Nicki Minaj added to New York's heatwave this morning when she put on another of her scorching hot performances.
The Trinidad-born rapper turned up the temperature when she paraded around The Today Show stage in a red lace jumpsuit which showed off all of her curves.
She added a pair of thigh-high latex boots in a matching hue.
Nicki was accompanied by a group of shirtless backing dancers who glistened as they worked up a sweat while showing off their choreography.
The blond-haired diva took some time off from from her performance and perched at the edge of the stage to pull out a mirror to re-apply her lipstick in true Nicki style.
The 29-year-old actually defied doctor's orders by performing on the breakfast show in Manhattan's Rockefeller Plaza this morning.
She had told fans via her Twitter page that her physician had asked her to take "two weeks of voice rest."
But she soldiered on anyway and revealed that fellow guest, Jordin Sparks, tried to get some healing powers for her.
"Jordin Sparks was praying for me backstage cuz she had a bruised vocal chord too! Haha! We were so dramatic!" she wrote. (sic)
Nicki is set to get another X-ray to check on the damage to her vocal cord but she doesn't seem to have any plans to slow down on her hectic schedule which includes a performance at Roseland Ballroom in the Big Apple on Tuesday night and an appearance at V Festival in the UK this weekend.
