Kanye West on American Idol

After taping in October, here's the full clip of Kanye West's hilarious audition for the final season of American Idol.

In the clip, the rapper introduced himself as if the amused judges (Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban) didn't know him, saying: "My name is Kanye, I'm from the Southside of Chicago... Always wanted to rap and nobody really believed in me".

Ye then performed his 2005 hit, "Gold Digger," which shouts out one of the judges: "My psychic told me she'll have an ass like Serena, Trina, Jennifer Lopez."

The judges were thoroughly impressed.

The farewell season of Idol premieres Jan. 6.
