BET Awards: Nicki Minaj Enlists 'American Idol' Alum for 'Pills N Potions' Performance (Video)
The former "Idol" judge showed her season some love with help from Burnell Taylor.
American Idol's twelfth season may have gone down in the history books as difficult, but former judge Nicki Minaj showed her loyalty by bringing seventh place finisher Burnell Taylor onstage at Sunday night's Black Entertainment Television network awards.
Minaj started her performance of "Pills N Potions" on a motorcycle, and as the set transformed into a tripped out homage to Alice in Wonderland, Taylor-looking dapper in a suit and his trademark bow tie- filled Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre with his silky vocals wrapped around the hook, "Pills N Potions/We're Overdosing/ I'm angry, but I still love you."
Taylor had teased fans on his Twitter feed over the past few days with the song's lyrics and clues that something major was about to happen.
Watch the performance below.
