    Slayed as always!!!!

    • Honestly Speaking July 14, 2012

      Then you are easily impressed by nothing more than a blonde weave/wig, horrible off-key singing, and a silicone inflated ass. Hopefully your musical taste will improve.

    • THE LEGENDARY LAX July 14, 2012

      She did good

    • Brandon Likewhoa Gilliam July 14, 2012

      She looked uncomfortable, her n****** where out, and she lip synced. Although she lipped..it still sounded off key as if they are trying to catch a certain… audience.

  2. MIXKULA July 14, 2012

    no panties alert!

  3. Kingphoenix July 14, 2012

    LMFAO. I was going to give this girl a chance, but in the first 30 seconds it so obvios that this b**** is lip-synching to the goods! Like how do you lip-sync your rap lines tho? B****, reallly? Bwaaahhaaa..

  4. Honestly Speaking July 14, 2012

    Trash. She looks like a ghetto flop hooker…as usual.

      • Katie July 14, 2012

        -_- You call that unimpressive and non iconic performance legendary???? Ugh stans these days………

    • Brandon Likewhoa Gilliam July 14, 2012

      I’ve seen better performances at a high school half time show. Over thought and under performed. She looked like a killer clown as usual.

      • Greg F July 15, 2012

        LMFAOO

  8. HeavyHeavy July 14, 2012

    wow she has really improved, this is the first performance i could watch and enjoy

  9. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) July 14, 2012

    Sorry nothing against her but she didn´t dance, her music is generic crap and she f****** lipsynced the whole thing. What a buch of generic crap put together. If she could dance hard or sing such difficult songs and notes, I could understand the lipsyncing, but why does this girl lip???
    A joke
    People please buy decent music. It´s the only way music industry can go back to the glory days. Talent reigning

    • FAF July 14, 2012

      HONEY, WHY DON’T YOU PUT OUT A FLOP – I MEAN POP ALBUM??? WH Y YOU SO WORRIED ABOUT THE QUEEN? GO BUY A JANIS D***-LIN ALBUM

    • truth July 14, 2012

    OMG THIS H** NEED TO DISAPPEAR. Anyway this performance is Better than some Goathanna who also need to disappear!

    • FAF July 14, 2012

      BOTH OF THEM LOOK BETTER THAN YOU…

    • TEAMMINAJBETCH July 15, 2012

      but shes successful and where are you? you should disappear no one will care if u disappear but if Nicki disappeared over 20 million people would be upset

  11. the real xoxo July 14, 2012

    how uninspiring and mediocre.

    • FAF July 14, 2012

      WHATS WRONG??? UNIMPRESSED BY A WOMAN’S BODY, F**??

      • Madison July 14, 2012

        Ok? Why do you need to be homophobic and crude to make a point about how that person doesn’t like the performance? Please use your brain and manners to make a civilized comment because that was distasteful.

  12. nobitchassness July 14, 2012

    I thought the performance was great.

    • KANG !!! July 14, 2012

      B**** ???????

  13. Jayyyyyyyy July 14, 2012

    Did anyone see how she was trying to lip sync to her live recording? Especially after the second verse when she says “oh! Oh! Oh!” she drops the mic and notices and puts the mic back to her face

    • FAF July 14, 2012

      NO, NOONE SAW IT BC IT DIDN’T HAPPEN F**… IF YOU WOULDA LOOKED AT IT ON TV YOU WOULD’VE SEEN THAT THE TRACK WAS THE INSTRUMENTATION, SHE PERFORMED EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE BACKING VOCALS…

      • Andrew July 14, 2012

        you need to relax for real. though i don’t agree that she was trying to lip sync to the backing track, it’s clear that she needs that backing track.

        Her rapping was almost all live, and though she did sing live at most times, she relied very heavily on the backing track to carry her, and would have been unable to deliver a performance without it. This is evidenced by the times when the volume of her vocals is so high the backing track is harder to detect (1:25-1:40) vs 1:40-1:46 when the track gets louder and then the hook which follows where the backing track becomes dominant over her live vocals because, as you can hear from 1:25-1:40 her live singing is pitchy at best.

        It’s a real shame how far down hill she’s gone… I loved her mixtapes and I even like this song, but I would respect her more if she just got someone else to do the singing because she was not born to be a singer.

      • shane July 14, 2012

        you called someone a f** over a nicki minaj post, you are officially the most ignorant dumbass ive ever encountered. congratulations.

  14. Virtuoso Intellect July 14, 2012

    Her performances always look like a comedy skit to me esp of these cheesy pop songs. The BET one >>

    • FAF July 14, 2012

      BEHOSAY NEARLY HAS CARDIAC ARREST EVERYTIME SHE PERFORMS #STOPIT THAT HO NEEDS A DIET & A WORKOUT PLAN.. .

  15. gio88 July 14, 2012

    is she a rapper?!

    • brandy fan from brazil July 14, 2012

      THATS WHAT I THOUGHT.LOL

    • truth July 14, 2012

      No she a b****

    • Greg F July 15, 2012

      No, I’m pretty sure she’s just a ratchet hooker

    • TEAMMINAJBETCH July 15, 2012

      f*** yall she da queen of rapping aand great at pop why do people have a problem with her being diverse

      • Flatlined July 16, 2012

        Girl, shut yo ass up. You’re either a preteen girl with teacup titties or a sissy. Either way, your life is a failure. Have a seat.

  16. Mobwife July 14, 2012

    Wait a damn minute! @3:45 she clearly moves her lips and mouths “POUND” but the backtrack starts with the word alarm! Now where are the media and blog complaints about her lip-syncing while doing nothing more but wigging her “tail-feather” in a circle?

    With at that said, Nicki actually looks cute and I like the performance lip-syncing at times or not. I just think it’s funny that one 1 person is constantly critcized while actually putting on a damn good dance routine/acrobatic/martial arts display! While others get praised and applauded for doing much less!

  17. Uommofatalle July 14, 2012

    This girl is insult to music. No talent whatsoever. Can’t rap, can’t sing, can’t dance, looks like a tranny mess. But I guess there will always be people with no class and education who will support this epitome of bad taste.

    • POP ROYALTY ( F*** Yo Fav) July 14, 2012

      THIS!

      • FAF July 14, 2012

        JUDGING FROM FATALE, YOUR IDOL HAS BEEN A STIFF WALKING BOARD FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS WHERE IS HER RELEVANCE??? *DEAD* THE QUEEN NICKII IS HERE TO STAY!!!!! STAY MAD!!!!

      • Greg F July 15, 2012

        All caps? Really?? What a ratchet disaster just like Nicki ……

    • Uommofatalle July 14, 2012

      Well you judge wrong, it has nothing to do with singer you implied. And you just proved my words are true “no class and education”

    • TEAMMINAJBETCH July 15, 2012

      b**** she da best rap and a f***** fantastic singer where is you or your fave asshole, umm not on her damn level or in her lane,get on her level before you talk s***

  18. jawon July 14, 2012

    Wtf did I just watched!? Why is she singing?

  19. POP ROYALTY ( F*** Yo Fav) July 14, 2012

    I Liked it tho. but something about her outfit i don’t know about , like i kept looking at her p**** directly 😛 !! y is that ?

    this song is for clubs and stuffs like that , so it being generic and trashy is what is desired i guess , i keep hearing it a lot of times in clubs, so ….

  20. VFB July 14, 2012

    Big difference from the BET 2012 Awards show. I guest she had to reconvert back to a POP STAR. A HOT MESS.

    • FAF July 14, 2012

      SHE’S MAKING $$$ WHILE YOU HATING SO I GUESS THAT MAKES YOU A “lLESSOR” LOL!!!!!!

      • Jessica July 15, 2012

        Look your GARBAGE MINAJ IS FLOPPING HARD!!! LMAO!!! SHE WILL BE GONE BY THE END OF THE YEAR AND THE REAL ARTISTS ARE COMING BACK!!! GOODBYE GARBAGE MINAJ!!! AKA SWAGGER JACKER!!!

      • TEAMMINAJBETCH July 15, 2012

        f*** jessica this b**** nicki is guna be here for 10 years

  21. Truth July 14, 2012

    Cant stand this B**** but I actually like the performance. She copyn kim again tho

  22. Nunu July 14, 2012

    the pop rapper lol

  23. Life July 14, 2012

    This is sad. What happened to the days when you needed to be able to sing? That is why I listen to the classics.

    • Greg F July 15, 2012

      They still exist hun, they’re just not all out fame-whoring it up so you don’t see them like that…. ex. Wynter Gordon, Azealia Banks

  24. Angie July 14, 2012

    That was super cute, but she can’t dance! Wow…still love her though.

  25. KAT DELUNA FAN July 14, 2012

    What the f*** is she wearing ?!
    The performance was alright in the “mediocre scale of today singers”.

    Cant knock her hustle tho but this outfit,girl bye !!

  26. BLACK MADONNA July 14, 2012

    SHE KILLED IT! GET EM NICKI.. HATERS MAAAAAAD LMAO

  27. -_- July 14, 2012

    OMFG I died when they did the conga! That s*** was lame as f***! 🙁 I quite like the song though

  28. QueenSize July 14, 2012

    Why wear an outfit that you know won’t fit you? Thank goodness for the pasties. And the blonde hair. Has she now had it transplanted to her scalp. She is definitely in Lil’ Kim mode. When Kim became such a success she wouldn’t stop with the blonde wigs. Sorry to hurt some of guys feeling but your girl looks ugly. No matter how pop she becomes she will never get the white chick pop status that she wants. Katy Perry, Gaga, Britney, Taylor Swift, P!nk, etc will never worry.

    • DaHotNig July 14, 2012

      B**** shut up!

  29. MusicB July 14, 2012

    I think she did a great job with this performance. I loved the dance routine, the dancers, the whole scenery was nice. A lot of female performers are starting to step it up now. GOOD JOB!

  30. TIMELESS July 14, 2012

    Nicki did a great job! You can really tell she has been practicing, and that is something i commend. Her “POUND THE ALARM” single is going to be a huge hit for her, no hate!!! And i like the CARNIVAL theme she rockin as well, Nicki needs to keep this up 🙂

  31. Josh July 14, 2012

    I think she did fine (:

    Love you Nicki!!

  32. Maad Moiselle July 14, 2012

    This is probably her best performance!!!!!!!
    She’s really growing and it shows…… good job Nicki!

  33. DIOB July 14, 2012

    WHAT THE F*** WAS THAT. That was terrible. That choreography was probably one of the worst I have seen. For her to have been in th spotlight since 2009 now this looks very amateurish. She needs to step it up becasue there was nothing good about this performance.

  34. catnipbitch July 14, 2012

    Mediocre.
    Girl can’t sing idk why she keeps trying

  35. Ugh July 14, 2012

    She did good I guess but the song is TRASH.

  36. Nick July 14, 2012

    It was cute., she’s slaying on all genres gotta love her genius ways love nicki!!

  37. The Zolonski Trap July 14, 2012

    She looks and did BOMB!! Sorry she’s slaying the charts, selling out shows and is the only female rapper out and achieving what no other ever has. You HATERZ always hope for the worst but always get the success. Go sweat somebody else and get off our d*** b******. We came to win, to rise, to conquer, to thrive. To fly and we soaring in this b****!!! #TeamMinaj Til the death of me.
    #HOVLane

    • Jessica July 15, 2012

      she is FLOPPING LIKE A PIECE OF BREAD!!! LMAO!!!

  38. nickiminaj July 14, 2012

  39. DaHotNig July 14, 2012

    I wish kim’s fans go find her and suck the silicone out of her cheeks and iron that old lumpy bruised ass! kim will NEVER be on Nicki’s level EVERRRRR! And Nicki is only going to get BIGGER and BIGGER! Nicki just performed in Manila for a sold out show of 20,000 people! kim has never and will NEVER sell out a show even if it’s in a classroom. Nicki is WINNING and you hating ass h*** can suck a long donkey d***!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Zoey July 14, 2012

      Stop being delusional

    • Jane July 14, 2012

      Just stop. First off, how dare you act disrespectful by comparing an icon like Lil kim( etc.) to an amateur and rookie like Onika. I don’t even like Lil kim but I still respect her like many other female rap veterans because she is very influential and paved the way for many female rappers especially your little Onika It doesn’t matter how much fame or how much money a person like Nicki has because that’s not what makes a person successful. If that were true than people like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashion (etc.) would be successful even though they have no talent. What makes a person successful is their talent , skills, hard work, and being the best (etc). Onika will NEVER be as successful as rappers like Jean Grae, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Lauryn Hill, The Lady of Rage, Missy Elliot, Left Eye, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown (etc.) so you can stop lying.

      • Jessica July 15, 2012

        AMEN!!! TELL THE TRUTH!!! GARBAGE NICKI WILL NEVER BE ICON CATEGORY!!!!

  40. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) July 14, 2012

    No shade, but the performance was horrible. She looked amateur. Still, the song is probably her best pop song to date (yes, I prefer it to ‘Super Bass’!) and the video is probably going to be hot, so she’ll redeem herself.

  41. YesIDIDBITCH July 14, 2012

    Wow this isn’t britney’s spears best, but hey it will do….

  42. badu weave July 14, 2012

    Female hiphop is dead in US…

  43. Brandon Likewhoa Gilliam July 14, 2012

    Mess.

  44. RDK July 15, 2012

    so full of energy like her grammy performance and such confidence i love it,she is getting more comfortable on stage and because of that everything is coming over natural and not like she is stage fright,she is enjoying her self just doing her thing and having fun and i love it,keep doing you nicki minag.

  45. Oggie ‘Singer’ July 15, 2012

    i give her 8 out of 10, it would have been 10/10 if she had warn a gold piece over the p**** area, the flesh coloured outfit is all good if you where the whole thing as flesh coloured but if you have gold over your boobs then it makes your p**** look naked if you hve nothing covering that too and thats NOT a good look, kids were watching and something just felt wroooong!!! other than that though she smashed it!

  46. QDF July 15, 2012

    My whole thing is if y’all don’t like Nicki Minaj then why do you click on anything with her name in it?

  47. KAKA July 15, 2012

    what is that outfit? my only concern with this chick is that she is so classless with all that meat moving up and down ! JESSS

  48. DONALD ZOLANSKI July 18, 2012

    NICKI IS A MOTHER FUKIN MONSTER!!!!! SHe FLIPPED THIS PERFORMANCE UP SIDE DOWN!!!!!! LOVE YOU Nick
