It's officially Yeezy season. Kim Kardashian tweeted a video of her husband, rapper and producer Kanye West, joining the likes of thousands of American Idol contestants as he auditioned for the singing competition's 15th and final season. The clip shows West walking into the audition room in the typical American Idol audition setup, describing his Chicago roots as his biggest supporter, Kardashian West, cheers him on and awaits the verdict from outside of the room with host Ryan Seacrest.

"I'm not nervous because I do really believe in him," Kardashian West tells a nodding Seacrest as dramatic theatrical music plays above the scene.
