Claudia Conway Wows 'American Idol' Judges with Hollywood Round Performance - Watch Now!

Claudia Conway is back in a big way!

The 16-year-old daughter of former Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway made her second appearance on American Idol on Sunday night (March 21).

In the second round of auditions, Claudia wowed the judges, especially Katy Perry, when she took the stage debuting her darker hair and more mature appearance.

“I’m sorry, excuse me, what?” Katy said shocked as Claudia took to the stage.

“Yeah, it’s a little change,” Claudia said with a laugh, as Katy corrected her: “You mean a transformation.”

In her pre-taped message, Claudia talked about how nervous she was when she first auditioned for Idol. She also explained how she faced a lot of criticism after her audition aired, but Katy‘s advice and words of wisdom helped her stay motivated.

“She believed in me, and I could not be more grateful for that,” Claudia shared. “Now I’m just trying it all out to telling myself I can do it.”

For her second appearance on the Idol stage, Claudia covered Bishop Briggs‘ “River,” which won over the judges once again, earning Claudia a spot in the next round of auditions!

American Idol airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
