The 2012 series began shooting on Sunday in New York, with Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban joining Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson on the new panel. Rumours from the shoot suggested Carey angered Minaj by talking over her comments to the singers auditioning for the show.
Carey has now denied these rumours, and says that talks of a fall-out are a little premature.
"How are we gonna feud in two days? A feud takes a little longer to spread out," says Mariah Carey to MTV news. "It's fun, it's music, it's singing, it's laughter."
It was previously reported that Mariah Carey was furious with producers when Minaj was approached for a judging role on the show in August. She later denied any feud between the two as she told photographers "Tension? What tension?".
