Willow Smith Performs ‘Fireball’ On X Factor Without Nicki Minaj

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s daughter, 11-year old Willow Smith, was in full command of the stage on X Factor last night. Willow performed her new single Fireball sans the track’s featured artist Nicki Minaj. Minaj and Willow were spotted in LA recording the single. Willow gushed recently about getting Nicki on the track.

“It was a surprise for me,” Willow stated. “They told me she was going to be on it, but I was like ‘That’s not gonna happen.’ Then later on, they told me ‘She’s on the song’ and I was like ‘That’s awesome!’”

Nicki Minaj and Willow Smith first met briefly during the BET Awards but during the video shoot, Nicki tweeted about joining the Smith family!
