American Idol top 10 contestants

MYFOXNY.COM -

The top 10 American Idol contestants sang their hearts out in order to win America's vote.

But Wednesday night it seems one of the judges upstaged the contestants for at least for the first 20 minutes.

Nicki Minaj showed up 20 minutes later looking all casual in her black hoody and sunglasses, just in time for Janelle Arthur's country performance of "Gone."

Curtis Finch Jr. showed off his vocals in honor of "Fantasia" and Randy liked more than his voice.

The contestants chose to sing songs that past Idol winners sang.

Devin Velez chose Carrie Underwood's "Temporary Home" but didn't impress the judges.

Angie Miller chose to sing the same Celine Dion song, "I Surrender," that Kelly Clarkson sang during Season 1. All the judges were impressed but Mariah Carey summed up her performance with one word: "stellar."

Paul Jolley has been criticized for "over-singing" and needs to "tone both his voice and performance down"

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
