Kanye West on American Idol

Kanye West made a surprise appearance during auditions for the final season of American Idol on Saturday (Oct. 10).

While in San Francisco for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser, Kanye surprised judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick, Jr. and Keith Urban, who were holding auditions for the show.

"Is that Kanye West?" said a shocked J.Lo as he entered the room.

From there, Ye went to perform his 2005 hit single, "Gold Digger," complete with the lyrics referencing Lopez: "My psychic told me she'll have an ass like Serena, Trina, Jennifer Lopez."
