Ousted American Idol contestant Devin Velez knew his time was up when he was eliminated on Thursday night and added that he knows Nicki Minaj wants a girl to win the show.”It’s been a great journey,” Velez told Us Weekly after being voted off the FOX talent competition. “It can only get better from here, and I still get to do the tour. I’m hoping to go back home and win prom king. It’s a military ball. There is still a crown, and it’s still hopefully it’s mine, so I’ll think positive.” Velez went on to talk about his performance with USAToday, saying,  “We all know that Nicki [Minaj] wants a girl to win — it’s okay. But we have our own opinions about Nicki, too. It goes both ways.”
