Nicki Minaj + Scotty McCreery to Perform on ‘American Idol’

Nicki Minaj and Scotty McCreery are performing on ‘American Idol‘! Not together, unfortunately, but hey — even if we have to keep waiting for our long-held dream of seeing a Minaj/McCreery duet, this news is still pretty awesome.

Both performances are slated to take place next week, when Nicki will take to the ‘Idol’ stage to perform her latest hit, the top 10 Billboard smash ‘Starships.’ Although she’s already moved on to the next release from her forthcoming ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ album — she dropped the second single, ‘Right by My Side,’ this week — people can’t get enough of ‘Starships,’ so Nicki’s giving her public another live performance of the song they turned into a worldwide sensation.

As for McCreery — who can be heard every week on ‘Idol’ via his recording of this season’s exit song — he’ll be stopping by to perform ‘Water Tower Town,’ a track from his 2011 debut album, ‘Clear as Day.’ Although ‘Tower’ hasn’t been announced as a single yet, the time is ripe for McCreery to deliver another track to radio; his last hit, ‘The Trouble With Girls,’ was sent to radio way back in August of last year. Or it could just be old home week at ‘Idol’ — according to Aceshowbiz, Kelly Clarkson is also rumored to be taping a performance on the set next week.
