Guess who is one of the contestants auditioning on American Idol for its final season? Kanye West steps in front of the judges, joking that he’s a brand new rap artist while his pregnant wife Kim Kardashian waits out in the hall with Ryan Seacrest. Kardashian tells Seacrest she believes in her husband and knows he has what it takes to make it on the show. Inside with the judges, West kids that he always wanted to be a rapper but no one really ever believed in him.

Check out a short clip of the audition below as well as Kanye’s contestant introduction video above.

So, do you think Kanye has what it takes to be the next American Idol?
