The upcoming final season of American Idol will feature an audition from one Kanye West, the producer-turned rapper who tells the judges that he hails from the "South Side of Chicago." While judges Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. size up the contestant, Ryan Seacrest turns to a very pregnant Kim Kardashian, who says "I'm not nervous, because I do really believe in him." Back inside, Yeezy breaks into an a cappella version of "Gold Digger," featuring a shout-out to Lopez. Check out the video below, and look for the season premier of American Idol to air on Fox this Wednesday at 8 pm ET.
