Leave it to Kanye to audition for American Idol when he’s already one of the most recognizable names in the industry. We’ve been hearing hints and getting sneak peeks of his appearance for a few months now, but the real deal is finally online and it’s definitely worth the wait.
The rapper, designer, and artist stopped by the show for a quick performance of “Gold Digger” in front of the judges, including Jennifer Lopez, whose name is featured in the song. Just outside the door stood Kim Kardashian, crossing her fingers that her husband would make it through to the next round. “I’m not nervous because I do really believe in him,” she told Ryan Seacrest. “I just hope they really believe in him.”
Kim definitely didn’t need to worry. Obviously, the judges loved Kanye, and he left the room with his ticket to Hollywood.
As much as we’d love it, we don’t think we’ll be seeing Kanye on the series full-time. He’s too busy making incredible music and taking care of his adorable family.
