Sources involved in the negotiation tell TMZ ... the deal was signed several days ago, and Britney is elated. Everyone involved in the concert is relieved Enrique Iglesias' ego couldn't handle opening for Britney and feel Nicki will be infinitely better.

Minaj, who is on tour with Lil Wayne until the end of the month, currently has two singles on the Billboard Top 100 -- "Moment 4 Life" and "Did It On'em"

Everyone connected with the concert series thinks Nicki will create even more heat for the tour, which kicks off on June 17 in Sacramento, CA.

TMZ broke the story Nicki and Britney were in serious negotiations.
Right after we posted that story, the comments and emails were almost unanimous that Nicki is an infinitely better choice than Enrique.

It's called livesyncing, I know this cause I was in the entertainment business for years, you need to know the differenceil, Milli Vanilli Lip synced (for those too young to know these two, Google it . Most artists do it now because of high energy dance routines. Brit's LV preformance was not rehersed to have the high energy dance moves because of her knee injury. You people suck, putting down someone who has a mental illness but has done a lot of recovery. I can't wait to see these two in concert. Stop the hating

Does Lil Wayne come along with the package??? - That way if he does - she can have him sitting in that chair straddling him again but do it naked this time and then have that billboard a.z.z. of hers tatooed with "KISS ME"!!

So what the hell is she doing wasting people's money going on tour with a KNEE INJURY? If she can't DANCE, then why doesn't she SING?

your post makes no sense and is still no excuse for that train wreck in Vegas. Oh, yes, there is an excuse...she has NO TALENT.

Nicki looks like a SNL skit. GIANT fake a$$, goofy hair, goofy makeup, as a matter of fact, I bet you could watch reruns of SNL and find a look alike on one of their skits.

So stupid to think that they would consider Enrique as an opening act? How about Britney opening for Enrique, that makes more sense!!!!
