Who’s her coach? None other than her mom, Brenda K. Starr, who also happens to be an old friend of J.Lo.

In the late ’80s, Brenda K. Starr had a big hit called “I Still Believe.”

“I know Brenda from back in the day,” J.Lo told Gianna before her audition began.

Then the 15-year-old showed the judges what she was all about.

Her song choice: “House of the Rising Sun” by The Animals.

And the judges looked very impressed with the teen’s performance.

They were SO impressed, they called Brenda K. Starr into the room to give her daughter the golden ticket to Hollywood.
