Nicki Minaj Performs on ‘SNL,’ Watch Her Best Skits [VIDEO]
Nicki Minaj pulled off a double-duty on 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend. Not only did she perform three songs as the musical guest, she also showed off her comedic skills in three different hilarious skits. You go Nicki!
For her first musical set, the Queen Barbz performed 'Bed of Lies' with Skylar Grey on piano. Minaj, dressed in red pants and matching top, gave a subdued performance of the somber track as she let her heart-wrenching lyrics take hold of the audience.
However, in her second performance, Minaj hit the stage in an all-black lingerie outfit and high-heeled stilettos. Backed by a full band and two background singers, the 31-year-old rhymer spit a couple of fiery verses from 'Only' before seguing into equally abrasive track 'All Things Go.'
Of course, we all know that Minaj is a budding thespian and impressionist so it was only right that she participates in a few comedy sketches. The 'Pills N Potion' rapper played an overly dramatic Beyonce in a 'Jingle Ballerz' Christmas skit along with a fake Eminem, Rick Ross and Riff Raff playing the "Three Wise Men." In another skit, Minaj impersonates Kim Kardashian during a segment on 'Weekend Update.'
Overall, Nicki Minaj did a phenomenal job showing off her versatility as a rapper and actor. Her appearance on 'SNL' was good promotion for her upcoming album 'The Pinkprint,' which arrives in stores on Dec. 15.
