Kanye West IS ... the next American Idol. *Ryan Seacrest voice*

Even though Yeezy is a already a rap superstar, he decided to audition for "American Idol" while in town for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser for President Obama over the weekend in San Francisco -- who had some friendly Presidential advice about running in 2020.

Kanye entered the "American Idol" audition room, where he reportedly performed "Gold Digger for judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. And it looks like he crushed it, because he got a Golden Ticket to Hollywood! His wife Kim Kardashian and daughter North were there to celebrate with him.
