Nicki Minaj's Grammys Performance - Watch Now!

Nicki Minaj levitates during her performance at the 2012 Grammy Awards held at Staples Center on Sunday (February 12) in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old rapper kicked it off by confessing the lyrics to her new single, “Roman Holiday,” while sitting next to The Pope, the same man she walked with on the red carpet earlier in the evening.

The performance, called “The exorcism of [Nicki's alter ego] Roman,” was choreograhed by Laurieann Gibson and featured religious imagery, pyrotechnics, and backup dancers dressed as monks.

“OMG @ that chris brown performance. >>>>>>>> SHUT DOOWWWNNNN,” Nicki tweeted about another one of the night’s performers.

IM SO SICK OF brain washed people , IF LADY GAGA DID THE SAME THING , EVERYONE WOULD BE SAYING HOW AMAZING IT WAS , LET’S BE HONEST . When someone black does Something like this , everyone freaks out ! We are living in a time where people like Adele could sing two notes and win 5 Grammys for shame ! It’s ashame that everyone acts as if race is not and issue . If u are white you get away with way more stuff , sad sad sad ! Gaga’s ex artistic director is Nicki’s now, love love loved it

SHAME ON YOU GRAMMY PRODUCERS AND NICKI MINAJ!! I’M SO SICK AND TIRED OF BEING CATHOLIC AND WATCHING POP CULTURE INSULT MY FAITH LIKE THIS!! I WANT TO SEE ANY OTHER RELIGIOUS DENOMINATION BE AS BRUTALLY DISRESPECTED AS MINE IS AND JUST ALLOW IT!! I WANT TO SEE IF THIS HAPPENED TO THE TRADITIONS OF ANY OTHER FAITH AND IT NOT BE UNDER ATTACK BY THE MEDIA!! DISGUSTING!! ENOUGH ALREADY!!

Because it was amazing !

WTF was that? Worst waste of time ever. I’m glad i didnt watch teh Grammys and Im glad I skipped through that just now. purely awful! Is that music? performance? wtf was it?

Well…. I just can’t believe she thought that was ok……! She’s just an all around WEIRDO……!

@BarbieTeensCali:

Nicki minaj stan, performance sucked, music sucked, she sucked. another 2 years and we will be rid of this hemrrhoid on the ass of music forever, thank god

I am angry..so many unsigned people with talent and this is what we’re stuck with? This was beyond awful, Nicki..pick a friggin personality and stick to it, nobody cares about Roman..honestly. smh.

I didn’t watch the grammy’s last night so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about! This is HORRIBLE!!!!

@Marr2500: adele actually has talent tho sooooo, where are you going with this??

I thought it was HOT!

@Marr2500:

I agree with you 100%! If lady gaga did it, there would be nothing but praise. It’s because she’s talented, black and hot….they hate that.

I would like to have seen this Sista” ridicule Muhammad or Islam in such a way!!! Gotta feeling a Big Fat fatwa might be on her pink/blue/purple head in a Big Fast way!!! I would like to have seen Grammy attendees get up and walk out on that one..I would have at least a shred of respect for -some- in their business!!! Just sayin….

@Marr2500:

“We are living in a time where people like Adele could sing two notes and win 5 Grammys for shame ! It’s ashame that everyone acts as if race is not and issue”

- ahem – Clearly your memory doesn’t stretch all the way back to 2010 “Beyoncé, who also received the most nominations, with ten, won a total of six awards breaking the record for most wins by a female artist in one night”. Now remind me what race Beyonce is. So maybe race isn’t n issue.

People are up in arms about the performance mostly because it was awful. Yes a lot have been upset by the Catholic aspect (which lets face it has been down to death now by female performers), but the performance itself was shoddy – bad singing, bad music and unoriginal to the extreme. Personally, as an atheist the religious overtones don’t upset me from a belief aspect, but from a “quality” aspect it was awful.
I think a number of people there could do with listening to Dave Grohl’s acceptance speech closely.

@Tracy:

“I agree with you 100%! If lady gaga did it, there would be nothing but praise. It’s because she’s talented, black and hot….they hate that.”

Gaga has done it, she did the “controversial” catholic imagery a while back. Feel free to read the comments

Interesting to note that there is an awful lot of comments that aren’t “nothing but praise”, and that many of the criticisms aimed at her (unoriginal, to much foccus on style over content etc.) are identical to those being aimed at Minaj. This has nothing to do with race and everything to do with putting out lazy, unoriginal music that appeals to the lowest common denominator.

satanic, demonic and of everything evi!!!!!!! Wake up world~the devil is here in full force. Put on the armor of God and protect your children….while you still can. hurry!

It was horrible and sacrilege at the most . I understand that she is a entertainer and that is what they do but there was nothing entertaining about that . I turned from it when I saw it turning into a exorcism ……Have a little class I tried to turn back and watch but could not stomach the food poising that she was serving last night. Garbage……It was fit for the curb last night.

I honestly turned off the TV and went to bed about 30 seconds into this. What was that?? Lady Gaga is a freak too but atleast she can sing. This freak should be banned from the industry for MASSIVE lack of talent.

i don’t see anything wrong with it…yea it’s kinda weird but i don’t see how it was disgusting or rude.

@gg:
*****, don’t nobody care!

@zeeessss:

How do you say “God” and “wtf” in the same sentence???

Nicki Minaj should be banned from performing at any future high-profile events. I was watching with my wife and son and had to turn the channel because her performance was so disheartening and offensive. These celebrities should be treated like professional athletes. If an athlete does something offensive, they are fined and in some cases suspended.

Celebs…you’ve been given a stage with millions watching. Do some good with those moments. You want to push the envelope?!?! Push it in a positive direction!!

I think this was the performance of the night at the Grammy’s. Adele should take a lesson or two from Nicki on how to really put on a great, entertaining performance. Adele equals Boooriiinggg. Nicki pushed it to another level. I’m really expecting Nicki to make a big impact at next yr’s Grammy awards and to pick up many awards for her new album.
