She went back to her seat as Finch performed “I Believe I Can Fly” — the song he received the ovation for — in hopes of being saved.An d Minaj noted before his performance, “If you go home, I’m going home.” In the end, with the judges not in agreement about saving Finch, he was eliminated.
Minaj expressed her outrage, especially at the short time they were given to deliberate.
