Gianna Isabella walked into her audition wearing a simple white romper and blew all three of the judges away.

The 15-year-old New Jersey native is following in the footsteps of her mom, Brenda K. Starr, who was a huge pop star in the '80s, with her most notable hit being "I Still Believe". Her mom used to work with other famed acts like Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey

When Gianna told the panel who her mom was, Lopez remembered her instantly and got excited to hear more from the young girl. 

Taking the stage, Gianna announces she's singing one of the oldest folk songs in history, "The House Of The Rising Sun" and starts an incredible a cappella rendition you have to see to believe! 

The teenager is one of the most talented acts all three of the judges have seen this far and you can see their disbelief as she continues through the song. 

Before they vote, they decide to bring her mom into the room so she can be there for their vote! All we can say is: the room was full of tears! 

Check out this amazing performance in the video below!

LYRICS BELOW

There is a house down in New Orleans they call the rising sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor girl and me, oh God, I'm one
My mother was a tailor, she sewed these new blue jeans
My sweetheart was a gambler, Lord, down in New Orleans
Now, the only thing a gambler needs is a suitcase and a trunk
And the only time when he's satisfied is when he's on a drunk
He fills his glasses up to the brim and he'll pass the cards around
And the only pleasure he gets out of life is rambling from town to town

Oh, tell my baby sister not to do what I have done
But shun that house in New Orleans they call the rising sun
Well, with one foot on the platform and the other foot on the train
I'm going back to New Orleans to wear that ball and chain
I'm going back to New Orleans, my race is almost run
I'm going back to end my life down in the rising sun
There is a house in New Orleans they call the rising sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor girl and me, oh God, I'm one
