Nicki Minaj's Grammys Performance - Watch Now!

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.

    This is one of the sickest, filthiest, most disgusting things I’ve ever seen, and to allow it on the Grammys, which is supposed to be a classy show. The Grammys have been going downhill for years, but this is definitely one of the worst , most ridiculous things I”ve seen.

    All imma say is Illuminati devil worship taking place right before america WAKE UP PEOPLE. Our youth is listening to this trash i bet many people were afraid to go to sleep after watching that. What cracks me up is the prayer LL said in the begining and then her performance Uhhh excuse me but you can’t serve the devil and God choose. I can’t believe people applauded that mess they should have put together a tribute to whitney instead of that and Hudson messed that song all up what a total disappointment. They ALL need Jesus hes coming back soon be ready!!

    I’m absolutely disgusted, disturbed, and shocked that she would do this production on the night of a celebration of “MUSIC” and “MEMORY OF WHITNEY HOUSTON” with this bad taste performance. If we all reflect on the Beach Boys, Glen Campbell, and other bands, musicians from our history, the music was so pleasant, mellow, happy and influenced our society in a sweeter way. This song/act represents the darkness that surrounds us. Nicki is capable of so much more and this truly disappoints me. My daughter enjoys her music, but now, after this performance I can not support her currently.

    peace and love~

    I love how every comment that compliments this performance gets hidden from a low rating. I was entertained. If you knew anything about Nicki Minaj and her music, you would understand the symbolism behind this performance. Yes, it was over the top. But that’s who she is. Oh, and this comment will probably be hidden because I’m not ridiculing her, so thanks for clicking to see it!

    This Web site by a Pastor in L.A. has some amazing documentary on the role of evil in very accepted music. Satan was an angel and angels are gifted in music…

    This was pure disrespect for the catholics and other religions that believe in GOD first, second if we look back at other performances from year before, she has done what they have done. They say once you accept the terms of Illuminiti you have to make the performance known to everyone that is watching, she has sold her soul for fame and fortune. This is not music, but madness in our faces. please take the msg from the video and not the lyrics (lack of). damn shame
