Nicki Minaj Hands Out Hilarious Nicknames to ‘Idol’ Contestants

What’s in a name? Nicki Minaj has plenty of alter egos—Roman Zolanski, Harajuku Barbie, and Lap Dance Nika—and she was happy to bestow nicknames on the “American Idol” contestants. During last night’s auditions, “Idol” compiled a reel of some of her most hilarious names.

There was Gumby, Curly, Booby Trap, Bunny, Top Hat, Purple Boy, Edgar Allen Poe, Collared Greens, and last but not least, Big Crazy Barb, who Nicki named one of her favorites.

See just some of the colorful nicknames bestowed on the contestants by the eccentric judge.
