The pop superstar made her debut as a judge during the FOX show's Wednesday night debut but skipped any lavish premiere parties. Instead, Carey opted for a night in bed with 8-month-old daughter Monroe.
To which Carey replied, "Thank you dahhling haaaa!"
With her Idol duties underway, Carey is putting her focus on the music, first and foremost. After all, it was Monroe and Moroccan who inspired her to join the judges' panel.
"For me, ultimately, this is about the kids, the contestants,” Carey said during a Nightline interview with Barbara Walters. “I’ve been blessed to live my dream more than half my life, so I want help give that back to someone else.”
