With the Help of Her Little Sister, Athena Jett Advances on "American Idol"

Sometimes you just need a little push from someone who recognizes how special you are.

Athena Jett, 20, from Las Vegas, auditioned for American Idol on Monday night (March 17). 

Her boldness and vocals should have caught Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan's attention.

She also brought her gorgeous 12-year-old sister (and bestie) Angelina to enhance her chances with excellent energy and a homemade gift for Perry's 4-and-a-half-year-old daughter Daisy Dove.

Perry hugged Angelina after she excitedly gave out a daisy-patterned crocheted pink and white purse, stating Daisy "loves a purse."

Athena described her closeness to her sisters and noted that Angelina is her "biggest fan… she's such a bright ball of energy and believes in me so much."

Perry then had Angelina stand by the piano as Athena shakily sung Sophia James' jazzy 2021 ballad "Somebody New.

Bryan and Angelina cried, with Perry praising Athena's "great voice," but admitting her nerves got the best of her.
