Tune in and turn up

When it was first brought to light that Kanye West had auditioned for American Idol, no one really knew what to make of it. Then, last month, when the preview surfaced, we’d finally come to grips with wanting to see it. And now, the highly anticipated moment is here. Kanye’s full American Idol audition was just released in all its glory. Behold, Yeezus as Yeezus himself.

“My name is Kanye. I’m from the south side of Chicago,” he says. “Originally a producer… I always wanted to rap and no one really believed in me.”

Kanye goes on to perform his 2005 single “Gold Digger,” in which he references judge Jennifer Lopez’s famous tush. Check out the entertaining performance below.
