Hey, why not throw Ryan Seacrest a bone. This weekend, the very last American Idol auditions ever are taking place in San Francisco. There were several special guests on Saturday, including current winner, Nick Fradiani and mentor Scott Borchetta.
But making a super surprise appearance, were Kim Kardashian, one of the stars of the Ryan Seacrest produced reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and her husband, rapper, Kanye West, who auditioned with “Gold Digger” and received his golden ticket.
Yeah…see you in Hollywood Kanye.

While FOX delivered Ryan Seacrest some promotion for the crown jewel of his production empire, the news also made it’s way through the media cycle. A win for everyone.
