A former Bachelor just crashed the American Idol audition room. In a teaser clip for the March 23 episode of Idol, published by Entertainment Tonight, The Bachelor alum Juan Pablo Galavis makes a surprise appearance as his daughter, Camila Galavis, attempts to impress judges Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry.

“One Idol performance will be music to Bachelor Nation’s ears,” host Ryan Seacrest teases. The clip then shows part of Camila’s audition, during which she reveals her father’s identity to the judges.

After the big reveal, Juan Pablo enters the room. “Wow he’s dreamy,” Bryan says of the former reality star. Perry (who’s engaged to, and shares a daughter with, Orlando Bloom) jokingly asks, “You’re single?” Juan Pablo then takes the opportunity to get flirty, replying, “You too?”

Juan Pablo welcomed his daughter Camila with ex-girlfriend Carla Rodríguez in 2009. Fans were first introduced to the Bachelor star on the ninth season of The Bachelorette in 2013. A year later, he fronted The Bachelor Season 18, and chose contestant Nikki Ferrell as his winner — though he didn’t propose to her. The pair ended their relationship in late 2014.

In 2016, Juan Pablo began dating Venezuelan TV host and model Osmariel Villalobos. The couple tied the knot in the summer of 2017, before announcing their divorce two years later.

For her part, Perry is currently engaged to Bloom, with whom she shares a daughter, Daisy Dove. The singer also announced in February that the current season of American Idol will be her last, bringing her years-long tenure as a judge to an end. She first joined the ABC reality competition show in 2018, alongside fellow panelists Richie and Bryan.

“I think this will probably be my last season for Idol,” she revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “I love Idol so much. It’s connected me with the heart of America. But I need to feel that pulse of my own beat.”
