So, Kanye West Auditioned For ‘American Idol’


So, Kanye West Auditioned For ‘American Idol’

After 15 seasons, it’s time for American Idol to call it quits in 2016, but they aren’t going out without a bang. The talented Mr. Kanye West decided to crash the San Francisco auditions for Idol over the weekend, performing for judges Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick, Jr. while Kim Kardashian filmed the entire thing.

Considering how “meh” the show has gotten in the last few years (read: I tune in to see J.Lo’s outfits, pretty much), having Yeezy around could certainly bring some much-needed ratings for that episode. And as the picture up top indicates, he apparently passed the audition.
