Former White House advisor Kellyanne Conway’s daughter Claudia Conway has made her way to the “American Idol” audition process, and her coach for the singing tryout may surprise her fans.

Claudia made the announcement on her TikTok account on Monday that she was auditioning for “American Idol” in a confessional video. She said to her 1.4 million TikTok followers, “I met Ryan Seacrest today and I have my audition soon, so stay tuned for that,” as she panned to a room filled with a camera crew.

She continued by saying she was “Very, very nervous, but very, very excited,” and blew a kiss to the camera to end the video.

TMZ caught up with “America Idol” host Ryan Seacrest, where he was asked about Claudia’s audition on the TV show. Seacrest revealed that Claudia had her dad George in tow.

Seacrest revealed that the “American Idol” hopeful had told him that her dad was a “very good coach.”

Seacrest also told TMZ that George was very proud of Claudia and was giving her direction as she tried out for the show.

George, who is a lawyer, was also recently featured in one of Claudia’s TikTok videos, lip-syncing to “Potential Breakup Song” by Aly & AJ.

TMZ also asked Seacrest how meeting Claudia was. He responded by saying that she was “very nice.” He continued by saying, “I was not in the room when she auditioned, but she seemed like she really wanted to be a singer.”

Seacrest was further pressed about whether Claudia was chosen to audition because of her family’s public name or her talent. Seacrest said, “They certainly knew who she was. They had a lot to talk to her about. At the end of the day, it is based on talent.”

But Seacrest reminded TMZ that he’s not the judge.

Claudia rose to notoriety based on a series of viral TikTok videos, where she called out her mother for having COVID-19. She also has voiced her opinion about President Trump and his COVID-19 diagnosis.

Claudia said she wanted to seek emancipation from her parents in October.
