It took a mere 127 minutes Thursday night for Fox to crown the winner of the 12th season of American Idol. So who took home the title, Kree Harrison or Candice Glover? Keep reading to find out.
Even after contestants are sent home from American Idol, they apparently still get feedback from judge Nicki Minaj.
Minaj went on a Twitter rant Friday after Devin Velez was eliminated Thursday night because the judges opted not to use their one save of the season on him. "America r the 'potential' fans...u MUST win them over. "Saves" are bullsh-- and they know it. Those girls are just too good this year," Minaj tweeted Friday.
Anyone who tunes into American Idol regularly knows that this season sometimes feels like The Nicki Minaj Show. Among the new blood that's been injected into the judges panel this season, Minaj is hands down the most polarizing. Keith Urban is the surprisingly astute critic, Mariah Carey is the softie who finds something positive to say about even the most dismal performances, and Nicki is ... well, Nicki. She's unprofessional (showing up late to a job that requires about five hours of her time every week), overdramatic (threatening to walk off the show after Curtis Finch, Jr. was eliminated last week), and often inappropriate in her comments to the singers (too many examples to pick just one).
She also may be the best thing that's happened to the contestants in years.
