American Idol season 13 stopped in Salt Lake City, Utah  for auditions on Wednesday’s episode where the judges found a talented group, including the daughter of a hip-hop legend.

Carmen Delgina, 24, shocked the judges when she revealed that her dad is none other than Wonder Mike from the Sugarhill Gang.

“Oh my God! Are you kidding?” screamed Jennifer Lopez before footage cut to her pops rapping his famous intro to “Rapper’s Delight” in  front of the crowded waiting room.

The judges seemed to be impressed by her lineage, but were they equally impressed by her talent as Carmen opts to sing her rendition of “Tainted Love” by Gloria Jones?

“You’re a talented young woman but I don’t think your vocals are strong enough to get you to the end,” Harry Connick Jr. said. “You have a God given voice it was just very inconsistent so it’s going to be hard to say no to you,” Jennifer Lopez added. Keith Urban noted, “Something was disconnecting.”

Nevertheless,  they all give her a yes for Hollywood while encouraging her to practice.

Check out her audition below and tell us what you think!
