It's hard to compare when it comes to Carrie Underwood's vocals, but in the stunning American Idol audition below, 20-year-old Sonika Vaid channeled her inner Carrie and gave it her all.

Vaid flew all the way from the tiny island of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, to Denver, Colorado to show the judges she has what it takes to be America's next superstar! 

Prior to her performance, her biggest fan (aka her mother) gave her an inspirational pep talk. She told her daughter,  

I really feel that you're meant for this.

We would have to agree... 

Vaid took the floor and immediately captivated the judges with her cover of Underwood's touching song, "Look At Me," from her album, Play On

The three judges sat there dazzled by Vaid's natural talent. Each judge began applauding the young singer, showering her with compliments. 

Judge Harry Connick, Jr. told the contestant that she has what it takes,

That was a perfect performance. I was totally engaged. This is one of the only times this particular season that I saw somebody that I actually think could win this thing. With a voice like that, that's a pure, God given voice. 

Keith Urban followed up with, "How beautiful that you just let it go too... Just so beautiful."

While Jennifer Lopez congratulated the newest member of the American Idol competition, "It was gorgeous, you're going to go to Hollywood!"

Vaid couldn't hold back her emotion, as she teared up thanking the judges for their kind words. 

We can't wait to see what Sonika Vaid has for us next! Congratulations! 

Check out the breathtaking performance below. 

LYRICS BELOW

I would bet my life, like I bet my heart
That you were the one, baby
I've never been so sure of anything before
You driving my heart crazy

I can't hold out, I can't hold back now
Like I've done before

Darling, look at me
I've fallen like a fool for you
Darling, can't you see
I'd do anything you want me to

I tell myself I'm in too deep
Then I fall a little farther
Every time you look at me

How do you do that, babe?
Make me feel like I'm the only girl alive for you
I don't know what it is that makes me fall like this
First time in your arms, I knew

The way you held me, I knew that this could be
What I've been waiting to find

Darling, look at me
I've fallen like a fool for you
Darling, can't you see
I'd do anything you want me to

I tell myself I'm getting in too deep
Then I fall a little farther
Every time you look at me

Every time you look at me
