But what West did on Saturday (Oct. 10) instead was sing “Gold Digger” for the judges (his own massive hit from 2005), maybe because he thought its little mid-song shout-out to Idol judge Jennifer Lopez would help earn him a golden ticket.
Seacrest posted a picture of West’s win on Twitter:

West’s wife Kim Kardashian West posted her own picture of the moment, just captioned “SURPRISE.” For some reason, though, she only posted pictures of Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr. No Urban.

But not to worry. The American Idol people captured something even better: a mini acoustic session from Urban to close out the auditions.
