Los Angeles - Nicki Minaj is following Mariah Carey out the door on American Idol.

The hip-hop diva announced on Thursday on Twitter that it is "time to focus on the music".

Fox and Idol producer FremantleMedia say in a statement that they wish her the best.

Minaj became a new judge on the Fox talent competition last year along with Carey and Keith Urban. Minaj and Carey bickered on the show, creating a feud that was uncomfortable for both viewers and contestants.

Carey announced earlier on Thursday that she wasn't coming back to Idol so she can focus on her upcoming tour.

Idol veteran judge Randy Jackson announced ahead of the 12th season finale that he is also leaving the show.
