Sure, miss Minaj might not be the most professional or serious Idol judge of all time, but she’s ENTERTAINING as hell. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t even be watching Idol right now.

nicki has been late twice for judging. most employers would drop her and rightfully so. the best judge is keith urban. its getting old when she keeps talking about female singers lipstick. nicki tries to upstage the contestants just like when she did that to madonna at superbowl.

I really think that Nicki is entertaining and she is exhibiting the same personality you see in every interview and music video she does. People don’t like her because she has her own way of expressing herself and she can be pretty harsh at times. I think she is just telling the contestants the truth about their performance which is her job as an American Idol judge. I was telling my co-worker that I would want someone to be honest with me because it would make me better as an artist; sugar coating in the industry won’t get you anywhere. I think that she is really bringing some realism to the show.

Nicki is ruining the show for everyone. This year the talent is superb, but it is hard to focus on what is important with that Bimbo trying to steal the show. I was in tears tonight and they wouldn’t do the save. She makes me physically feel ill, can’t stand her look, her mouth and her attitude. Get her off the show before it is totally ruined.

Can she leave now? I think she is a Joke and her disagreement with Mariah was terrible.

Nicki need to be out cause all I could say is she has to remember she was like them . It toke her a long time for her to get where she at to become a singer n famous or popular whatever it is . These people is less then a yr to become a idol n it alot of pressure for them to reach there dream n going against people to become a singer. It more hard for them then be a singer n just trying to get someone to listen to ur music n sign a record deal. It no pressure just keep trying again until u find someone. Nicki could be herself but be professional not being nasty or give attitude to people. I know she wont like that is they talk to her like that is she was on that stage n judges give attitude or whatever her perform is. Give opinion of course but in a professional way.

I am certain Nikki has a place somewhere, BUT not as a Judge on the IDOL? Watching her Body Lanuage, her eyes, her Really bad Attitude is very sad for viewers. I am very surprised execs do not sense this? Just sad!

Nicki – in comparison to Mariah Carey- comes across very unprofessional! She gives feedback in a way- that it often seems disrespectful to the contestants. (she is a performer, yes- but she can’t even sing herself, she’s a rapper- that’s all!)
I don’t know why she was put on American idol in the first place- no way she deserved that spot. I hope to not see her again next year.
It was a BAD, BAD move for American Idol to choose her…
But I guess we all make mistakes.:)

Nicki Minaj is not a bad judge. She tells as it is and often tries to say comforting words to the singers. Her problems are the sometimes secual comments she makes. If seh can let go ot those, she can be lots of fun.

Nicki needs to tone down on American idol…she’s not being a very good role model for America and for the contestants on the show…there’s a huge difference between constructive criticism and insulting and she’s just down right insulting the people on American idol. She’s not really being a positive influence…
That is all!

Umm Nicki Mina is probably the worst just on american idol ever. First of all she is a rapper. Not a singer which definitely shows when she is making her comments on these singers. She has no idea what she is talking about. The onlyyy thing she is good at on this show is being totally rude and inappropriate with everyone. Until this show I liked Nicki Minaj. Now she is a total b*tch!!

I would love to see Nicki go. Have you ever noticed that the first words out of her mouth after a contestant sings is about how that person looks? Isn’t this a singing competition? She’s very shallow.

If this girl is a judge again on American Idol I will notr watch the next season. She has no business making comments on how they look in the way she states it. You can tell before the person performs if she even likes them or they will get a change with her. She needs to go now. What were they thinking??????

that is the best news i have heard regarding idol—–she is the worst judge idol has had—-to have such a non-talent sitting with the likes of true talent like mariah carey is an insult to the show —–why scrape the bottom of the barrel for judges when they are many TALENTED artists that would benefit the show and possibly keep it on the air——i do not enoy idol anymore especially having to listen to that nasal voice of nicki’s and the CONSTANT fixing of the hair—-she is a big joke————————–WATCH “THE VOICE”—-idol has lost its edge in so many ways!!!

It really is amazing how people use forums like these to trash someone whom they have never met. It really says something of the individual’s personality. Personally, I believe that Nicki is one of the most candid judges on the panel. You may think she is talentless; However, Nicki if she wanted to, could sing as she did intend to try out for singing in her school days, but lost her voice at the time of auditions. She goofs around when it comes to singing at times; but this does not mean she is inept of judging. Additionally many of her deep raps are very metaphorical and allegorical and full of motifs and symbols. Note I said her deep raps not the ones where she seems to be goofing around and just having fun. Finally, she is as stupid as some of you try to make her seem; she is quite intelligent… Besides she graduated with honors. Who are you all to judge? Which of you is perfect? I thought so.
