There's only room for one diva on the American Idol judging panel.

TMZ reports that Mariah Carey isn't happy about Nicki Minaj's deal to join Mimi as an Idol judge. As reported on Monday, sources say Minaj is in contract negotiations to join the reality singing competition's 12th season. But not if Mariah has anything to say about it.

Sources claim Carey was led to believe she would be the only woman on the judging panel, and she's livid about the prospect of sharing the spotlight with another gal. The 42-year-old singer is also said to be concerned about having a 29-year-old up-and-coming pop star sitting right next to her. This latest news about Mimi throwing a fit is obviously shocking totally and completely expected, given her past reputation for divalicious behavior.

As for the other judges, sources say country stars Brad Paisley and Keith Urban are in the running, as well as Enrique Iglesias. Don't count out Nick Jonas and Adam Lambert, though, who were both approached by producers about the gig. And if Mariah Carey has anything to say about it, which obviously she does, Lenny Kravitz might be throwing his hat into the very crowded Idol judging ring soon. The singer sent out the following tweet yesterday after word of Minaj's potential deal broke:
