Calling all Barbz, Ken Barbz, pretty girls, drag queens and anyone else who is 18 years or older: There is a massive Nicki Minaj look-alike contest taking place in Manhattan's Times Square bright and early tomorrow (April 2) morning. Celebrating the launch of Casio’s new groundbreaking Tryx digital camera, Casio is teaming up with Best Buy to find Nicki Minaj’s ultimate look-alike. Think wigs, flashy outfits, dramatic facial expressions and full-blown Nicki drama. 

The contest starts at 6 a.m. (that's early for Barbz!) in the lobby of Best Buy Theatre at 1515 Broadway at West 44th Street. Registration runs from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. After 9 a.m. judging begins.

The first 75 qualifying contestants will compete for 10 spots. All 10 will nab a pair of tickets to the Casio Tryx Out launch party featuring performances by Nicki Minaj and The Roots. In addition, the top 10 finalists will receive a Casio Tryx digital camera and a gift certificate to Best Buy. One lucky winner will get private time to hang with Nicki backstage.

Prepare for all Nicki fans to go out and represent!
