Kanye West
hit rewind on his career last weekend, when he ‘auditioned’ for the 15th and final season talent competition, American Idol.

Taking time out from running for President and going on twitter rants about his daughter’s in-app purchases, the 38-year old rapper performed his 2005 hit ‘Gold Digger’ a capella for judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban.

Kanye arrived at the San Francisco studios on Saturday accompanied by his pregnant wife Kim Kardashian who posted a snap of Kanye performing through the producer’s monitor on Instagram.

We won’t know exactly what happened until the show airs in January 2016. However a short clip of ‘Gold Digger’ has surfaced online, and TMZ have shared photos of Kanye holding the ‘You’re going to Hollywood’ tickets and looking rather chuffed.

Later that day, the Yeezus rapper performed in front of President Barack Obama at the Democratic National Committee. It’s yet to be confirmed if Kanye is in fact serious about running for president in 2020, but if not then at least he might have the long illustrious career of a talent show winner ahead of him.
