Kanye West has auditioned for American Idol and will get to see what the judges' made of him next month.

Yup, he may already be a global superstar, but that didn't stop Kanye giving American Idol shot and showcasing his talents in front of Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Junior and Keith Urban...

Reports reveal the rapper turned up to auditions that were being filmed in San Francisco and surprised the panel with an impromptu performance of his hit, 'Gold Digger'.

J.Lo asks the star what he's doing in the audition room, to which Kanye replies: "My name is Kanye and I'm from the south side of Chicago... I'm originally a producer, always wanted to rap but no one really believed in me. I wanted to try some things out, you know."

Ever the doting wife, Kim was obviously cheering on her man and was waiting outside the audition room to hear how Kanye got on. We're not sure she needed to be, but the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star admits she isn't nervous for him and has every faith in Kanye bagging himself that golden ticket to Hollywood.

Rumour has it, he does...

We'll have to wait until January to see exactly what Jen and co made of Kanye turning up, but Kim has given us a sneak peek on Twitter, with a 30 second promo clip.

She tweeted alongside it: "It's YEEZY season! Can't wait for you guys to see Kanye on @AmericanIdol in January! #Idol."

Her tweet comes after her hubbie Kanye recently gushed about her too on the social media site. Kim has just launched her very own emoji app, Kimoji, and her beau tweeted that he thinks it is such a "dope" idea.

Kanye told fans: "I'm so proud of my wife! This KIMOJI idea is so dope..."


The couple recently became parents for the second time, as Kim gave birth to their son Saint earlier this month. They are already mum and dad to daughter North, two.
