Kanye West Will Audition on American Idol’s Final Season
As many of you know, American Idol will be coming to an end next year. The singing competition series will return to Fox on January 6th, for its 15th and final season. As a way of keeping things fun and amusing, American Idol will have a number of interesting content and special appearances.
Two days before Christmas, Kim Kardashian took to twitter to announce that Kanye West will be featured in next year’s premiere episode. Watch the teaser below.

There had been previous rumors of Kanye visiting Idol. However, it seemed rather random, because Kanye is known more for his fashion and music production abilities than his singing.
The teaser depicts Kanye (with Kim) showing up to a San Francisco audition, meeting judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. During his audition, he says:
“My name is Kanye. I’m from the south side of Chicago. I’m originally a producer. I always wanted to rap and no one really believed in me, so I wanted to try some things out, you know?” Kim is shown outside the audition room, cheering him on.
The last season of American Idol is sure to be a memorable one. While a Kanye West appearance is obviously a ploy for ratings and views, it will still make for some great entertainment.
Look forward to the episode set to premier on January 6, 2016!
