Vocal chord problems force Minaj off stage

Nicki Minaj has been forced to pull out of her appearance at V Festival because of problems with her vocal chords.

She was due to headline the 4Music stage at Weston Park tonight, but she fell ill on her flight over from New York and doctors have ordered her to rest.

V Festival organisers say LMFAO will now headline the 4Music stage tonight, with an additional perfomance from DJ Fresh

The headline acts include The Stone Roses, The Killers and Snow Patrol.

Olly Murs, Emili Sandѐ and Keane will also be on the main stage.

Rita Ora will be there on Saturday, the ‘How We Do’ singer’s told Free Radio she loves performing at festivals and can’t wait.

And we have some West Midlands acts on stage too – there’s Beverly Knight from Wolverhampton and Malvern’s X Factor star Cher Lloyd.
