Nicki Minaj Threatens To Walk Off American Idol Because Favorite Contestant Was Voted Off
Nicki Minaj stormed off set during the preliminary rounds and then showing up late to Wednesday’s live show, Minaj threatened to quit Idol all together on Thursday night.
“Are you kidding me?” the Super Bass singer, 30, exclaimed after Curtis Finch Jr. was voted off. Minaj was so upset she left her seat at the table.
“Curtis, if you go home, I go home,” Minaj told the contestant.” I definitely think Curtis should not be in the bottom two. I mean, I love Devin but I think that Curtis, if you look at every one of his performances, I mean — come on, America, are you kidding me?
Nicki then told Curtis:
“If you leave, I leave.”
Fellow judge Keith Urban did agree with Minaj, adding that he too was “a little shocked.”
We’re sure that Mariah maintained a professional demeanor on the outside, but inside, she was probably more excited than Jerry Sandusky at a Boy Scout meeting at the prospect of Onika exiting stage left.
Ultimately, Nicki walked around the set until she finally sat her cakes back down.
