Nicki Minaj Fires Back at Devin Velez, Taunts Eliminated Idol Finalist

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Devin Velez was eliminated from American Idol last week.

But the finalist hasn't exactly gone away quietly.

Following his ousting, Velez was asked about judge Nicki Minaj's harsh critique of his Wednesday night group performance, saying she "went crazy" and needed to "calm down" and added:

"She could have been upset because the night before she was wearing the same colored dress as Mariah.'"

Farewell, Devin

Minaj did not take kindly to this biting comment, going off on Devin via Twitter in response.

"Lol. Be mad @AMERICA when u get sent home," Nicki wrote. "The JUDGES are the ones who FOUGHT for America to get the opp to vote for you #memba?"

Minaj also shot down Velez's claim that the judges should have used their once-per-season Save on him, bringing up the talents of Candice Glover, Janelle Arthur and others:

"America r the 'potential' fans," she wrote. "U MUST win them over. 'Saves' are bullshit and they know it. Those girls are just too good this year."

But Minaj did end her rant with some quasi advice to Devin:

"Jennifer Hudson didn't win!!! Oscar Winner! #memba??? ok. Take that exposure and let your light shine."

Do you think Velez should have been eliminated last week?

devin was good at the start, when he portrayed this white young guy who sings classical songs, then he changed into the "gay look" coloring his hair & telling everyone he is actually latino...he started his fall when he sang songs in spanish, mistakenly the judges praised him & he believed them, but America is no fool & he started to fall
