Nicki Minaj arrived 13 minutes late to the set of American Idol on Wednesday night. This normally wouldn’t be much of an issue…except American Idol began airing their live shows that same night.
As the camera panned across the judges table, Nicki Minaj was nowhere to be found. It turns out she was stuck in traffic. Ryan Seacrest was quick to point out Nicki’s absence both during the show and on Twitter…
“We are coming to you live and on time,” host Ryan Seacrest said, before asking the crowd which top 10 finalist could win this season. After the cheering subsided, Seacrest added, “Keep that energy going for three of your four judges who are here tonight.”

After missing one of the contestants, Nicki finally arrived on set wearing an interesting black hoodie/sunglasses combo.
She said she was going for a more toned down look, but I don’t necessarily think this is exactly what she meant….
