VIDEO: Nicki Minaj LEVITATES & EXORCIZES For "Roman Holiday" GRAMMY Performance

​ ​ ​ ​

Nicki Minaj "rapped" while suspended in mid-air (never seen that before) on the Grammys Sunday night for an over-produced performance of "Roman Holiday." Watch it inside....

Nicki Minaj (who arrived with "The Pope" & Sarafee) gave a churchy performance of "Roman Holiday" at the Grammys tonight.  And it seemed like she was attempting to do the 2012 even more controversial version of Madonna's "Like A Prayer."

There's a fine line between creativity and hoopla because you can. The performance was ahrd to follow, especally witht he minute and a half "mini movie" she showed and then switched into levitation and holy water for the on stage performance.

Grab your Bibles and watch the performance here:

TCoffey, A living God and His

TCoffey, A living God and His name is Christ, Emanuel, Yaweh.... David's transgressions were many....every action that a person takes results in a set of repercussions. I'm not sure what your point is.....:/ You are right, there are no loving god's for they are many and there only agenda is to give false hope.....listed in book of Samuel...I'm sure you've come across Daggon, a god, looks much like the character in Niki's Grammy fiasco. Ask yourself....what does Daggon look like today?

You still havnt proven god

You still havnt proven god exists other than in your deluded , childlike brain. Furthermore, Thats a contradiction. How does an omniscient, omnipotent god dictate one thing and then do another...That is far from benevolent . Its Hypocritical and evil. Discussions like this are mostly a waste of time. Theists are looking to feel better about their faith but even if you refute their argument they aren’t going to see facts. And they go through a lot of mental gymnastics and circular reasoning.

Have u seen what god says

Have u seen what god says about rape. (Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB) If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife. It is clear that God doesn't give a damn about the rape victim. He is only concerned about the violation of another mans "property".

smh. As a Sag I absolutley

smh. As a Sag I absolutley love Nicki's spirit. However....her motives with this performance was so clear to me. Nicki wants to be an actress. This was so theatrical and thirsty. I really do believe she was saying "Tyler Perry, or LionsGate...LOOK AT ME!!" Put me in a movie. I miss the OLD Nicki. Not the little red riding HOOD Nicki. I also feel as though the timing for her performance could not have been at a WORSE time. The mood was off already due to our angel's passing. YES I said ANGEL! our VOICE! So I feel as if she should have sang another song. If this was a crazy, outrageous MTV Award show I dont know if we would have been saying so much negative stuff. We would have just been saying how crazy she is but probably not be bashing her as much since she chose to do this thirsty ish on the Grammys. Also, with illuminate stuff its... "interesting" I know there is another word but thats all I could think of for now, but this was so FORCED, it was so EXTRA, it didnt fit. Its not her. Maybe some of these people dont have strong base faith or respect for God because there is no way you gone pay me any amount of money to make me put a negative conotation on religion. Something so sacred and meaningful to my God. May God keep her out of satans influences, I pray she open her eyes and not get sucked into these WORDLY temptations. I like Nicki enough to pray that she not take this road so many other celebs are taking. Watching these celebs makes me not want to be famous. I just want to share my gift to people because God directs me to. Not cause my contract MAKES me! AMEN

when rap tries to be

when rap tries to be theatrical it takes away the pure soul of it. Rap to me is suppose to be spitting in a mike against a beat and that's it. maybe a live band like Lauryn Hill on MTV and source awards, but bringing out the pope dancers and all that other crazy crap was too damn disco for the future. i need for me to feel why you are the hardest, that's it. EPIC FAIL and i don't even use that terminology. somebody had to tell her that crap was going to fail. OMG!!!

I always try to give credit

I always try to give credit where it's due. But that so-called performance was just wack. It's like she pulled out the old ACME 101 Ways to be "Controversial" handbook and tried to stir stuff up. We been there done that and she just looked so desperate & thirsty. I think you can fool some people some of the time but not everyone all of the time. And last night she was so transparent. People pick up on when a person is trying too hard & that was clear last night. I hope she finds whatever she's looking for but that mess last night wont it.

Horrible! Not even religious and was offended when she brought the pope like figure on the red carpet. After watching her performance I felt like I sinned or something and felt the need to pray. They were right it was an unforgetable performance

I don’t know what is going on

I don’t know what is going on with Nicki. She is a very talented woman and I feel as if she is trying to be innovative with all of these characters and theatrics but innovative ideas should be executed effortlessly. I’m over the gimmicks, I want her to go back to spitting some hot bars or at the very least having music you would not mind playing in your car or at the gym. Only serious Nicki Stans will mess with this song and since she’s so new to the game she should be trying to reach a wider audience (since it appears that her mission is to be the best as what she does). Not only was it completely ridiculous, it was disrespectful to the Catholic religion as it made a mockery out of it. No ma’am, I’m sorry. http://www.ellecherieamour.wordpress.com

I agree. Someone in her camp

I agree. Someone in her camp or at her record label needs to take notice because with this song and performance, plus the other single "Stupid H**," she is not starting her sophomore CD on a good note. She could have done a cute, fun performance of "Super Bass." On a positive note, Drake smashing in his tux.

She must have a lot of Yes-Men around her. Sometimes a fail is just a fail. People love the musician more than their actual artwork which is fine but that doesn’t mean you should just disregard that something is absolutely ridiculous. I agree though, Drake was very handsome in his tux. http://www.ellecherieamour.wordpress.com

I like Nicki. But Religious theme's have been done to DEATH. Trying to court controversy with Religious iconography is so BLAH. Madonna and Gaga have done this as well and at this point who really cares. Nicki needs to ease up on the gimmicks and work on her rapping. I was bored with this but I love Nicki.

What the heck are you talking about? Blinded by religion? If someone disrespected your mother wouldnt you be upset? Or you dad? The Lord is my father and she disrespected him for Attention and money. There are alot of other routes she could have went with this. A movie is a movie. And I still don't to see movies like devil inside ..music is just getting ridiculous
