Kanye West auditioned for Idols... what could go wrong?
So, Kanye West decided to audition for American Idol.
He went before the judges with the loving support of his wife Kim Kardashian. Despite Mrs. Kardashian-West having released a single called "Jam (Turn it up)" the reality star and mother of two did not give Mr. West any advice.
During his interview with the judges, Mr. West said he had been a producer but had a dream to rap. He mentioned how nobody believed in him (of course he did).
At the end of his audition -- an original work -- the judges handed Mr. West a golden ticket.
Although it could not be confirmed, it's believed Mr. West was expecting the judges to hand over the title of next American Idol 2016 at the audition.
In the past, Mr. West has criticised music awards for being selective on who was judged. It's unclear whether Mr. West will use his golden ticket as bling or to compete with others who might take the limelight.
