In a new twist, Idol is spending three whole weeks in Vegas this season. On tonight’s show, 5 of 10 women suffered the spike-to-the-heart SUDDEN DEATH  blow from one of Nicki Minaj’s heels.

Here are Wednesday’s results:


Jenny Beth Willis
Kamaria Ousley
Brandy Hotard
Shubha Vedula


Tenna Torres
Adrianna Latonio
Kree Harrison
Angela Miller
Amber Holcomb (pictured)
