The Truth About Claudia Conway And American Idol

Claudia Conway — daughter to Kellyanne Conway, who served as Donald Trump's former advisor — has made some new headlines. On Nov. 15, 2020, Claudia jumped on TikTok and shared with her 1.4 million followers that she was auditioning for American Idol, according to the New York Post.

"Hey guys, I'm here at American Idol confessional," Claudia said in the video. "I met Ryan Seacrest today, and I have my audition soon." The teenager added that she was "very, very nervous, but very excited." During the video, Claudia showed the film crew and the American Idol logo was visible behind her, as TMZ noted, so it looks like one of America's most outspoken teenagers might be giving us some memorable performances. Honestly, she suits being on TV.

The comments section was flooded with praise and encouragement for the aspiring singer, so she's clearly got her fanbase behind her! As TMZ pointed out, Claudia turned 16 earlier in 2020, so she just reached the minimum age requirement to appear on Idol. We wonder what Kellyanne thinks about all this.

A look at Claudia Conway's history on social media

Claudia Conway has become a well-known figure on social media, especially TikTok, where she shares her political opinions which are notably counter to those of her mother, Kellyanne Conway, who served as Donald Trump's advisor. Kellyanne's husband and father to Claudia, is lawyer George Conway, who is a co-founder of the Lincoln Project, a group of "never-Trump" Republicans, according to HuffPost. Clearly, there are a lot of differing opinions in one household!

Things came to a head on Aug. 23, 2020 when Claudia announced that she was seeking emancipation from her parents "after years of childhood trauma and abuse," according to Bustle. It was only hours after Claudia's statement that Kellyanne announced that she was stepping down from the role of being Trump's senior advisor. According to the outlet, George also announced that he was leaving the Lincoln Project.

Claudia has been outspoken on social media, expressing her support for liberal and leftist organizations. She has also, according to Bustle, been extremely vocal about her disdain for Trump. At least one thing is certain: Should Claudia make it on the next season of American Idol, she'll know exactly how to use her ever-expanding platform!
