Nicki Minaj has made plenty of fashion statements over the years, thanks to her extravagant red carpet ensembles, eye-popping accessories and ever-changing hair color.

On Sunday morning, the 29-year-old was officially named as one of the judges of the upcoming season of American Idol, along with country singer Keith Urban and previously confirmed judges Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson.

The new Idol family quickly got to work on Sunday, kicking off the first round of auditions in New York City.

Minaj, who is sporting platinum blonde hair these days, will no doubt be rocking outrageous and fun outfits all season long.

And judging from her history of fashion hits and misses, we can’t wait for the new season of "Idol" to start.

From her red Versace cape at this year’s Grammys to her collection of tutus, Minaj has donned some of the most memorable (and controversial) outfits of recent memory, right up there with Lady Gaga.

As we count down the weeks until season 12 of American Idol, which premieres in January, here’s a look back at some of Nicki Minaj’s craziest outfits.

    NO, NOT REALLY, IF SHE IS WRITING AND PERFORMING SUCH GREAT MUSIC, SHE NEEDS TO CHANGE HER IMAGE. SHE I EMBERRASING HERSELF AND NO ONE WANTS TO LOOK AT THE GROSS/UGLY MAKEUP AND CLOTHE SHE WEARS. I THOUGHT THEY WOULD PICK SOMEONE MORE TALENTED ND WITH YEARS IN THE INDUSTRY TO BE A JUDGE. SHE HAS A LONG WAY TO GO. WISH HER LUCKTHO
