Nicki Minaj, is that you? The singer, rapper and wearer of crazy outfits performed a sound check on her E! special without the aid of makeup, making it hard to recognize the opinionated performer.

Good thing she has on a silly blonde wig and a bright pink hoodie that matches a sparkly pink microphone -- or we might have no idea who this is.

Still, we prefer this version of Minaj to the unhinged one who's constantly starting feuds, both in real life and on the internet.
