On Tuesday night, Barbz and Ken Barbz were given a special treat. If you lived in NYC, it was a free Nicki Minaj concert at the Roseland Ballroom or watching the live broadcast in Times Square. For the rest of her fans around the world, her concert was live streamed at pepsi.com.

Not only was Miss Minaj punctual, (her show started 2 minutes early), but she started with “Roman’s Revenge” and followed that up with “Did it on Em.” Her first guest came out on stage early in the night and it was none other than rapper Cam’ron.

After warning her fans not to push and for everyone to take a step back, she asked the crowd “Who’s ready to get ratchet?!” and proceeded to perform “Beez in the Trap.”  She followed that with “Dance (A$$),” “Right by My Side” and “Moment 4 Life.”

Then came costume change #1 and her DJ was left to entertain all of her fans. He kept the crowd excited playing some of her songs that she wouldn’t be performing live.

After her first costume change she came back out and performed “Starships” and her latest single “Pound the Alarm.”

After two more outfit changes, Nicki brought out Foxy Brown who she describes to the crowd as “The female rapper that influenced me the most.”

Following Brown, the crowd erupted yet again when they saw Drake walk on stage.  The two performed “Up All Night” when Nicki proceeded to tell her Barbz and Ken Barbz to “Make some noise for my husband” and then they performed “Make Me Proud.”  Nicki also took this time to give some advice to all the women in the crowd. She told them to work hard, stay in school, get a bachelor’s degree, or even a master’s degree. Don’t just give it away or give it up to a guy.

Then she started to perform “Take it the Head” and many wondered, could Minaj’s mentor Lil Wayne, aka Tunechi possibly make an appearance tonight as well? The possibility became a reality when Tunechi walked on stage, finished “Take it To the Head” and performed “The Motto” with Drake.

Nicki ended her show thanking the entire Team Minaj for all of their hard work on her tour and then closed it out with “Roman Reloaded” and the infamous “Super Bass.” While the show was an unforgettable one for those in the crowd, the live stream gave millions around the world the chance to witness the incredible show as well.
