American Idol top 10 contestants

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

The top 10 American Idol contestants sang their hearts out in order to win America's vote.

But Wednesday night it seems one of the judges upstaged the contestants for at least for the first 20 minutes.

Nicki Minaj showed up 20 minutes later looking all casual in her black hoody and sunglasses, just in time for Janelle Arthur's country performance of "Gone."

Curtis Finch Jr. showed off his vocals in honor of "Fantasia" and Randy liked more than his voice.

The contestants chose to sing songs that past Idol winners sang.

Devin Velez chose Carrie Underwood's "Temporary Home" but didn't impress the judges.

Angie Miller chose to sing the same Celine Dion song, "I Surrender," that Kelly Clarkson sang during Season 1. All the judges were impressed but Mariah Carey summed up her performance with one word: "stellar."

Paul Jolley has been criticized for "over-singing" and needs to "tone both his voice and performance down"

Don't forget to download the American Idol app from americanidol.com.

    When Jared from subway agrees to join Andy Dick, Billy Ray Cyrus and seemingly every other B-, C-, and D-list celebrity on the planet in one made-for-TV movie that all parties involved concede as terrible, evidently people tune in. Syfy reaps profits, and the second movie in the last year about a tornado of sharks makes film history.

    Sports Illustrated cover model Chrissy Teigen is primarily known for her exotic beauty. But there's also all those unfiltered social media posts and interview antics, like the time she shoved her hands in my face and asked me to smell them. To her credit we got on the subject of cooking, one of her favorite things to do. She was describing a dish she made earlier in the day and offered her garlic scented fingers as proof.
