It's 2015 and we are currently living in a world where Kanye West could be president of the United States and the next "American Idol." He would be the first person to hold both titles, but surely no one man should have all that power. 

Shortly after receiving some great political advice from President Barack Obama, the rapper "auditioned" (we use quotes because, is this real life?!) for the Fox talent show on Saturday, where he reportedly performed a rendition of "Gold Digger." Ye clearly pleased the judges, including Jennifer Lopez -- who gets a shoutout in the rap track -- and earned himself a ticket to Hollywood

Host Ryan Seacrest and Ye's wife Kim Kardashian were there to congratulate the 38-year-old rapper when he came out of the audition with a huge smile on his face. Seacrest shared a snap of the moment on Instagram with the caption, "look who's going to Hollywood! #IdolAuditions #kanyewest."

Kim also shared an image from the audition on Instagram with the simple caption, "SURPRISE."

Is this his idea of a beautiful, dark, twisted fantasy? We're not sure we're ready for it.
