Kanye West thrills at Emmy afterparty

He rolls out the hits for a star-studded crowd

Kanye West was the highlight of a post-Emmy Awards bash held at Hollywood’s Les Deux last night (September 16).

A celebrity-filled audience rushed the stage when the rapper began his set at the TV Guide party.

West performed a short set including his 2005 hit ‘Gold Digger’, which saw him jumping on top of giant speakers. He worked up the crowd, getting them to shout “hell yeah” and “Kan-ye”, according to the Associated Press.

Earlier in the evening, West appeared in a short skit on the Emmy Awards with actor Rainn Wilson, where he spoofed himself and made fun of the fact he went home from last week’s MTV Video Music Awards empty-handed.
