During Thursday’s taping of American Idol, Nicki Minaj threatened to walk off the show after contestant Curtis Finch, Jr. was eliminated.

Curtis Finch, Jr. is a fan favourite and Nicki Minaj’s favourite contestant on the show.

Finch’s performance on Wednesday was criticised heavily by the judges in the absence of Nicki Minaj, who turned up 15 minutes late.
