Nicki Minaj & David Guetta Open the 2011 AMAs [Video]

Nicki Minaj and David Guetta kicked off the 2011 American Music Awards by pumping up the volume. The French DJ led into the Harajuku Barbie’s grand entrance for a rendition of their single “Turn Me On.” Speakers implanted into her backside, Nicki plugged in during their joint performance, descending on a platform to join her backup dancers.

During the rap portion of the track, the pink-haired diva cozied up to her dancers in a web of lights, segueing into her smash “Super Bass.” With Guetta behind turntables, she showed off her dance moves between two giant robots decked in LED lights and smoke-spewing pipes as Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez sang along in the audience.
