Kanye West stopped by American Idol to do a mock audition in front of the showâ€™s three famous judges. In true American Idol style, judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick, Jr. quizzed the rapper about his life.
Watch Video Below:
â€œWhatâ€™s your name? Where you from?â€ Urban asked.
â€œMy nameâ€™s Kanye. Iâ€™m from the south side of Chicago,â€ Kanye responded.
â€œRight on. And what do you do there, Kanye?â€ Urban continued.
â€œOriginally, a producer. I always wanted to rap, but nobody really believed in me,â€ Kanye joked.
His wife, Kim Kardashian, stood outside the audition room waiting with the showâ€™s host, Ryan Seacrest, like family members and friends of auditioning contestants often do in the show.
â€œSo, you nervous?â€ Seacrest asked Kim.
â€œIâ€™m not nervous, because I do really believe in him,â€ Kardashian replied.
During the audition Kanye rapped the first verse of one of his most famous songs, â€œGold Digger,â€ in which he refers to Jennifer Lopez. After Kanye finished the verse he was given a golden ticket suggesting that he made it to the next round of the competition.
He was thrilled.
