American Idol Premiere Promo Teases Claudia Conway, Plot Twists Video

During this week’s The Bachelor, American Idol teased the new season, promising to offer up new twists and surprises. The spot also teased the notorious Claudia Conway, daughter of former Donald Trump counsel, Kellyanne Conway and anti-Trump activist George Conway (As I write this, George is opining on MSNBC regarding the upcoming impeachment trial…)

UPDATE: ABC posted a few photos. Look. There’s George!


Claudia has become a popular and controversial presence on social media, Tik Tok in particular. Her latest antics included accusing her mother of posting a topless photo of Claude on the Twitter Fleets app (Fleets are similar to Instagram stories and Snapchat–the upload disappears in 24 hours).

She also called out her father for ditching the family and not looking back. It’s no wonder ABC is hyping her audition. Controversy sells, right?

But Claudia can carry a tune, at least. But she doesn’t seem to be pursuing a career in music. ALl evidence points to her experience consisting of singing around the house and crooning on TIk Tok once in awhile. IF she makes it to Hollywood, it’s hard to imagine her going much farther.

American Idol teased her appearance on Instagram. The comments alongside the post are mostly negative. “Her profile is not idol worthy,” one commenter remarked. “why don’t some of these celebrities find morals.”
