Nicki Minaj Performs ‘Right Thru Me’ On ‘Wendy Williams’

Published: Wednesday 17th Nov 2010 by Trent

Nicki Minaj performed on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ today. The reigning female MC did a rendition of her new single, ‘Right Thru Me’, from her upcoming ‘Pink Friday’ LP. Peep the performance below:

As expected, Minaj let her backtrack handle most of the singing aspect included in the song. She is a great rapper but she is not a major vocalist by any means. It’s safe to say that the Lauryn Hill comparisons are officially over.

    Nicki is herself, and not Lauryn. I do see Eve similarities.

    Ugh. Wendy looks like a man. How YOU doing? That performance was a HUGE YAWN. And this blog is so one dimensional. How come you guys don’t post about Adele’s new song?

  4. AinthatsomeSHHH November 17, 2010

    She can rap and she should stick to that. She sounded like Rihanna on a good day =/

  5. Shouw November 17, 2010

  6. Jermany November 17, 2010

  12. 3#$%@* November 17, 2010

    Nicki has no stage presence at all. She did the same weird flop performance at the VMA’s.

  13. dapope9 November 17, 2010

    i luv Nicki…but this performance sucked…especially that note!

  14. UMMM……….. November 17, 2010

    She’s pretty and semi-talented but really is this what’s being touted as a great live performance these days?

  15. Nichole November 17, 2010

    Lol @ The Kiddz. Doesn’t Wendy Williams look like a straight up tranny?

    I heard Pink Friday, and I was shocked at how good the album is. It looks like this album lived up to its hype after all. Therefore, I hope Nicki does well.

  16. Ummmmm November 17, 2010

    LMAO! That note was flat as hell towards the end that she tried to hit. No ma’am!

  19. Jamie November 17, 2010

    Everybody in that crowd including Wendy were deaf. Nicki, 4 words….NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!!!!!!

  20. GangsterA November 17, 2010

    smdh at trent how can she sing backround vocals and lead vocals at the same time she recorded the song like that its her first time peforming this song cut her some slak i think she did good the raping was great the look on point as usual when she tried to hit that note she satred a bit shaky but she nailded at the end decent her album is amazing pepole should check it

  21. kntmusiclover November 17, 2010

    lol..her attempt to harmonize with the track at the end was a lil funny. more practice.

  22. e_ponton November 17, 2010

    Rapping was great… but she’s just another drake when it comes to stage presence and the live vocals..

  23. Majesty November 17, 2010

    This Bytch SOUND better than rihanna….

  24. Malachi November 17, 2010

    She defiantly can’t sing live. She sounded Worse than Rihanna. She needs to rehearse more. One of the girls face in the Audience was like “What the hell is this chick trying!?”

  25. MUSIC LOVER November 17, 2010

    @ The Kiddz- Did you hear her new song “Someone Like You”? It’s breathtaking. Real music is not dead.

  26. Dave November 17, 2010

    Maybe I missed something. I don’t really care for her, but she def didn’t sound worse than Rihanna. She’s just not that great or strong of a vocalist. Her voice is good thou, ok at least

  27. lola November 17, 2010

    This was so damn boring! I skipped throughout the whole damn video! I was waiting for her to move but she didn’t. This is a hard song to perform since it’s so slow and has rapping verses, but she should have walked around and touched the audiences hands and gave more facial expressions and moved her hands. Her singing live sounds a mess. She sounded good on “You The Best” remix though. Her rapping was onpoint though. She sounded just like the track which oddly isn’t the case with most rappers. Most of them try to switch it up and end up sounding a hot shouting mess!

  28. Chinny November 17, 2010

    I love the way she said “Just let it go” at 1:45

  30. Speaks Truth November 17, 2010

  31. #YeahISaidIt November 17, 2010

    She better than Rihanna though but she gotta move around. She fine too

  32. Roab November 17, 2010

    Cough… s*** is parched like roasted peanut shells after watching that. Cassie part II …isn’t Diddy her manager? She needs to go to Danity Kane bootcamp! Make that thick lipped hooker run and sing…somebody call Aubry O’damn Day to show this fruit loop sucking chick something. Better yet, Lil kim needs to Tweet about this ish here. Awful!

  33. Sami November 17, 2010


  34. Beyonce-Stan November 17, 2010

    She has more stage presence than F******

  35. FUTURESTARdelux November 17, 2010

    Sorry this b**** has no stage presence at all! you can call (Queen) Kim a hasbeen all you want but even now when she’s performing she is all over the place going hard and having fun, this just goes to show that without the faces she is even more boring live than was frst thought… she looked nice though and PLEASE WAYNE… i mean WENDY looks like a f***** man and does she wear the same s*** every time?! LOL

  36. PINK FRIDAY NOV 22ND November 18, 2010

  39. Kimberly D Jones November 18, 2010

    Oh Gurl…..

  40. UGh November 18, 2010

    OMG Nicki. what the hell was that? was she not feeling well. you okay Nicki? Those facial expressions. I can’t

  41. TJ November 18, 2010

    Wow, that was terrible!!!!!

  42. AKEEMTHADREAM November 18, 2010

    i dont think she is vocally prepared to sing full force like i kno she can. to jump from rapping into the chorus of that song is a lot! thats why we’ve yet to see the performance of “your love”… daaamn she’s fresh in the game! beyonce first performance wasnt a plus either

  43. C November 18, 2010

    that was a near perfect performance, much better than some artist who claim to be singers and wreck the entire song when they’re live, even when standing still

  44. Wake Up Six November 18, 2010

    Me thinks @C is @Carl the ultimate NICKI STAN! I hope you are gonna buy up all them albums come RED Monday.

  47. TheDimplePuppet November 18, 2010

    LMAO @ these comment. Pretty YES. Style NO. Rap skills YES. Singing NO. Stage presence NO. Get it together Nicki I’m rooting for you.

  48. KIM’S WORLD November 18, 2010

    umm i saw that mess on tv….smh that note that note that note… she shouldve juss let tha damn backing do that.. its was very vma pre-show… smh RIRI’S VOICE IS WAY BETTER no no.. stick to whatever it is u do sweetie smh

  49. Carmen November 18, 2010

    I dont know about yall, but i see a lot of potential in Nicki Minaj as a performer, she just needs coaching. Some parts were shaky. She obviously doesnt need to dance on this song becuase its too much. Having some good background singers is enough.

    Peep how she was holding on tight to the mic and not opening up, she stood like a statue. Thats not being loose.

    I think she needs to learn how to loosen up a little and her vocals werent bad it just seems like she was holding back. When u hold back on your vocals they come out sounding shakey. Give her time, hopefully her team does right by her and gives her coaching and fixes the flaws she has because young money is just not ready for a performer like her. Who else does that pop sounding hip hop and includes dances tracks and vocals like that?

    @Kat Delun Fan: There is good artists out there, Nicki Minaj is amazing but when she sings her talent is taken as a joke!! There are people like: Beyoncè (RnB/Pop) Jenifer Hudson (RnB/Soul) Alicia Keys (Soul) Christina Aguilera (Pop/Soul) Britney ‘needs to make a comeback’ Spears (Pop)!!! Chris Brown (RnB/Pop) Neyo (I wish he would just stick to RnB but he is also Techno!!!) Usher(RnB/Technoish, he is getting old so he a little bit rusty) Keri Hilson (RnB/Soul) Trey Songz (RnB/S**… I mean Soul) Kanye West (Best Hip Hop/Rapper artist in the world, f*ck Eminem) Nicki Minaj (Hip Hop/Pop, the gal needs to stop singing though) Common (Amazing is a genre) Melanie Fiano (Soul) John Legend (Soul) TI (His flow is sick) Drake (Hip Hop, he can sing but he don’t sound that good) Lil Wayne (Hip Jop/Rock) These are the only good artists I can think of!!!! And don’t tell me about Jay Z, that cameled face… He can only throw punch lines!!! Beyonce divorce this guy, please, just the thought of him makes my fist ich!!! Katy Perry and Ke$ha aren’t real artists, they will be here for a while! *Sorry, I had to add the extra shade*
