Juan Pablo Galavis' Daughter Camila Auditions for “American Idol” and Becomes the Youngest Contestant This Season — Watch!

The aspiring singer was just 4-years-old when her father appeared on season 18 of 'The Bachelor' in 2014

The daughter of a former reality TV star is trying her hand at a competition series!

On Sunday night's episode of American Idol, former participant on The Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis' daughter Camila auditioned in front of judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Not only did the 14-year-old singer charm the judging panel, she brought out her father who spoke about how supportive he's been of her musical aspirations.

When Galavis first appeared before the judges, she played it cool by simply telling them her age, that she's a freshman in high school and originally from Venezuela but living in Miami.

As Perry, 39, asked whether the aspiring artist had a musical family, she casually admitted that her father was on The Bachelor and revealed that he was the season 18 star, 42. "You mean the TV show on ABC?" the "California Gurls" singer asked, while Bryan, 47, noted, "He's dreamy."

The reality series then cut to footage of Juan Pablo on The Bachelor, which aired in 2014 when he was a single father to then-4-year-old Camila.

The American Idol hopeful eventually brought out her father and the two sweetly opened up about their relationship.

Perry asked the former TV personality, "You know what it’s like to be on reality television, you trying to throw her in this lion’s den?” to which he responded, "Not really. I tried to hold as much.”

Camila confirmed that it was all her ambition that led her to being in front of the judges when she raised her hand and smiled after Perry asked, "Whose idea was this?"

“She’s been singing since she was little, and the opportunity came, and she wanted to do it,” Juan Pablo shared. "I said, 'I don't know if you're old enough.' That was last year. 'Well, maybe next year.' And then here she is."

The vocalist admitted that it would make her feel more comfortable if her father stayed to watch her perform, so he took a seat at the piano and she broke into a rendition of the Venezuelan singer-songwriter Joaquina's ballad “Rabia."

Camila proved to have an alluring sound with vocals fit for a Latin pop star, becoming more confident throughout the performance and even looking at her father at one point to see his reaction.

Because her vocals did sound "young" at times, the judges were a bit hesitant in their discussion of whether she should make it to Hollywood.

"You've got a good voice. It sounds a little young. It's got lots of personality. It's very youthful," Perry said. "I'm just looking for some of those notes that could come out and really compete with the other contestants."

"Love your confidence. Love your personality. It's very listenable," the country music star added. "I think your biggest hurdle is the big, high notes are still giving you a little bit of trouble. I mean you're so young, I just don't know if you're ready yet."

Richie, 74, admitted that he agreed with Bryan in terms of her inexperience and ultimately gave her a no.

The "Country Girl" singer continued, "I think the right producer could take your voice and cut a hit album on you right now. But in this competition, I think you're going to get swallowed up a little bit."

Perry ended up giving Camila the go-ahead because of her "pop voice" and how popular Spanish music is in the industry right now, which convinced Bryan to also give her the green light to compete in the next round. "I wrote no on my page, but then I told you the right producer could make you a hit song,” he said. “So, I’m giving you a yes just based on that because you've got a radio tone.”

Camila is now the youngest contestant on the 22nd season of American Idol.

She's also not the only child of a celebrity to make it on the show this season. Country music legend Loretta Lynn's granddaughter Emmy Russell auditioned and ended up wowing the entire panel with her performance of an original song titled "Skinny."

"I think I am a little timid, and I think it is because I want to own my voice," the 25-year-old told the three hitmakers on the late February episode. "That's why I want to challenge myself and come out here."

Despite her nerves, the Nashville-based singer was commended for her songwriting abilities and original sound — earning a yes from all three judges to make her way to Hollywood.

American Idol returned for season 22 on Feb. 18. This Sunday's episode featured the last of the auditions, so fans can expect the Hollywood round to kick off next week.
