by at . Comments

American Idol eliminated one finalist last night, leaving eight remaining, all hoping to strike it big, earn a Grammy nomination and sell millions of records.

Just like Nicki Minaj!

The hip hot artist brought her fun attitude and all of her cleavage to the results show this week, dancing around the stage and performing a version of "Starships," the debut track off a new album that comes out on April 3.

Minaj also jokingly asked Jennifer Lopez to "scoot over" so she could judge the contestants for a bit, to which J. Lo replied: “I don’t know if there’s room for both of us up here.”

Check out the performance below and look for Nicki to appear on TV often over the next few days: she will appear at Saturday’s Kids’ Choice Awards and also on the April 6 edition of The Today Show.
