America saw a glimpse of Kayne West’s surprise visit on American Idol back in October but now the full audition clip has been released and it's a must watch!

The successful rapper put on a stellar performance when he sang everyone’s favorite 2005 throwback “Gold Digger.”

The hosts giggled and replied, "I hope that works out" and "good luck with all that."

Wifey Kim Kardashian also played her part in the stunt when she told host Ryan Seacrest, “I'm not really nervous because I do really believe in him. I didn't give any advice on singing, rapping. I just really believe in him.”

Well so did the judges, because he got the golden ticket!
