“You heard that right. @claudiamconwayy is looking for a golden ticket,” the show’s Twitter account posted alongside a video promoting Conway’s audition.
“I’m very nervous but very excited,” Conway said in the beginning of the clip. The teaser clip shows Conway introducing herself to judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan telling them, “I’m Claudia Conway. My parents are high profile political figures.”
Conway posted a TikTok video explaining her appearance on the show after she saw that she was trending on Twitter.
“I know I made a video in November saying I was auditioning, I did audition and it will be on air this Sunday, Feb. 14,” she said.
“I’ve been singing my whole life, I grew up in musical theater. Music has been one of the pillars in my life and I wouldn’t be here without it. I play about eight instruments. I’ve just been doing it since I could walk. They saw a video I posted as a joke of me singing and they were like, ‘Hey, do you want to audition?’ and I was like, ‘Oh s***, yeah.’ Because who wouldn’t? So everyone thinks that this is a publicity stunt or me trying to be like, whatever, but no – music is my passion.”
Conway first teased her appearance on the show during a separate TikTok video back in November. The video opened with Katy Perry exclaiming “well, well, well, let the games begin because Claudia just tried out for American Idol.”
The video then shows Conway inside the studio before her audition as she describes meeting Ryan Seacrest. Conway’s audition will air on the upcoming episode of American Idol on February 14.
