Devin Velez: Nicki Minaj Wants a Girl to Win ‘American Idol’


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.”
