Kanye loves to keep his fans on their toes, and that’s exactly what he did by hitting up the final San Francisco American Idol auditions. He stepped out onto the floor where so many talented artists have before and gave it his best try.
The rapper creatively chose “Gold Digger” as his song of choice. He rapped out the hit 2005 song that features an epic line about JLo! Kanye clearly got her vote. She grooved along to the rap and put her hands in the air.

Kim Kardashian posted a cute photo of Kanye’s audition. She captioned the photo, “SURPRISE!” Seriously, Jennifer, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. never could have expected the Kanye to show up in the middle of auditions!
Back in May 2015, it was announced that the fifteenth season of American Idol would be its last. The final season will be a “celebratory event” and will likely feature a lot of celebrity appearances. Kanye was just the first! HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that the three original judges — Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson — will “without a doubt” return this season.
