season along with Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, replacing Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.

There were multiple reports all season that Carey and Minaj didn't get along backstage.

It is unclear if Minaj or Urban will return for another season of the Fox show.
