Nicki Minaj Arrives Late To Idol Wearing Shades & Craving Waffles! Watch The HIGHlarity HERE!

Oh El Lay traffic!

Last night, American Idol presented its top ten finalists and at the start of the show, judge Nicki Minaj was nowhere to be found!

When the show went on at 8pm, Ryan Seacrest pointed out how only three of the four judges were seated at the table and made it clear that they were “live and on time.”

After Ryan explained that Nicki was late after getting stuck in traffic on the 405 coming from Malibu, her Minajesty arrived about 13 minutes into the show, missing Curtis Finch, Jr.’s performance!

Once Nicki finally did get seated at the judges’ table, she showed up wearing a black hoodie over her head, along with some shades that covered her eyes… and made no mention of her lateness!!!

We’re hearing that the Starships songstress was eventually asked to take the shades off, to which she said she, “had to check her eyes” first!

Did she not have time to get her eye makeup done or… ??? LOLz!

By the time Kree Harrison hit the stage, Nicki’s on camera antics were in FULL effect, which led Keith Urban to question what was in her cup!

Check out Nicki’s HIGHlarious waffle-making moment (above)!!

Ha! All while Mariah Carey divaliciously looked oh so unamused!!!

Following the judges’ critiques, Ryan uncomfortably asked Nicki what was in her cup and she answered, “syrup!”

Oops! Probably not the best thing to say… ! We’re sure Idol producers sat Minaj down for a little meeting afterwards!

The New Justin Bieber! A Puppet! Twerkin! Watch This Week's Idol Audition Fun HERE!

You gotta watch this kid!

Kayden Stephenson is like the personification of AMAZEballs! He's got the total package, PLUS a super inspiring story!!

At 16 years old, the mini Justin Bieber doesn't let his cystic fibrosis get in the way of his dreams, as he blows the American Idol judges away with his star power and talent!

Ch-ch-check him ouuttt (above)!!!

Doctors say he only has about 20 more years to live, but he and his parents (and obviously us) are hoping that medical advancements ensure that won't be the case.

Admitting "it's definitely scary," Kayden looks on the bright side when he realizes it gives him "an opportunity to do everything now" and says he's doing Idol because it's his dream.

And what we REALLY love about him is how you can tell he's legit about living life to the fullest when he shows the confidence to joke around with the judges.

Make sure you watch the video above, but don't forget about the rest of the best! Oklahoma City gave Idol a puppet audition, TWERKIN, the seXXXy Steven Tyler surprise, and more!!

Watch and see for yourself …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

American Idol Gets Graced With A Familiar, Gleeful Face!

Another week, another round of Idol auditions!

On Wednesday night, the Idol gang headed to San Antonio, Texas, and Long Beach, California, to hear even more hopefuls try and sing their way onto the show!

We hope tonight’s episode is much more uplifting, because there definitely was NO shortage of sob stories last night!

Between Matheus Fernandes — who many viewers recognized from The Glee Project — to Matt Farmer, a hot DILF and Iraq war vet… plenty of tissues were very necessary!

Check out Matheus’ story and audition (above)!!

Tears! Everywhere!

Matt Farmer also shared his story AND his super cute little daughter, Cadence, and was able to win over the judges, as well as Papa Peachez, a quirky “big black woman trapped inside a little boy's body.”

Take a look at these must-see auditions plus one that made Mariah Carey want to ring up her preacher… AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Nicki Minaj Turns Up The Twinkle On Idol… & Mariah Carey Is SO Over It! Watch HERE!

Twinkle, twinkle, little star!

We love this clip so much that we can't stop ourselves from watching it over and over and OVER again! LOLz!

Nicki Minaj was up to her usual antics during Idol’s Chicago auditions last week and there’s one part of the episode we just cannot resist!

Check out the HIGHlarious clip (above)!!

We mean… there’s just so much going on here, Perezcious readers!

Between Nicki’s affected British accent with Mariah Carey groaning and throwing in some divalicious hair shade, to Randy Jackson saying “Mmm! Twinkle!”, we just HAD to!

And then there’s Keith Urban, just sitting there during Johnny Keyser’s audition, immune to all that goes on in his new dysfunctional Idol family!

Wonder what Nicariah moments await us tonight?!

Idol Contestant Brings Panel To Tears & Another Gets Them All Fired Up In Chicago!

Well, American Idol’s season twelve premiere might not have gotten the ratings the network was looking for, but there has definitely been some standout talent!

You’d think after all these years of reality TV sob stories, we’d become desensitized… but that didn’t seem to be the case with last night’s episode!

One contestant, Lazaro Arbos had us — and the entire panel — all choked up with his inspirational story and beautiful voice!

Check out his absolute MUST-see audition (above)!!!

LOVES it! It reminds us of how music can do some truly amazing things!

Lazaro wasn’t the only hopeful though, to catch the judges by surprise with his story and vocals!

There was also Kezban, whose colorful personality and voice were more than memorable and then Kiara Lanier’s audition, which is worth a watch if only just for Nicki Minaj’s ladybug song! LOLz!

Take a look at these auditions and find out why one contestant got escorted out of the room… AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Idol Gets Graced By Super Bass Rapper, Bieber Wannabe & The Turbanator For Its Premiere!!

American Idol is back for its twelfth season and last night, the show aired its NYC auditions for its premiere!

New judges Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban made their debut, as Randy Jackson, the veteran of the bunch, returned to his familiar role!

By now, we’re all used to the format and formula and last night was no exception. The premiere had its share of sob stories, HIGHlarious auditioners and of course, some actual talent.

One hopeful in particular, Sarah Restuccio, belted out a Carrie Underwood number… and then BLEW the panel away with her rendition of Mz. Minaj’s Super Bass!

Check out Sarah’s audition (above)!!

Another singer with some beautiful vocals was Ashlee Feliciano, who the judges all seemed to take a liking to!

Then of course we had James Bae, or as he was referred to as, the Asian Justin Bieber and Gurpreet Singh Sarin — the Turbanator!

Take a look at their must-see auditions from last night… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
