Nicki Minaj runs late
The first live show of American Idol took place last night and the show began with one of the judges missing.
That judge was the ever-exuberant Nicki Minaj, who arrived 13 minutes after the show went on air.
Show host Ryan Seacrest made light of the situation as Nicki struggled to get into the studio after being stuck in traffic.
“Which one of you gave Nicki the wrong directions today? Which one of you drained the fuel from her car?” Seacrest joked.
Mariah Carey, who has had her differences with Nicki throughout this season, remained silent throughout the whole ordeal, simply shaking her head disapprovingly.
Minaj eventually did show up wearing a black hood and sunglasses.
