A new American Idol winner was crowned on May 17. But before the winner was announced, tons of celebrities and former Idol contestants were seen gracing the red carpet at the Nokia Theater L.A. Live for the Finale Results Show.
The stars dressed their best, as usual, but there were three who stood out in interesting boots; the very pregnant Tamar Braxton, the American Idol Season 12 fourth placer Amber Holcomb, and AI judge Nicki Minaj.
Who do you think wore the hottest boots?
Nicki Minaj in Christian Louboutin “Toundra” Boots
This look, according to Nicki Minaj herself, was “chill and comfortable.” The “Super Bass” songstress said it was her vibe for the day as she had a lot of errands to do. She said she had just come from a rehearsal and would be doing a photo shoot right after the finale.
Her outfit was indeed a bit casual. She was just in jeans with a cropped top that she styled with a cool black jacket. What made her look eye-catching were her Christian Louboutin boots. Although the outfit was rather unexpected since we’re used to seeing her in more controversial ensembles, her boots made the look a definite head-turner.
Nicki’s furry boots feature two buckled belt straps and natural coyote fur covering that can’t be missed. Finishing this pair are 5-inch covered heels and 1 1/2-inch platforms.

Amber Holcomb in Studded Boots
Here’s this season’s fourth placer, Amber, looking hot in a red dress that showed off her legs and cleavage. Her look was made fierier with the addition of these studded spiked booties. They seem to be made of suede and are entirely covered in silver-tone spikes. I’m not sure if these are from Christian Louboutin, but they do look a lot like Louboutins. Can you ID them?

Tamar Braxton in Giuseppe Zanotti Peep-Toe Booties
Coming from a family of singers, it is no surprise to see Tamar Braxton at the finale of the singing competition. She looked fab in a black-and-white ensemble which showed off her baby bump. And despite her growing tummy, Tamar chose to wear a pair of stiletto booties.
Unlike Nicki’s and Amber’s booties, Tamar’s come in white, and are sleek and very modern in silhouette. They feature oversized gold-tone buckles that add elegance and edge to the pair. The peep toes, the cutouts at the back, and the 5.3-inch heels complete these stunning booties.
