What would a Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey duet sound like?
The final contestants are usually what we keep our eyes and ears on, but this week on American Idol, one of the judges took the four finalists' spotlight.
Nicki Minaj is the most unpredictable judge on the panel, and we never know what she's going to do next.
After Amber Holcomb's performance of "MacArthur Park" by Richard Harris, the finalist's mentor Jimmy Iovine disagreed with the judges' accolades. During Nicki's feedback to Candice Glover, who performed right after Amber, Nicki told Jimmy she disagreed with him. Jimmy came out on stage, and Nicki made her way to the stage as well. But instead of giving us a good smackdown, the two playfully poked fun at each other before sharing a hug.
The four finalists all did duets with one another, and Ryan Seacrest asked if Nicki and Mariah Carey would do one. "Me and Mariah would be like this, 'What?! What?!'" said Nicki, while snapping her fingers with a little bit of innocent attitude.
After Kree Harrison's take on Susan Tedeschi's "It Hurt So Bad," Nicki threw us for a loop.
"Take some time to meditate," Nicki told Kree before advising that she go back and take a look at her old song choices and the reasons she chose them. But then she switched to a slightly angry-edged tone with her last words: "Everyone can go blow smoke up your ass if they want to!"
What?! Was that really called for? Let us know what you think.
