Kanye West Auditions For American Idol [VIDEO]
The final season of American Idol premieres tonight (January 6th) on Fox. It seems like the judges are making sure that the farewell is a lot of fun.
Back in October, a few clips leaked of Kanye West trying out for the show. In anticipation of tonight's premiere, the show has now released the full clip. Yeezus may be one of the biggest names in the game, but that doesn't mean he can get his golden ticket without a tryout!
Kanye comes in and introduces himself as "Kanye from the Southside of Chicago." He then tells the judges that he was originally a producer and that he "always wanted to rap and nobody really believed in me."
After some encouraging remarks between his wife, Kim Kardashian, and Ryan Seacrest, it's time for the audition. Kanye tries to win over the judges with an a capella version of his song 'Golddigger.' In the end, Kanye got his ticket to Hollywood.
If only it were real! Kanye West actually trying to win the show might be enough to get ratings back up! The Farewell Season of American Idol premiers tonight at 7pm central time on Fox.
