Jim Carrey's Daughter Auditions on "American Idol"

video platform video management video solutions video player

Jim Carrey's 24-year-old daughter tried out for "American Idol" on last night's episode -- and apparently talent runs in the family!

In a pre-audition interview, Jane Carrey, Jim's daughter with ex-wife Melissa Womer, said it hasn't been easy having such a famous father.

"It’s difficult growing up in a shadow trying to find your way," said Jane. "I feel like there is all this pressure to make it, but better ... I am here to just make my place in the world."

And that she did.

After making Jim's former "In Living Color" co-star Jennifer Lopez (she was a "Fly Girl," remember?) feel old, Jane sang Bonnie Raitt's "Something to Talk About."

She didn't blow the judges away, but sang well enough for them to give her another chance.

After she got a ticket to Hollywood, Jane called her father, who told Ryan Seacrest "She’s so wonderful, she’s amazing I can’t wait for the world to understand what she has. Way to go. Oh my god this is going to be an exciting year."

How do you think she did?

What a refreshingtalent, and she chose a Bonnie Raitt number,.....GOOD FOR YOU JANE ! Yes you are right, living in someone's shadow is difficult, especially in the industry. You stepped away, and now you are in your own light. Great song,.....can only imagine how great you will be with a little polish,.......continued good luck

She doesn't just have 'an average voice' She very talented, I've seen her perform before, I am very ecstatic she is giving AI a shot. Of course it's great for the ratings but she's not just another celebrity kid who got in because of her name, she has a voice to back it up.

She was absolutely wonderful. She is a GREAT singer, very sweet and seems down to earth. I wish her all the luck. The phone call to her dad was just precious (whether it's Jim Carrey or not). I really hate to see "haters" on here, she deserves better than that. Good Luck Jane....I'm a fan!

That Randy Jackson is such a kiss ass. What is his significance on the show? He's ugly as sin.

I don't get how...... Jim Carrey's DAUGHTER, has to go on American IDOL! Out of all places. She has the biggest connection there is and she's scraping at the bottom of the barrel.

She had a time and appt to audition, she showed up, no line , no waiting. That is not making it on your own in my book. That said she had an ok voice, but that is no way to "make it on your own"...

@Angela, yea I get the obvious answer. But why the hell, you know? She can earn her fame in different ways.

She does not have a great voice ~ she has been chosen because of her father and what that will do for the ratings. Too bad, it looks like she really believes she made it for her voice.

Did I hear she is a waitress? Why on earth would Jim Carey allow his daughter to waitress while she has a child at home... that doesn't sound right.
