Watch Kanye West’s Audition for ‘American Idol’

The 15th and final season of American Idol kicks off tomorrow and is set to go out with a bang.

Today, we got a snippet of an episode this season, which features multi-platinum artist Kanye West!

The scene is a gem from the start.

Keith Urban goes through the motions, saying “Tell us your name, where you’re from,” and Kanye plays along. “My name is Kanye. I’m from the Southside of Chicago,” he says. “And what do you do there, Kanye” Urban asks. “Originally a producer, I always wanted to rap but nobody really believed in me,” Kanye says.

Kanye then goes on to wrap his classic song "Gold Digger" which features a rap line dedicated to American Idol host Jennifer Lopez.

I hope this is the first of many awesome surprises on the show this season!

Christian is a member of the SNICK generation who misses the days of Pete and Pete and is a loyal advocate of backpack rap.
