Nicki Minaj And Mariah Carey Join Ciara On BET Awards 2013 Performers Line-Up

The 'Starships' rapper joins fellow American Idol alumni Mariah on the bill for this year's event.

Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey are the latest stars to join the performance line-up for this year's BET Awards 2013.

The 'Freedom' rapper will share the same bill as her former fellow American Idol panelist Mariah, after the two clashed repeatedly on the last series of the show.

Ciara and India.Arie have also been added to the line-up for this year's huge awards show, which sees Drake leading the running with a total of twelve nominations to his name.

Nicki, Mariah and Ciara join an all-star performance bill which now includes the likes of Chris Brown, Miguel, R Kelly and Kendrick Lamar.
