Kanye West and his daughter North West are reigning champions at the 7-year-old's school dance competition, according to Kim Kardashian West.

While discussing motherhood with David Letterman, the reality television star, who shares North with the "Flashing Lights" rapper, revealed that her husband and their eldest daughter won this year's father-daughter dance competition. 

"We just took our daughter to a school dance, and there's a dance competition," she said on a season three episode of Netflix's "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman."

Kim said that thoughts about how North would feel if she won or lost "consumed" her before the event.

When the host asked how the competition turned out, Kim noted that her husband was also involved. 

"Her and Kanye have won the last two years in a row," she told Letterman, confirming that it was a father-daughter event. 

The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star continued, "They practiced. They came up with this whole dance, and they have their moves."

Even though the routine from the school dance isn't available for viewing, North and Kanye have previously shown glimpses of their dance moves.

In August, the "Runaway" artist posted a video of himself goofing around and improvising dance moves with the 7-year-old. 

North also proved that she's comfortable in the spotlight when she moved along to her dad's Sunday Service concert in March 2019. The SKIMS founder shared a video of the father-daughter duo in action on Twitter. 

Kim appeared on "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman" before the coronavirus pandemic and prior to her husband's announcement that he was running for president. 

In July 2020, presumably months after the father-daughter dance, Kanye made headlines for mentioning North during a political rally in South Carolina.

The rapper spoke about his plan to keep abortions legal but incentivize people against them by offering them $1 million for every child they have.

The speech then went from political to deeply personal.

"My dad wanted to abort me. My mom saved my life. There would have been no Kanye West, because my dad was too busy," Kanye said.

"I almost killed my daughter ... So even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn't want to," he added. "She stood up, and she protected that child."

A source told Entertainment Tonight that Kanye's remarks "upset" Kim. 

Days after the rally, Kanye publicly apologized to Kim for talking about North during the speech. 

"I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me," he wrote.
