West made headlines in October when he surprised judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban while shooting the final season of American Idol. The rapper performed Gold Digger, scoring bonus points for name-dropping J Lo. Play to the judges, people!

The full clip has now been released and in it, we see then-pregnant wife Kim Kardashian standing side stage with Ryan Seacrest as the pair wait to find out whether West scored a golden ticket. The anticipation was palpable.

Check out the infrequently seen but always welcomed happy Kanye in the clip below!
