Kanye West's Full 'American Idol' Audition Goes Online

(Radio.com) Since its debut in 2003, American Idol has prompted plenty of viewers to wonder: Could some of today's biggest stars make it on the show? Kanye West decided to put that question to the test when he appeared by surprise at the San Francisco casting call.

Now full video of his encounter with Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. has surfaced. When asked what song he'll be performing, Kanye explains he wants to do something "original," launching into a few bars from his hit "Gold Digger" with special attention paid to the lyric about J-Lo herself.

"I hope they really believe in him," says a dutiful Kim Kardashian on her husband's date with destiny. As expected, the judges gleefully hand over Kanye's golden "Congratulations" ticket, sending him to Hollywood for the next round. Watch it here.
