Nicki Minaj has had an incredible year, and now she’s about to have another “Moment 4 Life.” The Young Money raptress will perform for the first time at the Grammy Awards.

The “Super Bass” hitmaker has been added to the prestigious lineup along with Bruno Mars, Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson, Foo Fighters, and Taylor Swift. She is nominated four times in categories including Best New Artist and Best Rap Album for her multi-platinum debut Pink Friday.

“Happy to welcome @nickiminaj as a first-time performer on our GRAMMY Awards stage on Feb. 12!” tweeted the official Grammys account.

    @NickimFanss, I’m TeamLilKim but I hope this performance goes well :) I don’t like her two singles from ‘Roman Reloaded though’ so I hope she performs “Turn me on” with David or “You Da Boss” or that new song with Sean Kingston.

    BIG NO to —-> “Stupid Hoe” and “Roman in Moscow”

    @WRTW?, prolly turn me on or va va voom

    [Reply]

    Somerandomguy Reply:

    @WRTW?, Turn Me On! But she will more than likely release her first single for Roman Reloaded by then and will probably perform that.

    GottaBeMusic Reply:

    @Somerandomguy, I thought see already released her first single from that. Was “Roman In Moscow” a buzz single or something?

    [Reply]

    ATT Reply:

    @GottaBeMusic, Roman In Moscow and Stupid Hoe were buzz singles. The 1st Official single Va Va Voom should drop sometime next week.

    Turn Me On (For sure), Super Bass (For sure), Her 1st OFFICIAL single off the album (possibly)
    All in all I just want her to SLAY!!! Her music and image got her this far, I’d just be so happy for her if she kills this performance! :D

    [Reply]

    Brandon Reply:

    @Fala1, Agreed! I hope she stuns us all and makes us proud. She has so much potential. Just being asked to perform is an honor in itself.

    I want her to practice every day for the Grammys. She better have her vocals on point, please no crazy outfits and perform a suitable song.

    I don’t want to see another of her GMA performances.

    I HAVE YET TO SEE A SUCCESSFUL PERFORMANCE BY THIS GIRL, & YES IVE SEEN HER PERFORM LIVE, AND ITS JUST AWFUL. ITS HER 1 MAJOR FLAW. THIS CHICK BEGGING ANNA WINTOUR FOR A VOGUE COVER, & YET HER FIRST SINGLE IS TITLED ‘STUPID HOE’??? AIMED AT KIM & WHOEVER. LIKE SHE NEEDS TO FIND HERSELF & TRY TO REALIZE WHO EXACTLY SHE WANTS TO BE… THE NEXT GRACE KELLY OR SUM HOOD CHICK WITH A PINK WIG NAMED SHE’NAENAE.

    THE WHITE PPLE (GRAMMY’S & VMA’S) PICK HER BECAUSE SHES CURRENT & POPULAR. NOT BECAUSE THEY ALL GO HOME BUMPING PINK FRIDAY. GET IT REAL

    @BEDSTUYFLY,why are you screaming,it,s plain that her and her music are whatever she is doing have nothing to do with you,stop the screaming man and go pay attention to your own life.

    @BEDSTUYFLY, She did well at the AMAs. Look at the youtube clip.

    [Reply]

    ATT Reply:

    @BEDSTUYFLY, Yeah and She’s “Current and Popular” because they enjoy her music/performance. How else would she be “Current & Popular” you just a hater. She did well at the AMAs, She did well Live are Carson Daly on New Years so I know she’ll do fine at the GRAMMYs.

  14. moomoo

    IF NICKI DOES NOT SING HER FIRST OFFICIAL SINGLE (VA VA VOOM) THEN SOMEONE NEEDS TO BITCH SLAP DIS HOE.

    No really though, if all she sings is Turn Me On/Super Bass, I’ll be really pissed. This is probably the greatest opportunity so far (besides Super Bowl) to promote her new material.

    Maybe that’s why she’s been holding on to it? Saving it for late January/pre-Grammy date? LET’S HOPE BARBZ.

    Somerandomguy Reply:

    @Shade, Why she dominated this year, don’t worry about Super Bass most of her album is pure hip hop and she has some really meaningful songs on there.

    [Reply]

    Shade Reply:

    @Somerandomguy, Not saying she didn’t her album was good but It was not better than the other albums up for nomination. WOuldn’t mind too much if Pink Friday beat Tha carter IV or Lasers but if it beats Watch The Throne and MBDTF then…yeah all hope is lost.
