Golden Girl! Mariah Carey Wears a Stunning Dress at "American Idol" (Photos)

Careful how you sit!

Mariah Carey arrived in style to a taping of American Idol today, wearing a short-short sequined gold dress and equally shiny spike heels. Not everyone’s idea of a business outfit – but for her, it works.

Joining her was fellow judge Keith Urban, looking fine (if not quite as sparkly) in country-star-appropriate leather jacket and boots. On his way in, he was presented with a gift box of some expensive-looking liquor.

Arriving less ceremoniously: new judge Nicki Minaj. Sources say she was a full two hours late, and tried to block the camera’s view as she exited her ride.

Well, it wouldn’t be Idol without some drama, right?

What do you think of Mariah’s dress?
