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.
