A Montage of Nicki Minaj Wacky Nicknames (VIDEO)

Idol judge, Nicki Minaj,  has this weird habit she can’t control. She gives people weird nicknames. In this new promo from American Idol, a slew of her cray names for contestants are put together in a montage.

“Cutie Pie,” “Lady Bug,” “Gumby,” “Top Hat,” “Curly,” “Bunny,” and “Mushroom” are just a few of the wacky names.

Her reasoning? She says it helps her remember the contestants, in addition to making them feel special!

Check it out below.

    Nicki is the reason I’m going to watch the show tonight. Yeah, I’m hoping to connect with a contestant and cheer for them, but she’s the reason I’m tuning in instead of just watching MJ’s recaps.

    Nicki makes the audition rounds more entertaining.

    As a long time Idol watcher, I have to say Nicki makes these (usually bland) audition rounds more fun!

    ”Finger Licking good” lol
    ”Let’s go Licking!” hahaha I wonder who’s that boy gonna be, or was that shown already? For 2 episodes I saw only one cute contestant. I think his name was Griff or somethin?

    She is so hilarious and witty. I had high expectations for Nicki being a great judge and she exceeded them. She is a lot of fun.

    I actually love her as a judge. I was super mad when I heard she was going to be one but I love watching her and Im intrigued by her “accent”

    I love Minaj. She catches a lot of heat, but her last album was FIRE. She has a hilarious sense of humor and is so animated. I think she is great on Idol.  :)

    There’s going to be a lot of ladybugs in Hollywood. lol

    My personal fave from last week was when she called someone(I think it was a girl)hush-puppy. That was cute.

    awww.. she’s too cute. She’s a celebrity and she is trying to make a connection with the contestants. Can you imagine how many people/fans/contestants/family outta the woodwork this girl sees?   She seems really nice.

    Love her

  • waitingforthe1

    is she entertaining?  I have refused to watch thus far.

    She is not too bad…still bearable even though I am not really a fan of hers… Maybe you should check out the Candice Glover clip on this thread on MJsblog ! If you eventually do not like her, at least you may take a look at the contestant…

    LOL… I haven’t watched any of current season… its changed channels here in UK… so timing of it isn’t convenient for me… but Minaj looks like the breakout judge… have heard positive comments re Urban also… not so much re Carey
