First "Idol" Finalist Cut -- Nicki Minaj Nearly Walks Off Show!

0314_curtis_insetNicki Minaj has had her fair share of antics on "American Idol" this season: fighting with fellow judge Mariah Carey, flirting with contestants, and arriving late to Wednesday's live taping.

So when she dramatically proclaimed to contestant Curtis Finch Jr. during Thursday's elimination, "If you go home, I'm going home," it seemed like another attention-grabbing move.

I thought Curtis was the weakest singer on Wednesday, so it was no surprise to me when Ryan Seacrest announced he had the least votes.

However, Nicki seemed to be in disbelief, mouthing the words "wow" and "bye" to the other judges and getting out of her chair as if she were leaving.

Keep in mind, just minutes earlier, Nicki had agreed it was Curtis' worst performance. Also, his performance on Wednesday was the one she MISSED due to traffic. Watch how it all unfolded:



The judges couldn't agree to use their one and only save of the season on the first finalist, so Curtis was sent packing. If Nicki got so upset over Curtis' (deserved) elimination, one can only guess how she'll react when her other favorites are cut.

The "Idol" producers revealed how all the other contestants fared. Unsurprisingly, standouts Candice Glover, Kree Harrison and Angie Miller were the top three.

Lazaro Arbos was a surprising fourth (America seems to be basing their voting on his backstory rather than his performances), while Amber Holcomb was fifth. Janelle Arthur, Burnell Taylor, Paul Jolley and Devin Velez took the remaining places.

In general, I think America voted appropriately. The girls are completely dominant this season, and I wouldn't be surprised to see a Candice/Kree or Candice/Angie finale. Who did you like best? Did Nicki overreact? Tell toofab in the comments below!
