Kanye West has the golden ticket to Hollywood.
West surprised the American Idol judges, Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban, over the weekend in San Francisco when he pretended to be a contestant auditioning for the reality show, according to US Weekly.
West sang his song “Gold Digger,” and had a smile on his face during the entire performance. His wife, Kim Kardashian West, shared a picture of the performance. “SURPRISE,” she captioned her Instagram post.
Lopez sang along to the 2005 hit, which gives her a shout out, from the judge’s panel.
On the same day, President Obama gave West advice for his 2020 presidential campaign.
The first piece of advice was be ready to “deal with some guys who are strange characters who act like they’re on a reality TV show.”
Another piece of advice was to watch what to you say. “Saying you have a beautiful, dark, twisted fantasy, that’s what’s known as off-message in politics,” President Obama said.
West’s audition will be on the final season of American Idol.
