Will.i.am and Nicki Minaj Bring 'Check It Out' to 'Regis & Kelly'
Will.i.am and Nicki Minaj stopped by "Live! with Regis and Kelly" this morning to perform their Buggles-sampling duet "Check It Out." Backed by a pair of dancers, Minaj sported a multi-colored dress and blond wig, while the Black Eyed Peas frontman showed off some dance moves reminiscent of the robot.

"I'm in love with Will," said Minaj about how the song came together. "I'm a huge fan and I wanted to work with him so bad. And then finally he gave me the opportunity, and I was like, 'Yes!'" Regis Philbin mentioned Minaj's many appearances on this week's Hot 100 before Will.i.am put a spin on the host's name by calling him Reg.is.
Will.i.am and Minaj have previously performed "Check It Out" at the MTV VMAs pre-show last month. The song, currently at No. 50 on the Hot 100, will be featured on Minaj's debut disc "Pink Friday," out Nov. 22.
