Nicki Minaj to Open the 2011 American Music Awards

Talk about a way to start a show. It has been announced that the Young Money mistress Nicki Minaj will be kicking off this year’s American Music Awards.

Nicki has already been involved with the AMAs, as she was an award nominee announcer alongside Pitbull, earlier this year. Now she is going to kick off the show with a performance of “Where Them Girls At” with David Guetta and Flo Rida. Other artists set to perform at the awards include Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Kelly Clarkson, Pitbull, and more.

The show will broadcast live from the NOKIA Theater Sunday November 20 from 8-11 p.m. EST on ABC.

Maybe Nicki’s alter ego Roman Zolanski will be in the building… she did hint to Roman’s return in two weeks via her blog.
