She said, "It's taken a bit to get used to the new judges. I come from American Idol, so I'm used to seeing Simon, Paula and Rand... It's kind of awkward for me to see it with new judges... I'm happy that [Mariah Carey]'s there because she's a singer, so she knows what to expect, how to judge, even the position that the kids are in when they're auditioning."
