Kaley Cuoco has acting chops, but her sister may just have the voice!

Turns out the "Big Bang Theory" star isn't the only Cuoco with talent. On Monday's premiere of "The Voice," Kaley's sister, Briana Cuoco, got the news that she scored a blind audition with judges Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine on the Emmy-winning NBC talent competition.

The episode will air soon (Briana tweeted, "There are 5 nights of blind auditions -- I do not know when my ep will air but it's comin"), but insiders are already saying this girl can sing.

"Big Bang" star Mayim Bialik told Access Hollywood, "She has a beautiful voice. She is phenomenal. She's very, very talented."

And actor Jim Parsons joked: "We give Kaley a lot of hell like 'Oh so finally the world is going to see the really talented Cuoco!'

Cuoco joins other celeb relatives who've turned up on reality TV competitions.

In 2012, Jim Carrey's daughter, Jane, popped up at the San Diego auditions for "American Idol." The 24- year old impressed judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson with her rendition of Bonnie Raitt's "Something To Talk About," nabbing a golden ticket to Hollywood.

The best part? Her reunion with former "Fly Girl" J.Lo, who said: "I remember you when you were little!" (J.Lo worked with Jane's dad on "In Living Color" in the early 1990s.)

While Jane Carrey said she wanted to make her own "place in the world," the judges sent her home on the first day of Hollywood Week.

Several sports star's offspring have made their way to TV talent shows. Former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Joe Magrane's daughter, Shannon, finished in 11th place on Season 11 of "Idol." (Who can forget when Steven Tyler told the baseball pro his hometown was "Hot, humid and happening… just like your daughter"), while "Idol" Season 6 winner Jordin Sparks is actually the daughter of former NFL star Phillippi Sparks.

And David Osmond (yes he's from that Osmond family!) also auditioned for "American Idol." The nephew of Donny and Marie Osmond -- who suffers from multiple sclerosis -- auditioned for the show back in Season 8. At the time his dad, Alan Osmond, said, "He's got a challenge and he's whipping it, because he's tough ... and he's not doing it because he's an Osmond."

Even reality TV stars have paved the way for their lesser known sibs. Willie Hantz, the brother of "Survivor" legend Russell Hantz, landed a spot on last year's edition of "Big Brother." This after Hantz's nephew, Brandon, also tried his luck on "Survivor" (and failed miserably).

And the sister of "Big Brother 13" winner Rachel Reilly also hung out at the "Big Brother" house for a summer. Elissa Slater didn't win this year's game, but she walked away with a $25,000 America's Choice prize.

Next up, the reality TV sisters will make a cameo on "The Bold and the Beautiful." According to TV Guide, the soap's reality TV invasion will also feature "Big Brother" alums Brendon Villegas, Jeff Schroeder and Howard Overby, plus Malcolm Freberg from "Survivor."
