Kenneth Partridge of commented about the performance: "It takes some mighty captivating musicians to overshadow leggy models wearing next to nothing, but Kanye West, Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj fared as well as anyone might at this year's Victoria's Secret fashion show." He also commented positively about Nicki's performance saying: "As Nicki sang and rapped through her 'Pink Friday' favorite 'Super Bass,' Vicky's gals rocked neon get-ups similar to hers. No one dared match her pink curly-cue hairdo, however, proving that angels are no match for a Harajuku Barbie."[4]
