“Look who’s going to Hollywood!” host Ryan Seacrest captioned a smiling photo of West, 38, about to give a high-five to wife Kim Kardashian West, following his successful audition (with his own hit song, “Gold Digger,” of course).

Kardashian West, 34, captured the moment when the judges – Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez (who gets a name drop in “Gold Digger”) and Keith Urban – realized who was going to perform for them.

“SURPRISE!” she captioned the photo of Instagram, showing Connick Jr. and Lopez with big grins.
