Kanye West: rapper, producer, American Idol? Maybe you recall that back in October, pictures of Kanye West auditioning for American Idol came out. The video is now here, and it's better than all the pictures combined. Behold, a young man striving to make his way in the harsh world that is show business. His pregnant wife (Kim Kardashian) patiently waits outside; so much depends on this audition. Will he make it to Hollywood? Only Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr., and Keith Urban can change this poor family's life forever.
