Watch Kanye West Audition For ‘American Idol’!
Kanye West has a pretty impressive list of accolades including: 21 Grammys, 18 BET awards, and an NAACP image award. But now the award-winning rapper and father to North and Saint can officially add “American Idol” golden ticket winner to his roster.
Over the last few months Kim Kardashian teased clips on social media of her hubby auditioning for “American Idol”, but it was just clips.
Well now we have the full audition tape in all it’s glory and it’s priceless!
All three Idol judges play along when Kanye walks into the room, asking him his name and where he’s from.
Kanye tells the judges he’s originally a producer from the south side of Chicago who always wanted to rap but no one ever believed in him.
Meanwhile Kim stands outside with Ryan Seacrest telling him that she’s always believed in Kanye.
Kanye then tells the judges he’s going to do something original with one of the judges’ names in it, before rapping a few bars from “Gold Digger” with full confidence.
The judges loved it, especially Jennifer Lopez who mouthed the words right along with him!
