WATCH: Kanye West Auditions for American Idol

Famed rapper Kanye West took his skills to a slightly different setting, an audition to be exact. The husband to reality star Kim Kardashian decided to surprise the “American Idol” judges with a special performance in San Francisco.

When Kanye enters the room for his big moment he is asked a series of questions: “What is your name?” “Where are you from?” “What do you do?” He answers the judges with, “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?”

The video above shows the father of two rap one of his signature songs, “Gold Digger” which of course earned him a golden ticket. Check out the amazing clip.
