Last night, The Billboard Awards came on television and Nicki Minaj was the opening performance. The 9 minute performance began with a medley of her old songs with dancers performing. It started with little girls with pink wigs dancing and so on. Nicki only performed her latest singles and features. Take a look at the performance and then we’ll talk.

Let me start by congratulating Nicki for upgrading her team. Also I am glad that she finally has a better creative director and stylist. There is a clear difference in her brand across the board. Her hair is better. Her make up looks a lot more natural versus like a clown. Her style looks are more flattering to her body. Her body is in better shape. Her visuals are better productions than usual.

But….here is the thing, her performance ability is still lack luster. On the “No Frauds” video, the potential was there, but better part of the visual was the location. When it came to her performance in the video, she was stiff. On the “Light My Body Up” video she was stiff and her video lip syncing is horrible. That video performance could have been a lot better on her part.

The point I am getting at is this, you can tell she is thinking too much during a performance. If she would just release the tension and let herself go, she will perform much better. So as much as the stage was great, her wardrobe was great, and she looked great, the performance could have been better on her part.

What do you think?
