Kanye West sprung a surprise on judges during Saturday’s audition for the final season of ‘American Idol’ — and he succeeded in winning a ticket to Hollywood.
Can you believe this? That Yeezus himself auditioned for a place in the competition? Yeah, he did, much to the chagrin of the judges, Harry Connick Jr., Keith Urban and especially J.Lo who, just as the rapper entered the room, quizzed, “Is that Kanye West?”
During the unexpected appearance, Kanye performed his hit song “Gold Digger,” and J.Lo sang along excitedly.
Kanye later stormed out showing off his ticket to his heavily pregnant wife, Kim Kardashian who waited outside the room.
The celebrated rapper had earlier in the day performed at a fundraising event for the Democratic National Committee at The Warfield, San Francisco, where he presented a couple pairs of Yeezy Boots to President Obama who was at the fundraiser.
