Kanye West will get his big break in the upcoming final season premiere of the singing competition show “American Idol,” and if the judges' reaction is any indication, he could go far.
West gives it his all during the audition, delivering a killer rendition of "Gold Digger" that left the judges pretty pleased. Kim Kardashian plays the supportive spouse role with Ryan Seacrest backstage.
The role West will play on the show isn’t entirely clear.
