Jesus, meet Yeezus.

Kanye West enlisted the help of the Almighty to kick off his "Yeezus" world tour in SeattleSaturday night, bringing a Jesus impersonator (plus 12 disciples and a red-eyed demon) on stage with him.

"White Jesus, is that you?" West asked. "I've been looking for you my whole life. ... I can't believe it!"

Bubble shows: Which will survive?
The impersonator helped introduce the song "Jesus Walks." But even divine intervention couldn't prevent the rapper from having a wardrobe malfunction. E! Online reports that West's leather pants ripped down the crotch in the middle of the performance.
West's girlfriend Kim Kardashian was not in the audience, but she tweeted ahead of the show: "Can't wait for tonight. #YeezusTour."
West also wore a T-shirt with Kardashian's (nude) picture on it backstage before the show,Us Weekly reports.
