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.

I been following the story and reading many comments TMZ and idk about your emails but as far as comments most of your viewers seem to b more on Enrique Iglesias side then Brittney and you probably are right Nicky is better to open for Brittney then Enrique...no talent+ a girl with crazy outfits and wigs= A great Concert!!!

This should be the tour of the summer, as long as they keep the ticket price reasonable. Tickets are skyrocketing and fans just can't afford to pay what they're asking, especially when you factor in gas for the trip. They'll stay home.

Britney Spears is a joke    

Can't wait for the FEMME FAT ALBERT tour to get started. The critics will slay Fatney for just walking around ((you can see her counting the steps in her drugged out mind)) and bouncing up and down. If anything, Fatney should open for Nicki.

Ppl fail to realize, that Enrique is already on a tour, why would he open for someone when he's already touring, so whatever TMZ are bull**** talkers, they don't know jack about why he isnt touring with her.
