Nicki Minaj Goes Missing In Action On American Idol [VIDEO]

Nicki Minaj showed up 13 minutes late to Tuesday night’s American Idol show the first live performances for the Top Ten finalists causing host Ryan Seacrest to filibuster a bit in her absence:

“We are coming to you live and on time … keep that energy going for three of your four judges who are here tonight,” he said. “I hear she’s seven minutes out and there’s some congestion on the 405 … she should be here momentarily. Which one of you gave Nicki the wrong directions today?” Seacrest joked.

Nicki finally appeared during Curtis Finch, Jr.‘s set, in a hoodie and sunglasses. Things were back to normal by the time the night’s second singer, Janelle Arthur, took the stage.
