Nicki Minaj publicly declared that she thinks a girl will win American Idol 2013, but that doesn’t mean she has no love for the guys of Season 12.

During a conference call with reporters, the petite rapper divulged that if she could work with any contestant from this year, it would be Louisiana native Burnell Taylor.

 

“He has a John Legend thing that I could definitely see myself collaborating with,” Nicki said.

 

We don’t disagree! Burnell has already charmed fans and the judges alike with his uniquely smooth and sultry vocals.

 

Nicki Minaj also admitted that if it had been up to her, she would have saved Curtis Finch Jr. from elimination during the American Idol Top 9 results show.

 

“I was like gutted when Curtis left because I feel like Curtis — his voice — I mean I feel like Curtis had the best male voice for the entire season, and he was exciting,” said Nicki. “I couldn’t wait to see him perform, and looking back now I wish we would have given him the save. I really do.”

 

Do agree that Curtis should have been saved? And would you love to see Nicki collaborate with Burnell down the road?
