Zareh Isa decided to give her mother Nadia Turner a surprise of her lifetime by deciding to audition for 'American Idol'. Long-time fans of the hit singing competition might recognize Nadia as the finalist from Season 4. Zareh,22, brought her mother to the audition venue with the ruse of going for a mother-daughter spa day, when the show's host Ryan Seacrest heard her story he was pretty amused.

Finally, Zareh decided to come clean and told her mother that she was auditioning for the hit ABC show. Nadia was pleasantly surprised and pretty proud of her daughter's decision to follow in her footsteps. The young stylist then proceeded to perform Jazmine Sullivan's 'Bust Your Windows'. The show's judges- Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan, were pretty impressed by her vocals. After showering her with praises and pointing out how Naida and Zareh were generational 'American Idol' contestants, they decided to hand her the golden ticket to Hollywood. While the judges were impressed with her performance, sadly the same can't be said for fans.
