The much-awaited 12th season of “American Idol” has officially kicked off with a premiere on Wednesday and one of its newest judges, Nicki Minaj, was obviously blown away by one particular hopeful’s performance during their New York auditions.

The contestant is 17-year-old farm girl and self-confessed country song-lover, Sarah Restuccio, who started her turn by singing Carrie Underwood‘s “Mama’s Song” and, in a shocking twist, ended up rappingĀ Minaj‘s hit “Super Bass” with a few improvised lyrics when asked to sing another song.

The only horrible part of her audition was when we thought Nicki and Mariah would end up feuding again.

It’s definitely worth checking out:
