Another entertaining night on American Idol … thanks to Nicki Minaj.
After contestants Burnell Taylor, Devin Velez and Lazaro Arbos’ performed “I Can’t Help Myself” on Wednesday night, Nicki shared her thoughts on how horrible she thought they were. “I don’t know what that was, but I’m going to act like I didn’t see it or hear it. I’m going to thank God you three already had your solo performances,” Minaj explained.
The trio struggled to complete the song after 21-year-old Lazaro forgot his lines and was unable to recover. “You fell as flat at as a pancake. Don’t ever do that,” Nicki quipped before getting really nasty. “All three of you go. Get off the stage.”
Looks like the New York rapper is channeling her inner Simon Cowell. Check out the video of the performance below.
