'American Idol': Steven Tyler meets Sarah Sellers and her lips

28-year-old Sarah Sellers is among the first contestants to get the green light for Hollywood during the New Orleans round of "American Idol" auditions -- but was she there for an audition or a paternity test?

The pillowy-lipped marketing analyst tells the judges that she's the only one in her family with big lips, which causes judge Steven Tyler to raise his eyebrows. (Keep in mind that this is the man whose daughter Liv didn't find out who her father was until she was 9 and noticed the uncanny similarities between the rock star and herself.)

But if Tyler was seriously thinking she might be his progeny, he certainly has a funny way of showing it. He aggressively flirted with Sellers -- something that did not sit well with Jennifer Lopez -- and sent her right through to Hollywood, saying she had him when she walked in the room.

To her credit, she deserved the yellow ticket. Her rendition of Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love" made for one of the strongest auditions this season. And it looks as though she's multi-talented, too. There are a few videos of her playing piano on YouTube.

Here's Sellers singing Adele's "Rolling in the Deep":
