    You can read the article and watch the preview here

    Watch the video here
    Before launching into the audition, West tells the judges – specifically Jennifer Lopez – he chose "Gold Digger" because "it has one of the judges' names in it." After wrapping up the a cappella rendition, the judges don't even need to deliberate before quickly handing West his Golden Ticket to Hollywood Week; whether the rapper actually takes part in the next round remains to be seen

    When the American Idol auditions rolled into San Francisco in October, among the starry-eyed contestants hoping to win a Golden Ticket into the music competition's final season was a talented-but-unknown artist by the name of Kanye West. The rapper's Idol journey, one of the many surprises Idol has in store to celebrate its final season, was previewed in a 30-second look into his audition.

    "My name is Kanye, I'm from the south side of Chicago," West tells the judges in the clip. "I'm originally a producer. I always wanted to rap and no one really believed in me, so I wanted to try some things out, ya know?" "What are you going to do for us today," judge Jennifer Lopez asks West, incredulously. While the preview doesn't show performance footage from the rapper's audition, West delivered an a cappella take on his "Gold Digger" for the judges.

    The entirety of West's fauxdition – and the answer to whether or not he was awarded a Golden Ticket – will air when American Idol returns for its final season in January.
