Drake surprises 'Idol' contestant

Girls may love Beyoncé, but they also love Drake.

That much was proved when the rapper made a surprise visit to "American Idol" on Thursday, after a little encouragement from his labelmate and friend, Nicki Minaj.

"Idol" contender Candice Glover, who stunned viewers a few weeks ago with her performance of  "Lovesong," went with a Drake cover on Wednesday.

Although the judges weren't loving her version of the rapper's song "Find Your Love," Drake did. The night after Glover's rendition, host Ryan Seacrest played for Glover what was supposed to be a recorded message from the rapper.

"I wanted to let you know that I was so honored that you sang my song, and that you did such an incredible job. You have an angelic voice, and I almost wish that you were there in the studio creating it with me, I feel like we could've brought it to life together," Drake said, in what Glover thought was a message from afar.

But then, out popped Drake, bearing hugs for the four remaining "Idol" contestants.

Drake gave Minaj full credit for his appearance, tweeting Thursday: "@NICKIMINAJ is an incredible person for setting that up. Love you always. Thank you!"

    This drake individual is another no-talent who makes a bundle because of his looks. He is among the most self-centered, conceited creeps walking the earth.

    You shouldn't rub your eyes if there is fecal matter on your fingers because you could get eye-fecal poisoning.

      Nicki Minaj is a freak from outer space. Half the time faking an English accent, the other half sounding like the ho from the hood she is. No wonder she's friends with Drake. They both suck big donkey wangs.

    This was such a great moment. It was so cool that Drake showed up to surprise her and I would really love it if they did a duet together! Candice is my favorite this season and I hope she wins. Sadly, I’m never home to watch American Idol live anymore because I’m always working my shift at DirecTV when it’s on. My DirecTV Genie is set up to record it for me though. It tapes everything that airs on FOX during primetime every night. It’s so nice being able to turn Idol on as soon as I get home and not have to worry about missing anything.

    Oh, & dont forget to tell people about how many more channels you get with Dish, but make sure you dont tell them a third are shop at home or info-mercial channels, & the rest are just the same channels over & over. The mexican stations are cool though, the hosts all got nice racks & bounce a lot

      God, I love those Mexican channels for that very reason. The overly curvy chicks jammed into dresses three sizes too small, and their ( o )( o ) spilling out. And that's just the childrens' programming.

      Can't say as I've ever watched those channels. So, what about the guys? Do they have things spilling out, too? Inquiring minds want to know. lol...

      It depends on the show. The game shows and talk shows usually have some old fart and a young bimbo or two. The soaps are a mixed bag; young and old guys. They remind me of the covers of most romance novels.

      Well thanks, El. So you are saying, they all have long flowing hair, with their shirts half unbuttoned with their bulging muscles showing? lol...

    Just how much does Dish pay you for each post? I'll double it if you stfu about them. Had Dish for awhile, & it was such lousy service, it went out everytime a bird farted near it. DirecTv costs a little more, but the service is OUTSTANDING compared to Dish.
