No one can control traffic in Los Angeles, but you'd think Nicki Minaj would be better prepared than this!
American Idol did a live show on Wednesday night, but Minaj was nowhere to be found when cameras started rolling. 'We are coming to you live and on time," Ryan Seacrest joked at the start the show. "Say hello to three of your four judges who have made it here on time."
Seacrest motioned towards Minaj's empty seat and said, "I hear she is seven minutes out and there is some congestion on the 405, she should be here momentarily." As expected Mariah Carey looked irritated and shook her head in disbelief as Seacrest introduced the top ten contestants.
"Which one of you gave Nicki the wrong directions today? Which one of you drained the fuel from her car?" Seacrest joked.
Minaj finally showed up 13 minutes into the show, missing Curtis Finch Jr.'s performance, but no one else said anything about her being late. Maybe Mariah piped up and put her in her place?
