Kanye West loves a good television surprise. The 38-year-old rapper—who stunned the world when he announced he was running for president during August's MTV Video Music Awards—is up to his old tricks.

West and his wife Kim Kardashian stopped by American Idol's San Francisco auditions over the weekend in the hopes of finally being discovered. A very pregnant Kardashian waited outside the audition room with host Ryan Seacrest while West surprised the panel of celebrity judges (Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Conick Jr.) by appearing onstage in the middle a slew of unknown aspiring performers.

Kardashian shared a glimpse at the judges' suprised reactions:

SURPRISE!
