They weren't lying when they said this was going to get everyone talking!

Nicki Minaj debuted a new song from her upcoming album, Roman Reloaded, tonight at the 54th Grammy Awards, and took the religious motif to new levels on stage where she had her Roman personality essentially exorcised during the performance!

Ch-ch-check out Roman Holiday (above)!

If you think the beginning is CRAZY, just wait for the end!

    That was the biggest effin trainwreck.



  2. 2

    That shit was a mess. Just awful!!!1



  3. 3

    Awful does not begin to describe this stupid performance. It was the worst of the evening.



  4. 4

    I agree



  5. 5

    If she actually was able to sing live, and well, then….well….it would have been way better.

    I LOVE her but WTF?! She had to know how bad that was before she did it!



  7. 7

    All these people were hacks for the most part but this foolishness had people laughing only its not supposed to be funny right? Nikki Minaj is so over. NEXT!



  8. 8

    Re: J2thb – Nope she didn't cause she has no taste. LOL have you seen her I mean come on



  9. 9

    HORRIFIC and also totally offensive.



  10. 10

    Someone needs to tell Nikki that truly talented musicians and singers, don't need onstage exocisms and antics, to get the crowd going. Adele and Paul McCartney are proof of that.



  11. 11

    I thought it was one of the few "misses" of the night. I especially liked Alicia Keys & Bonnie Raitt, Foo Fighters with Deadmau5 and others.



  12. 12

    i enjoy when the Grammys play clips of past grammies, i just love seeing lady gaga being raised to the sky…oh wait never mind wrong performance…nicky just because you get the church upset doesn't make you equals with madonna



  13. 13

    Should've lip synced that song, the foo fighters did it tonight and they were a lOt better



  14. 14

    Re: Cr@zyB1tch – Amen to that! Nothing more than gimmickry to hide a lack of vocal talent (and that goes for Katy Perry as well). Favourite shows" Adele, Paul, Alicia Keys, Beach Boys, and even the Glen Campbell set. No cheesy stuff - just good music.



  15. 15

    That was fucking retarded. Not even entertaining on any level. My God, what the fuck is music going to sound like in 10 years??? I hope Adele can be more of an influence on young music listeners than this garbage.



  16. 16

    That was extremely offensive. Nothing like trying to hide your lack of talent with exorcisms and drama. Maybe she was hoping no one would notice how bad she sounds if she distracted the viewers with controversial antics.



  17. 17

    I am not down with the Demonic Satanic mess Niki just did. I rebuke that in the name of Jesus!!! The Catholic church is gonna give her hell.



  18. 18

    Yea if you don't like it then really your a hater…..why don't you like it cause it wasn't wack….did the church thing offend you? really…..

    if you were a real nicki minaj fan from the beginning you would understand Nicki aka Roman :) have a nice night



  19. 19

    That was SUCH a bad song! I am so surprised by how horrible she sounded.. the chorus was painful to listen to that wasn't even music.. and that "video" where the priest comes to that white ladies house..? WTF?? I was laughing out loud it was so bad it was funny.



  20. 20

    the worst!!! wtf was that???



  21. 21

    This was just… annoying.
    I didn't like it at all really.



  22. 22

    This was PATHETIC! She's trying way too fucking hard and she's embarrassing herself. Not to mention I'm not even close to being religious and even I was fucking offended! She needs to just go away.



  23. 23

    Such a pathetic excuse for attention. Been there done that ala Madonna. Seriously be original. From the Grammy outfit on the red carpet to the performance. I like her but she was unnecessarily offensive when she does not eed to be. Sad…..



  24. 24

    this shitty perfomance was completely ridiculous, so lame! i was like WTF when is this shit going to end? she cant sing and the song dont even have rythm or melody or nothing, its like an insult to real artists that work hard to make real music, people like the beach boys, or paul mccartney, even adele, who sings her lungs out. She's like a full copy of lady gaga and madonna and Lil Kim alltogether. It was really bad!



  25. 25

    three yrs from today we wil see her on a" Where Are They Now?" special



  26. 26

    Nicky Minaj clearly has no class, morals, or even talent! She's so desperate I wouldn't be surprised if she sold her soul cause it looks like she did! Did she really had to display that kind of trash? How embarrassing and offensive can you be? I don't even understand why the Grammy's would allow such trash to perform that shit in the first place. Real talent like Adele, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson, and even Taylor Swift didn't have to perform raunchy shit to get attention.



  27. 27

    Loved it. Exactly what I wanted.



  28. 28

    This was fucking ridiculous. Total garbage.



  29. 29

    Absolutely horrendous



  30. 30

    i took the time to register just to comment on here. its funny how perez disabled comments on the last piece of news on gaga @ the grammys. is madonna paying you not to talk about gaga perez? some months ago all you talked about was gaga and all of a sudden you choose to ignore the news on gaga's new tour when dates and the poster come out??? what's wrong with you. you sure were BFF with gaga when she appeared on your show in the UK. what a hypocrite.

    now you make news on the 'queen' of pop that managed to reach #13 on billboard 100. high class journalism.



  31. 31

    Re: RichieG – Do you need meds or what? LOL



  32. 32

    This "performance" was offensive to the eyes in more ways than one. Nicki, congrats! your attempts to offend the Catholic church, Christians and even those who just have a general respect for the beliefs of others to believe in a God were successful. You also proved just how worthless you are as an "artist" who should be respected for your so-called "talent." The extraordinary effort you had to put into making this act as ridiculous as it was goes to prove just how terrible you really are, and your attempts at hiding your lack of talent were unsuccessful to those who wished the producers would spare us of seeing and hearing by going to commercial. I have never been so happy for something to end… Hopefully, this marks the beginning of your end.



  33. 33

    This was just awful and embarrassing. If I were her I would quit music after tonight.



  34. 34

    F**K GRAMMYS !! TONY BENNETT & AMY WINEHOUSE TOOK THE BEST DUO/GROUP AWARD, ONLY BECAUSE AMY IS D-E-A-D……… IN FACT, "MOVES LIKE JUGGER" DESERVED THE GRAMMY!!!!
    THEY GAVE THE GRAMMY TO A SONG JUST BECAUSE THE ONE PERFORMER IS OLD AND THE OTHER ONE IS DEAD…. LAME… "MOVES LIKE JAGGER IS A SUPER HIT, THAT DESERVES GRAMMIES…….



  35. 35

    well i be the first to slam her usually but at least it was entertaining …the end? there was nothing at the end ugh



  36. 36

    Best performance of the night in my opinion. Loved it. The music and rapping was awesome.



  37. 37

    wow…..that was crazy brilliant …..best perfomance at the grammy's in years



  38. 38

    Well Madonna did it with like a Virgin and then her reincarnation in the form of Lady Gaga pushed closer to the edge. Sometimes its better to let people assume you have no talent than to verify it for the whole world with nonsense like this. Music is a celebration of different genre's and this was not music it was an offensive theft of everyone's time.



  39. 39

    she's crazyyyyyy……………………



  40. 40

    That was probably the worst performance I've ever seen, bar none.



  41. 41

    She needs to get her sex tape out already… she's disgusting.



  42. 42

    i loved it….i can't wait for the release of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Roman Holiday was amazing and I enjoyed every last minute….i don't need medication i have been a die hard ken barb since 07 soo….haters



  43. 43

    She is MAD!



  44. 44

    Re: moonwalker – Agreed, he has completely stopped posting about Gaga unless it is in connection with Madonna or something like the Grammys. I smell someone being paid to promote mrs reductive's crappy comeback personally. He is an idiot though because I rarely bother with this site since he stopped posting about Gaga and in the process found far better sites for Gaga news without the nasty haters and trolls that proliferate this site at the moment ;o)



  45. 45

    That was a hot mess and nothing but



  46. 46

    Re: Mr. Xpose – Just because a song is a "super hit" does not mean that it's good and deserving of any sort of awards or recognition.



  47. 47

    I have said this since the second she came on the scene, Nicki Minaj is trying to be Lady Gaga. She has 110% copied her when it comes to being outlandish and crazy and trying to get attention. That being said, Lady Gaga would never do something that offensive (I think, lol) and Nicki Minaj is an attention seeking whore to the max. So sad.



  48. 48

    its the way of the no talent popstar of today. if you have zero talent but still want all the attention, money and fame of someone who does without having to work for it:
    dress like its holloween
    have fleets of back up dancers and a huge stage show to distract from the famewhore doing nothing amongst all of this
    find a gimmick usually the gimmick part involves trying to offend the church. its the cheap laugh way of getting talked about

    man though nicki is just following a few steps behind gaga in she copies everything gaga does or rather madonna did



  49. 49

    Re: RichieG – SHUT THE F*CK UP DANAE! You would like her considering youre a pathetic little troll that has no friends, no boyfriend and only hangs out with her mother LMAO! Keep talking sh*t about ppl, then writing 'I loooooove you msgs' all day, you psychotic PATHELOGICAL LIAR.



  50. 50

    Re: RichieG – it was a crappy preformance. if you where a fan you'd recognise a really crappy preformance



  51. 51

    It was so awful. Almost as bad as having to hear Adele's annoying ass voice and her downer music.



  52. 52

    Bashing the Catholic Church? Already been done, and by performers much more talented than her. It would be interesting to see a performer bash a Jewish religous service and see if that gets aired in Hollywood.



  53. 53

    Nicki would have done a much better job if she would have just used T-Pain's Autotune App during her performance. Since we all know that she can't REALLY sing.



  54. 54

    Re: pradagirl7 – They let it happen because Hollywood isn't Christian.



  55. 55

    omg



  56. 56

    This was absolutely dreadful. Worst of them all.
    It’s obvious she’s influenced by Lady Gaga, and there’s nothing wrong about that. But when you copy sooo hard and fail so bad… it was hard to watch.



  57. 57

    Her and Nicki kept trying to one-up eachother and i'm SICK of it. They try to be as outrageous as possible, taking cues from things Gaga has done in the past but making it atrocious. This wasn't their night, yet they try to garner all the attention towards them. Gaga knew this wasn't her night, and KNEW it was Adele's…THAT'S what makes her successful. Her timing and intelligibility is undeniable. She knows exactly what she's doing whereas Katy and Nicki just make fools out of themselves.

    That being said, this performance was such a WANNABE "Judas," but failed MISERABLY. I bet Gaga was sitting there, filing her damn nails and whistling during that performance.



  58. 58

    nooki menagerie, is seriously brain damaged, needs help badly. no-talent, classless, clownish whore.



  59. 59

    I was watching it with an open mind, I like her but some of her songs are beyong ghetto… and last night performance instead of "controversial," I thought it was a failed intent of being controversial, sorry Nicki but it sucked!



  60. 60

    Embarassing. Fucking JOKE hahahha



  61. 61

    Re: dtor23 – and see ANY of these no-talent whores offend ISLAM,,can you say FATWA. NOPE they always take the easy PC target.



  62. 62

    THIS is what happens when you make so much money that the people around you are too scared to say 'no' to you. Look, WE are the public, we are the REAL support system of these artists and their carreers and I'm really sick of being force-fed ego driven garbage disguised as 'ART' like we're stupid. Stop supporting this junk people. Stop contributing to these carreers, stop tweeting and using social networking to tell these artists that we LOVE them and stroking their ego's … it's getting way out of hand already. We as the public work way too hard to earn a living to spend that time and money on artists who are really nothing more than arrogent young kids with money who just want the world to tell them that they actually deserve to be praised and worshiped for what they're doing…when if you really take a good look at what they're doing, it's a joke. Open your eyes America and put your mind and money into something or someone real, like yourSELF.



  63. 63

    While watching this mess I had a class of wine and actually thought someone drugged my wine! I really did, I cannot believe they promoted this a "a special performance from Nicki…. Special? How about crude? Offensive? Vulgar? Trashy? No talent whatsoever? Really is her talent so terrible she HAS to resort to this sort of publicity stunt and theatrics? I would rather pay to see Lindsay Lohan sing then this garbage.



  64. 64

    This is stupid, sick and morally wrong! This is blesphemy! I love how celebrities don't mind selling their souls short for a performance. And this isn't even a good one.



  65. 65

    and gaga and madonna got crap for ever doing anything relgious.. Nicki put the cherry on top for the truly most offensive thing an artist can do to disrespect religion. How is this woman famous? madonna and gaga care more about singing than the show they put on like a true artist.



  66. 66

    Re: alana86 – Did you forget about Gaga's Judas song and video. Remember the bathtub scene with the jesus look alike?



  67. 67

    THAT BITCH RUINED IT FOR ME. THANKS NICKI FOR MAKING ME MISS MY BEDTIME. TRASH IN HUMAN FORM



  68. 68

    Wack.



  69. 69

    Nikki Minaj is such a F*n nerd. This is the chic you went to highschool with who was butt ugly, loud and annoying who thought she was the sh*. Then people started telling her she was a "star" and now this geek thinks she's god. See what happens when geeks get their ego's stroked?



  70. 70

    Re: Starlit – Actually good point I did kind of think of the Judas vid. Well Nicki is trying to be the "black Lady Gaga" I guess hey



  71. 71

    Well i guess the media and shows don't care about mature decisions..only care about the opinions of little idiotic teens, that don't know shit about good music because as much as we complain, they still hire these fucking losers and attention seeking, talentless singers as their entertainment.. pathetic..

  72. @v@ says – reply to this


    72

    What was that?
    Good will win out.



  73. 73

    It got people talking…but not in a good way. This was the most God awful thing and an assault on my ears. I felt like I had just witnessed a lion devouring a kitten. It was disgusting.



  74. 74

    So glad Adele won everything last night. I was always a Nicki fan - some of her music is catchy, and the kids/tweens love her. But this performance sucked major ass. I am getting sick of her like I'm sick of Lady Gaga. Like ok, we get it, you 'push the envelope, and you're different.' And I just hate Rihanna period - this God awful performance reminded me of her for some reason.



  75. 75

    Total garbage.



  76. 76

    Did anyone even try to listen to the song? It SUCKED, regardless of her crap theme.



  77. 77

    This is why I don't watch the grammys. Garbage passes as talent these days. I can't stand Lady Goo Goo, Katie Dumb Dumb or Nicki MaDouche….Just untalented tricks on stage.



  78. 78

    Re: Bluey67 – AMEN!!!!!!



  79. 79

    Was it supposed to be a joke? I wondered if Drake saw the performance before he said that intro.



  80. 80

    Re: RichieG – i know what you mean i get it too but people who havent heard all her songs just wont, at first i thought wow that was mad then when i watched again i realised she is an actual genius. i dont think the singing was supposed to be amazing, roman is supposed to be crazy i think that was a way of showing that. she is talented like we have seen from other songs, shes making it intersting by havin these crazy alter egos. Adele is good but you cant have every artist the same that would be waaay boring. Nicki I salut you!
