Kanye West Auditioned For The Final Season Of American Idol

He’s going to Hollywood!

Okay, I know usually Kanye West takes himself so seriously, but this is pretty funny.  Dude did a full American Idol audition for the last and 15th season, which was released on Monday, January 4 and it is HILARIOUS:

“My name is Kanye. I’m from the South Side of Chicago,” West says in the footage from his tryout, introducing himself to judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban. “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 camera then pans to host Ryan Seacrest, who is watching West on a monitor alongside longtime friend and Yeezy’s wife, Kim Kardashian — pregnant with their son, Saint West, at the time.

“I’m not really nervous because I do really believe in him,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35 — who shared a sneak peek of the audition last December — tells Seacrest. “I didn’t give any advice on singing, rapping. I just really hope the judges believe in him.”

Meanwhile, Lopez, 46, asks West what he’s going to perform.

“I just wanted to do something original,” he says. “It has one of the judges’ names in it.”

“It better f–king be me,” the “On the Floor” singer hilariously whispers back.

Sure enough, the Grammy winner begins to sing his 2005 hit single, “Gold Digger,” in which he raps, “Jennifer Lopez, four kids,” in one of the catchy tune’s memorable lines.

After he finishes, the judges immediately hand West a golden ticket to Hollywood, with no deliberation required!

“I can’t believe it!” West exclaims, jumping up and down in excitement.

Mariah Carey Calls American Idol “The Worst Exprience Of Her Life.”

2015 Billboard Music Awards

So I guess… she didn’t like it?

Mariah Carey just opened up about her days of judging American Idol and let’s just say…she doesn’t look back on that experience very positively.

The 45-year-old entertainer called into the Australian radio show The Kyle and Jackie O Show and kinda tore AI a new A hole. When asked if she would ever return to the panel, she said:

“Hell no! Absolutely not! That was the worst experience of my life.”


“I don’t think they had any intentions for us to have a good experience doing that show. Pitting two females against each other wasn’t cool,” Mariah said about her and Nicki Minaj. “It should’ve been about the contestants instead of about some nonexistent feud that turned into even more ridiculousness.”

She added, “It’s so boring and so fake.You have to make up things to say about people. Half the time the performances are good. You’d just be like, ‘It was good!’”

Listen to Mariah‘s full interview HERE.  Lucky for Mariah- AI is ending its long television tenure all the fakery can be left to the likes of The Voice!
