"I don't really have a problem saying 'no,' because we're looking for the best of the best," the eccentric rapper-singer told reporters Tuesday morning at the TV press tour in Pasadena.
Check out a few tweets from TV Critics that attened the American Idol TCA Session.
@BastardMachine: Nicki Minaj just proved - seriously - that she's going to be the best judge since Simon. Way better than Britney, etc. There's hope here.
@realityblurred: No joke: @NickiMinaj is sounding like the smartest reality TV music competition judge ever. She gets it. #Idol
@AnnaJKlassen: Nicki Minaj is whispering secrets to Keith Urban and Mariah Carey, who are now giggling like school children. #TCA13 @AmericanIdol
In spite of the onstage antics, must say that when she has the chance, NickiMinaj is giving us very thoughtful responses. #tca13 #fox #Idol
@tbrick2: I am actually really liking Nicki and Keith's answers, both seem to understand that this is a job. #Idol #TCA13
@KateAurthur: Nicki Minaj is full of logic and wisdom, seriously.
@thesurfreport: Nicki Minaj was the most interesting person in this #Idol session. Hands down. I may watch more #Idol this season because of her.
