The 30-year-old rapper flew into a rage during last night’s results show after contestant Curtis Finch Jr polled the lowest votes alongside Devin Velez.
On hearing that Curtis was in jeopardy Nicki raged: “I definitely think Curtis should not be in the bottom two.
“I mean, I love Devin but I think that Curtis, if you look at every one of his performances, I mean - come on, America, are you kidding me?”
“I didn't think that your performance last night was your best, I think it was your worst.
“Curtis, if you go home, I go home.”
However, Nicki received a further blow when Ryan Seacrest revealed that Curtis had in fact received the lowest votes and would be leaving the competition.
Nicki then leapt up from her seat from behind the judging desk and stormed off set.
