    And that hair! Ch- Terrence slayed tonight too.

  5. Blanco Family May 4, 2011

    ZERO stage presence, why is she singing. LEAVE IT TO THE PROS. and nice homage to Lil Kim with the Green Wig.

  6. True Blue May 4, 2011

    She’s quite uninteresting live.

  7. DestinyBoston May 4, 2011

  8. Lioness May 4, 2011

  9. ME222 May 4, 2011

  11. Dave May 4, 2011

    She looked the damn fool with the bob, & she is very uninteresting live. Sometimes she does do ok though or good. I agree with @ME222 that was weak sauce.

  12. woodlumboy May 4, 2011

    i feel like she could really sing if she would just sing

  13. Lifee May 4, 2011

    Did feel the performance..

    Bad singing.

  14. google me May 4, 2011

    I love it. Of course you kim fans will be in here criticizing. The hair was cute in a weird type of way.

  15. whitneydiva78 aka QueenWhitney May 4, 2011

    I wish Niki would hit up that b**** Whitney in a song.

  16. KoreanDream May 4, 2011

    What the f***, Nicki!? Why are you performing “Moment 4 Life” and not your current single, “Super Bass”?!

    I can’t 🙁

  17. Big Ro May 4, 2011

    Horrible rapping/singing! Hell yeah I’m a Lil Kim fan and WHAT!

    Not hating just telling the TRUTH. She’s a mess and horrible w/ those wack ass poppin eyeballs and weak rhymes. Swagger jacker to the fullest. Can’t imitate the true Queen B!

  18. KoreanDream May 4, 2011

    I don’t understand why you Lil Kim fans/stans insult Nicki and act like she got everything from Lil Kim but yet say that Nicki is horrible and way below Kim’s caliber. It’s completely contradictive.

  19. D May 4, 2011

    i liked it

  20. Blanco Family May 4, 2011

    @KOREANDREAM u need to face the facts here 1. nicki swagger jacks lil kim (short green wig) < 100% KIM 2. Nicki lacks stage presence she is BORING 3. homegirl cannot sing. lets keep it 100. not all of us are under her spell so were are not going to lie for hrer. we are not going to sugarcoat anything.

  21. are YOU serious? May 4, 2011



    THAT B**** IS DEAD AND A HAS BEEN!!!!!!!

    HANG IT UP B****!!!









  22. True Blue May 4, 2011

    @ Renaissance Woman:

    It’s their way of saying she’s a poor man’s version of their fave. In a sense it IS a contradiction, and then in another sense it isn’t. It would however be only completely contradictory if it were Nicki fans saying Kim sucks and at the same time admitting she’s heavily influenced by Kim.

    Mind you, I’m not taking sides either way here, I’m just breaking it down for you. But the contradiction that you speak of does happen quite frequently among fans of other artists.

  23. cartoon minaj May 4, 2011

    She sucks. So sad she is already forgotten. People are tired of her nasty outfits. Garbage

  24. SmoothCriminal May 4, 2011

    nicki doing her thing as usual,and for the people who be saying she should have did supa base,the people requested nicki and ask for this song, so that,s why she did it on the the show,i like the way the dancers was in the performace they mix in well.

  25. Beyonce and Cb Fan May 4, 2011


    Not a fan of Kim or Kim part 2…..BUT are you really going to say Nicki is Not a carbon copy of Kim?!
    The main reason kim and fans etc are still ticked at Niki is because (Kim) she did it better, was the first and she’s (niki)trying to act like she invented the barbiz crap and crayola wack outfits

    In other words Kim just wants her barbie clothes back, rap shine and love from her fans that have went to Kim part 2. They forgot about the real Barbie, kim.

  26. KaVion May 4, 2011

    My boo<3

    Lil Kim stans haven't gone extinct yet? I'm sure they're malnutritioned, their fave has left them starving, while she hunts Nicki.

    They need to keep y'all isolated like the rest of the world's endangered species.

    Pray for the lost, children of god, pray for the lost.

  27. SmoothCriminal May 4, 2011

    cartoon minaj you sure you an’t mixing up nicki with lil kim?so take that some were else and your little spec on the glass don’t represent the word,so don’t run on here talking about everyone is tired of nicki minaj,you damn well don’t speak for me,because i am sure as hell isn’t tired of nicki so you can fall back with that tantrum you just displayed.

  29. noodles May 4, 2011

    I love Nicki but what exactly is she doing on DWTS? And performing Moment For Life? What about that screams Dance track? Super Bass would have been a better choice. She is still good though.

  30. noodles May 4, 2011

    I guess she doesn’t have to be able to dance to be on the show…would make more sense though. I really wanted Super Bass…it would have been a better choice. And I wasn’t a fan of the wig here…

    Her live performances have gotten better in my opinion though.

  31. MISHKA May 4, 2011

    Is Trent leaving ThatGrapeJuice ??????????? Sam, did you fire him or something? What is going on, guys?

  32. Angelyc_Aries May 4, 2011

    This beef between artists and stans is ridiculous. If nicki is copying or ‘jacking’ kim by wearing color wigs, then lil kim jacked Celia Cruz and needs to pay her royalties. People are stupid if they think kim own wigs. So are you saying no one can rock an afro because Chaka Kahn did it first? Grow up. Lil kim didn’t start ANYTHING. Thee were female rappers/emcees, and hopefully there will continue to be more after her. What exactly did kim start? Tappimg about s**? No one owns that.

    Once Nicki starts getting plastic surgery out the wazoo to her face and boobs, and starts sleeping with a married man, THEN we can discuss Nicki being a copycat; otherwise this argument is null en void.

    And Sam/thatgrapejuice, you REALLY need to work on the mobile component of your phone. It sucks right now.

  33. Angelyc_Aries May 4, 2011

    *mobile component of your site for smartphones.

  34. Nemo May 4, 2011

    i dont like the wig being that short, and that color. She would’ve rocked that whole outfit if she was wearing her signature black wig. i liked the performance.

    i heard that super bass is finally premiering on thursday!:)

  35. Geronimo Deuces-Champion May 4, 2011

    good job nicki

  36. Blanco Family May 4, 2011

    @BEYONCECBFAN thats exactly how i feel and that sums up the beef and frustration PERFECTLY.
    people like kavion lack maturity. can u not have a discussion using intelligence? you need to deal with the fact that people are not under nicki’s spell ther not going to lie for nicki minaj and co sign every single thing she does.
    Nicki is a carbon copy of Lil Kim. in other words the new age Lil Kim the 2011 Lil Kim.
    Lil Kim is not even DEAD. imagine how Kim feels. Kim started all of this .. shes the reason you Love nicki minaj so much .. nicki even said she wants to fill kims shoes . nicki remixed most of kims songs. so when u hate on Lil Kim ur hating on Nicki Minaj

  37. theman May 4, 2011

    This is probably her best if not one of her better performances, she was more comfortable, and performed well. The singing is autotuned, and could use a little more work, but over all she looked comfortable. She’s crossing over like crazy.

  38. cold heart May 4, 2011

    @blanco Family. Get over it. Kim is making herself look so dumb. Why can’t she just make music and prove shes better than Nicki, that shes the winner instead of talking mad s***. Prove that Nicki is a fake, copy cat, ect by winning.
    Make a hot song that can enter one of the billboard charts, make an album not or paypal but for billboards, jump on a hot song that can help make a billboard hit. Collab with the other female rappers that can’t seem to get on. open on a tour for an up and comming artist. Something. That’s all ppl wanna see. Because shes only hurting her own legacy. Then she can talk all the s*** she wants about Nicki.

    If shes so good and Nicki stole from her, steal it back dammit. Kim needs to stop with the excuses.

  39. LilKimisthe#1femaleMC May 4, 2011

    Iki dont have s*** on the Queen B., Lil Kim will and always will be the number #1 b**** in the rap game iki looked like a broken chandelier with a geen wig thrown on it, and that b**** ass looks like she is soiled and incontinent with a dirty catherter I can’t stand her so Im gon sit down and talk about this b**** she is sooooo over rated and her style if a laugh and she looks stupid with a f***** up voice she wont have this moment for life because she is playing OUT. and f*** all the lame ass b****** who like that ugly horse teeth m***** looking b**** yeah my b**** Kim told me to write this.

  40. “You cheap stocking cap glued $10 bag hair wig wearing b*tch. May 4, 2011

    Nicki Minaj is a clown I don’t know how y’all take her seriously.

  41. “Indian hair don’t come in Green B*tch” May 4, 2011

    I am so sick of Nicki Minaj.

  42. LilKimisthe#1femaleMC May 4, 2011

    That b**** had on a quick weave she did herself I saw them tracks cheap ass b****!!!

  43. Perrylicious May 4, 2011

    This b**** is amazing!
    Love her so much…Lil Kim who?

  44. LARRY May 4, 2011

    I wouldn’t pay my parents’ money to see this woman live in concert, I hope she decides to lipsynches like the person she’s opening for – there’s no sign of vocal ability.

  45. Black Blanco May 4, 2011

    Lmao this b**** looks a fool & have no stage presence..Sorry for those who spend their money and call this weak ass b**** a entertainer..Oh wait that wig??? $10 glued wig hair wearing b****

  46. Travers McFarland May 4, 2011

    Nicki i love you.. 1ne love..$

  47. JiGRAND May 4, 2011

    How yall gonna say Nicki has no stage presence from ONE performance? Seriously c’mon.

    Check the videos to the I AM STILL MUSIC II tour that she’s just off and tell me she has no stage presence.

    As for Lil Kim.. I don’t understand anything she’s about. Can’t yall see the ONLY time Lil Kim is even back in news/blogs is when it’s got something to do with Nicki. If she tweets something aimed at Nicki, if she makes ANOTHER Nicki diss (USING NICKI’S OWN TRACKS). The b**** is ice cold and is now making her living off someone elses sucesss.

    Lil Kim could have went down a ledgend in the business, instead she’s gone down as a sore ass weak loser. At the end of the day.. look at it this way.

    Yall may be able to come at Nicki on a blog post of her performance on a primetime show, but where is Kim’s performance posts? Oh wait.. Theres NONE. And thats because NO ONE GIVES A F*CK ABOUT THAT HAS BEEN. Game, over.

  61. Mr.Q May 4, 2011

    It wasnt her best… but good look on performing on DWTS! That’s a whole different age group there and watching and that means more exposure.

    “Keep on climbing to the top” Nikki M!

  62. LOLK May 5, 2011

    Grape juice what is so high profile about performing at DWTS. This woman is pure garbage, black people dont have standards how do you go from Lauryn Hill to this. No stage presence, very stiff, bad singing, weak rapping, mediocre lyrics, ridiculous outfits and wigs. FOOLISHNESS AT BEST, I GIVE UP ON BLACK PEOPLE.

  63. Big Ro May 5, 2011

    I don’t know why peeps on this site ALWAYS GOT TO RESPONSE TO MY COMMENTS on here??? WTF is going on??? Really….

    Post your comment and leave it alone. Everyone has an opinion and as you can see I got mine.

    Hummmm…this just gave me a great idea!

    Stay tuned….

  64. Big Ro May 5, 2011

    May 4, 2011 at 2:09 am

    Thanks for the backup on here. I agree peeps thing we on here to lie and kiss ass for artists. Da truth is da truth….plain & simple. Not hating but peeps feel that unless you kiss ass then it’s HATIN’. Get out of here Nicki-zombies.


  65. BLANCO May 5, 2011

    minaj has no stage presence
    she doesnt deserve the level shes at right now
    shes just average!


  66. Chelsea May 6, 2011

    she has zero stage presence and is very annoying. I am still surprised at what lil wayne was sipping

  67. st May 6, 2011

    Lil c*** (ragedy ann) and her fans are just stupidity personified.How can Nicki take the stage when the idea was for the contestant to dance and take to the all dont have any job just like your mentor,that is why you blog about Nicki in every site and are always the first to lay your s***** comments like it matters.i guess some people live for others.

  68. EX NICKI FAN May 23, 2011

    @ Noodle, she’s on here to hurt Kim…she’s singing this song to say “you can’t affect me” and when she said to the camera ” sorry you couldnt phase me” she’s directing it to Kim…I’m finally beginning to see what Kim is talking about. Nicki is a horrible person and her whole career is based off, influenced by and in contest with lil kim.

    People think her whole ” i’m crazy” thing is just a gimmick. I dont think so.

  69. ElEcTrIk BaRbIe June 27, 2011
