The judges lost their mind when the 38-year-old performed his famous 2005 hit song ?Gold Digger? in front of them and amazed Jennifer Lopez enough to give him the ?golden ticket? which apparently takes him through to the next round in Hollywood. The Grammy Award-winner may have made a sigh of relief when he was given that special ticket.
A proud Kim Kardashian, who is pregnant with her second child, was able to take a photo of her husband smiling in front of the judges during the surprise audition. There?s no word yet if he?s planning on going through to Hollywood, but at least we know that he can still perform even without those extravagant stage lighting and backup dancers.
Host Ryan Seacrest jumped for joy when he saw a happy Kanye West opening the door with a ?golden ticket? held in his hand while an enthusiastic wife celebrated with a smile for a successful audition. There were no hints of angst and worry judging from the looks of Kim Kardashian.
Kanye West apparently had the idea of popping up on American Idol when he was in town with his wife for an appearance at a Democratic Party fundraiser with Barack Obama last Saturday, according to Sydney Morning Herald.
The rapper previously made headlines at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards when he announced his intent in running for president of the United States in the next 2020 election. So for now, he may be enjoying his career in singing before he goes full throttle with his presidential ?campaign.?
