Claudia Conway going to Hollywood the hard way.
The 16-year-old TikTok personality whose parents are former Trump advisers Kellyanne Conway and anti-Trump lawyer George Conway, got a rocky start in her “American idol“Audition Sunday’s season premiere. (See the full audition below.)
She struggled to sing “Love on the Brain” by Rihanna and was then ordered to stop and take the heels of the judge Katy Perrywho asked her to try another song.
This time, Conway stuck to “When We Were Young” by Adele and showed some performance chops.
Judge Luke Bryan noted that she was “slightly limited” by her range and gave her a “no”. But Lionel Ritchie and Perry provided the necessary majority to give her the golden ticket to the talent contest Hollywood Week.
Perry, a new mother, offered some maternal advice to Conway, whose TikTok clip has criticized former President Donald Trump and delved into the family’s problems.
“There’s a lot of noise in your life,” Perry said. “You have to calm the storm around you. Meaning before you sing, get off your phone, stop reading your comments, push it aside. Reason if not, you may never rise above your father or mother. It’s your choice.”
Unrest followed Conway to the trial, which was recorded in November.
Kellyanne Conway left her the White House jobs in August and George Conway, who accompanied his daughter to the audition, took a break from his anti-Trump Lincoln project after Claudia posted several videos in which she talked about her parents and threatened to pursue liberation. Earlier in the summer, the parents told the media to leave their daughter alone.
And just last month, prosecutors in Bergen County, New Jersey, where the family lives, said it was investigating after Claudia Conway said her mother submitted topless photos of the teenager on Twitter.
Claudia admitted on the show that her relationship with her mother was “iffy.”
Both parents warmly congratulated their daughter after her “Idol” transition to the next round.
