American Idol's Kanye Moment: Ian Benardo Heckles Simon Cowell During Dane Cook Performance (VIDEO)

Former "American Idol" reject Ian Benardo crashed the stage last night during Dane Cook's performance to heckle judge Simon Cowell in a self-described (and self-important) "Kanye moment."

Cook was a singing a song about all the brutally honest things Cowell says to contestants when Benardo grabbed the mic and started yelling out "Nobody cares! It's all about Ian Benardo tonight... And I'm replacing you, Simon Cowell, because I'm more entertaining than you."

The camera showed Cowell with a quizzical smile on his face before cutting away to commercial. It's very possible that he had no idea who this person was.
