Kanye West's 'American Idol' "Audition" Featured in New Ad: Watch

Update: The ad's gone, but footage remains. Watch above.

Original story: Earlier this year, we got a sneak peek of Kanye West's American Idol "audition," and now Yeezy is being featured in a new commercial.

In the spot promoting the singing competition's next (and final) season, viewers are reminded of some of the show's highlights (Kelly ClarksonCarrie Underwood) and low moments (William Hung) while teasing "lots of surprises for our farewell season." That includes current Idol judges Jennifer LopezKeith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. getting surprised by Kanye West dropping in on the first round of auditions. 

Watch above as 'Ye stomps up to the judges table with J.Lo exclaiming, "Is this Kanye West? What are you doing here?!"

No doubt it'll be one of the most talked about moment when American Idol returns for its 15th season on January 6, 2016.
