The Daughter of a Former American Idol Star Auditioned for the Show

Someone passes the plums…american idol makes us feel like we are old.

On the March 20 episode, 21-year-old Zareh auditioned for the judges and brought in a very special guest: season four finalist Nadia Turner– who happens to be her mother. The fourth season of idol aired in 2005.

Excuse us while we apply some anti-wrinkle cream.

Zaréh, who clearly has reality TV in her genes, brought her mother to the audition blindfolded and told her they were attending a mother-daughter spa day together. However, when Nadia took off the blindfold, she was greeted by her old friend Ryan Seacrest

“What the f–k?” exclaimed Nadia.

Zaréh, who wore the same top that her mother wore for her audition more than 17 years ago, sang “Bust Your Windows” from Jazmine Sullivan for judges Katy PerryLuke Bryan and Lionel Richie

With her visibly emotional mother ready, Zaréh amazed the entire panel with her performance.

“If you could have seen your mom while you were performing, she’s crying, but she’s also spinning around,” Lionel said. “Mom was exploding there.”

Zaréh then heard the iconic phrase “you’re going to Hollywood!” and hugged her mother.

Think it runs in the family.
