Kiara Lanier, who once performed in front of President Obama, showcased her stunning talent on Thursday’s “American Idol.”

The Chicago native gave a flawless audition, covering Celine Dion’s “Prayer.”

As soon as Lanier stopped singing, all four judges said “Wow” repeatedly.

“When you can only hear ‘wow’s,” Nicki Minaj told her, “you know that was pretty freakin’ pretty.”

Randy Jackson said he was “really impressed,” and Mariah Carey noted that Lanier has “huge potential.”

Added Keith Urban, “I loved, it too. You came ready to be a star.”
