Kanye West Auditions for American Idol
Tue, 05 Jan 2016 13:15:06
Kanye West's American Idol audition is now finally viewable. E! has just released the video and it features Kanye dropping rhymes about one of the American Idol judges, though you'll have to check out the video to see which one. Furthermore, an excited but noticeably nervous Kim Kardashian-West waited outside the closed-door auditions for her husband with host Ryan Seacrest.
Have no fear, Kanye fans, Mr. West received his golden ticket and is on his way to Hollywood, but we'll have to wait and see if he actually makes an appearance in the next round. This is the final season of American Idol, which premieres January 6 on Fox.
The video follows up a busy week in the Kanye camp, which also saw him drop a new 'diss-track,' "FACTS." The singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, performer set his sights on anybody and everybody with the song, including attacks on Nike, Michael Jordan, Steve Harvey, and Bill Cosby. Kanye also goes all out repping his Adidas affiliation. We hope that all this hype is helping him gear up for the eagerly anticipated release of "Swish" at some point in 2016.
