Tons of viewers tuned in to last night’s season premiere of American Idol— 17.8 million to be exact—and that includes new show judge Mariah Carey and her baby girl, Monroe!

During the show, where Mariah and fellow new judges Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj were introduced to the panel, the superstar shared a photo of herself cuddling in bed with her 1-year-old daughter.

The singer captioned the pic, “looking at Instagram during a commercial break #idol.”

And even though both mommy and daughter dressed in comfortable pajamas for the premiere, that didn’t prevent the diva from donning some serious bling!

Mariah wore a diamond bracelet on her right wrist, a matching diamond butterfly ring on her right hand, and of course, her wedding band and engagement ring from hubby Nick Cannon on the other...all with her jammies.

The star, who received a ton of praise after her first episode, was even teased by show host Ryan Seacrest about her fabulousness.
