Back in October, news broke that Kanye West “auditioned” for the final season of American Idol in San Francisco by performing his own song “Gold Digger” for judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr., and Keith Urban.

Now we can see Yeezus’s try-out in a short promo for the show, which premieres Jan. 6. He appears in the final moments of the teaser, to J.Lo’s sincere delight. “Is this Kanye West?” she says. “What are you doing here?”
