Nicki Minaj prevented from performing on 'American Idol'


On Thursday night, American Idol had its season finale. Three of its judges performed on stage, as Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, and Randy Jackson captivated audiences.

Problem is there are four judges on American Idol.

Nicki Minaj was the odd judge out and addressed not performing in a press conference after the finale.

In a press conference with reporters, Minaj explained why: “I had already committed to the Billboard Awards for my single ['High School'],” she said. “I wasn’t allowed to perform on Idol and Billboard.”

So I guess she only has one song in her arsenal now? Something does not smell right with that answer.

When asked about coming back for the thirteenth season of the show, Minaj ignored the question. A little trouble in paradise, perhaps? Minaj's return to the show seems unlikely.

"She's a good judge, but bad for the brand," said a source after the season ended. In fact, earlier this year Minaj said that producers would not allow her video for "High School" to air as it was "too risqué." So why did they hire someone "too risqué"?

While Minaj seems unhappy with Idol, she did praise the season's winner, Candice Glover.

“I predicted that she would win, so someone owes me money,” Minaj said. “Her voice surpassed everyone. America got it right."

If America wants to know why the rest of the world thinks they're idiots, Nicki Minaj is a perfect example.
