Nicki Minaj Lipsynchs American Idol Performance Of Starships!

| Filed under: American IdolNicki Minaj

Oh, Minajesty!

Y'all know we LOVE us some Nicki Minaj, but… we gotta keep it real!

The Queen of Rap performed her new song, Starships, which is 90% "sung" and she completely lipsynched that whole 90%! And not even well!

If you're going to lipsynch, at least hold the microphone close to your mouth and try and make it not so obvious!

Check out Nicki's performance above!

Still love her!

    And this is news how? She didn't even attempt to lip-sync the chorus. The mic was away from her face half the time. The only people who sang live on Idol outside of former contestants were Rihanna and God bless her, Katy Perry.

    she is not lipsynchs, this is live and that's her backing vocal, she was only screaming with words that I don't understand or say hey ! hey ! hey !

    Its not actually classed as lip-synching this. Its a well known technique for singers to have their pre-recorded backing track playing so that if they are dancing or moving around a lot the backing track can still play but they can breathe. She was live on the rap part but sang over her backing track sometimes.

    You didn't have a problem with Madonna lip synching her entire Super Bowl half time show though did you? That's right, because she (or her management) have you on the payroll. It's very obvious since you only say nice things about her now and you've completely dropped Lady Gaga entirely - you didn't even wish her a Happy Birthday. I don't think I've read anything on this site about Lady Gaga since last year. I'm sure this is all part of the deal with Madonna's management though. It all makes sense to me.

    Anyways, I love Madonna and I'm a huge fan and I actually don't care when she lip synchs because she usually has good reason to (when doing heavy choreography or performing in a stadium like the super bowl where live vocals would sound completely off), but I'm just making the point that you have terrible fake consistency. In other words, your giving away all your secret deals by being ok with Madonna's lip synching but not with Nicki Minaj's. It makes you look extremely fake. In defense of Nicki Minaj - this performance was not that bad and she did actually sing live for most of the performance but of course with backing vocals. I'm pretty sure 95 percent of all the pop girls nowadays sing live with backing vocals, nothing new. I still enjoy coming to your site Perez but I just know now that a corrupt politician has more credibility than you.

    They all lip-synch!! It's about time people realised it's not just Britney that does it. And of all people who NEED to lip-synch, Rihanna does!! Terrible voice.

    I'm so tired of these ridiculous artists trying to look as fucking stupid as they can, and getting praised for it. Enough is enough! Katy Perry and her stupid ass hair, Gaga and her outfits, Nicki Minaj and her whole damn self. When Britney introduced the pink wig in 2007 everyone called her insane and now everyone does it and they're "cool". Society has gone downhill.

  12. 12

    LOL this was her best performance to date..and if she was a guess judge on that show maybe the ratings would go back up..lol nicki is beautiful I love her please follow me back @chrisinhisfort muahhhh

  13. 13

    The verses are not lipsynched! And the chorus obviously is 50% Minaj + 50% pre-recorded.

  14. 14

    what ppl don't realize is that she worked very hard to get where she is now!! all she wants to d is take a breather and relax she made it u didn't thats why ur sitting on ur laptop eating dongs hating..GO Nicki ur the best!!!

  15. 15

    your completely wrong! she didn't sing her choruses lots of artist including lady gaga lipsynch to playback choruses. And her mic was on, you made it sound like she completely pulled a Britney.

  16. 16

    Epic fail, but no surprise.

  17. 17

    She tries too hard to be like a drugged up Mariah (in terms of her 'performing'). The campy walk and the stretched out arm… The song is kinda cool though.

  18. 18

    Also, this performance highlights with rappers should not do this sort of music. They simply don't know how move to this sort of beat.

  19. 19

    yeah but her boobs looked great…but they're fake too…

  20. 20

    I'm shocked that no one is talking about those balloons on her chest that almost popped out, never mind her lipsynching. She actually turned around at one point to adjust them!!!!

  21. 21

    Can you please stop calling her the Queen Of Rap! She's the 'hottest' female rapper at the moment, which can always change, but Nicki hasn't solidified enough to make her the Queen.

    Use Lil' Kim, or Missy Elliott as a reference to Queens of Hip Hop. Women who have broken down barriers for FEMCEES today.

    worthless piece of shit white woman, no talent, no skills, NO CLASS

    Re: _eriicc – u have to forgive perez. he has a condition called *i still think i'm 14*

  26. 26

    Yeah & I heard she has been sick battling a sore throat. Google it. So UM kind of mean of you to be bashing the woman when she could have just canceled. Why don't you go back to picking on the no talnet whores like Paris Hilton & Mafugly Kardashian (take your pick) & leave Ms. Minaj alone. That was rude & uncalled for Perez.

  27. 27

    What do you expect from someone with a fake ass?

  28. 28

    She looks more suited to RuPaul's Drag Race.

  29. 29

    The Queen of Rap? Just because she is black does not make her a rapper, most of her work is POP. Plus, she has only been around for a few years, there are other female rappers out there that deserve the Queen title.
    I also dont understand why they let the performers lipsynch when the contestants have to do every song live.

  30. 30

    God you are so annoying. Madonna superbowl? 100% lip-synced. Perez - you are so weird.

  31. 31

    she was not lip syncing, she just didn't sing her choruses and had the backtrack play.

  32. 32

    Quite big tits.

  33. 33

    yeah… she didn't look like she was trying to fool us.

  34. 34

    I thought BLACK PEOPLE were supposed to be able to DANCE?!?! WHA???????

    Re: raypearson – What does her race have anything to do with it? She is not even white. Last time I checked she was darker than white! Ignorance at its finest

    if u listen closely, she isnt lip syncing. She is singing along to a backing track. It happens all the time, its just that backing track on the chorus was too loud but u cn still hear her signing. And a ton of artists dont sing the chorus and let the track sing the chorus because its too hard to sing all of that and dance and entertain. so everyone calm down
