Nicki Minaj Starships Blasts Off on American Idol (watch!) 1Nicki Minaj is a force of nature. She stole the show on Fox’s “American Idol” last night with a high energy performance of her new song “Starships.” At one point, she seemed to nearly suffer a wardobe malfunction.

The 29-year-old singer was stuffed into a tight, barely there rainbow-colored bikini top and paused mid-song to reel in a nearly exposed breast.

The singer also got sassy with Judge Jennifer Lopez in a comical exchange. “I was hoping maybe I could come back and be a guest judge,” Minaj said, while host Ryan Seacrest looked on. “J-Lo, can you scoot over a little bit?”

J-Lo played right along. “I don’t know if there’s enough room for both of us,” she said. Was that a reference to their egos, or their rear ends? In any event, it was hilarious.

The blonde wigged singer is promoting her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. It will be released next Friday

Check out the video below of her performance.
