From Idol to home sweet home.

After another long day serving as judge on FOX’s American Idol on Wednesday, Mariah Carey left her sparkly dress on as she hung out with her twins before their bedtime. 

“after the show last night: ) rushed home to put #dembabies to sleep!” Mimi wrote on Twitter, along with a snapshot of her and her kids in their nursery.

Carey, 42, relaxed on the floor, still in her dress and stilettos, while little Monroe read from a picture book. Moroccan, meanwhile, looked like he was choosing his own book or cleaning the already tidy room.

Earlier in the day, the pop diva shared a photo of herself posing with a plush lamb toy.

“The lambs are always in my heart #L4L,” she wrote on Twitter, referring to her fans.

On Thursday, American Idol sent Tennessee native Paul Jolley home, making him second guy in a row eliminated from the show.

“I absolutely knew I was going home tonight,” he said after the broadcast. “I knew it in my heart 100 percent. Everybody else got mostly positive feedback and I didn’t.”

Did you watch Idol this week? Do you think the right person was sent home? Weigh in below.
