It seems as though Kanye West is taking a break from his 2020 presidential campaign to pursue his other dream of becoming the next American Idol.

On this, the 113th, season “American Idol,” West decided to surprise the judges, Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr., at the auditions. They probably thought they’d seen it all at this point, but this was definitely a first.

West auditioned with the song “Gold Digger.” Which, if you remember, mentions judge Jennifer Lopez.

Coincidence? I think not.



His rendition of the song apparently impressed the judges enough because West got a golden ticket securing him a spot at the next round.



Stay tuned for President Kanye West/American Idol Kanye West.

No word on if he has his own email server or not.
