As totally disjunctive, nonsensical hodgepodges of cobbled together ideas go, this was a great one to watch! Ariana Grande mixed Barbarella with The Fifth Element and TLC's "No Scrubs." Nicki Minaj combined a "sexy snake" Halloween costume with Cirque du Soliel-style acrobatics and Bobby Brown-style "Humpin' Around." Jessie J wore a skirt cut up almost up to her gall bladder. Together, the trio had no chemistry and nothing made sense — but everyone made a mark nonetheless.
