Watch Kanye West Audition For “American Idol

The 15 and final season of “American Idol” kicks off on Wednesday, January 6, and they are pulling out all of the bells, whistles, and stars.

Kanye West surprised the judges’ panel when he showed up to audition to be the next American Idol.

Ye introduced himself to the judges saying, “My name is Kanye, I’m from the south side of Chicago. I’m originally a producer. I always wanted to rap and no one really believed in me, so I wanted to try some things out, ya know?”

Meanwhile…a baby bump-toting Kim Kardashian was outside supporting her man and rooting for him.

She told Ryan Seacrest, “I’m not really nervous because I do really believe in him. I didn’t give any advice on singing, or rapping. I just really believe in him.”

Gotta love Ye!

The final season of “American Idol” premieres tomorrow night on FOX at 8/7c.
