While the shadow of Whitney hung over last night’s 54th annual Grammy Awards, with Jennifer Hudson paying tribute with her rendition of Houston’s classic “I Will Always Love You”, the evening was also filled with some bizarre moments - the kind we’ve come to expect from Music’s biggest night. The most talked about was Nikki Minaj’s weird performance of “Roman Holiday,” featuring a Pope lookalike, stained glass windows and other religious imagery, and Minaj strapped to a table and levitating as she underwent an exorcism.
- It made Madonna’s performance at the Superbowl halftime show look like a scene from Mary Poppins.
- Unlike Linda Blair in the Exorcist, Minaj didn’t throw up during the Exorcism routine… she did that at the after-party.
- She got the Pontiff lookalike from “Popes R Us”.
