Back in October, fans caught a glimpse of Kanye West's unexpected yet very entertaining audition on American Idol in San Francisco. A commercial for the new season that included the rapper came out a month later, fueling the final product. We are finally blessed with it today.

The clip features Kanye taking his place in front of judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. with the same confidence and enthusiasm that has made him a star. "I always wanted to rap but nobody believed in me," he jokes before saying, "I just wanted to do something original. It has one of the judges names in it." He then proceeds to rap "Gold Digger," a selection J.Lo certainly jives with. Chances are this will be one of the biggest highlights of the entire season. Watch the awesome clip above.
