During American Idol‘s San Francisco leg of their auditions back in October, Kanye West joined the contestants to win a Golden Ticket into the music competition’s final season. His wife, Kim Kardashian West, unveiled a 30-second preview clip of Kanye’s audition. Although the video doesn’t offer any footage of his performance — he offered an a capella take of “Gold Digger” — it finds ‘Ye telling the judges:

The entire audition will be aired when American Idol returns for its final season in January.
