Jim Carrey's Daughter Auditions for 'American Idol'

Check out Jim Carrey‘s daughter, Jane, auditioning on a recent episode of American Idol!

The 24-year-old aspiring singer, who’s a single mother and works as a waitress, sang Bonnie Raitt‘s “Something to Talk About” for judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson.

“I used to work with Jim. I remember you when you were little! Do you remember me? I was one of the fly girls,” J. Lo, who worked with Jim on In Living Color, said.

Jane called her famous dad after getting the golden ticket to Hollywood. “She’s amazing. I can’t wait for the world to understand what she has,” Jim said on speakerphone.

Also pictured inside: Jim and Steve Carell on the set of their new movie, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone on Tuesday (January 24) in Los Angeles.

I think if a contestant knows someone (particularly) a judge off the show..that would disqualify them from competing. Seriously are the going to be objective about a famous stars child? The others competing against her have no chance.

# 2

wow she has the same exact smile like his dad.

# 3

If her name was Jane Smith, and her dad was a bus driver, would she be going to Hollywood?

# 4

I disagree, she is working for it and not bedding some record producer to make it , and stay overexposed for years even when your fans are no longer buying your music with every undeserved award thrown at you.

# 5

Carrey has the connections and money to buy her a career yet he is letting her do it on her own unlike some celebs that have everything handed to them…Paltrow, J&W Smiths, Stella Macca,…

# 6

She was OK, but there’s no way she’ll be the next American Idol. I’d be shocked if she even makes it past Hollywood.

# 7

i get she wanna do on her own,but other contestants dont have “jim-carrey”as a dad? so …thats said, those other contestants kinda dont have chances,she better have the talent

can see the resemblance to her dad.
she’s very pretty.
nice smile.

# 9

why on god’s green earth did she ever waitress??
there is no way she has to. her dad is a gazillionaire.
he doesnt have to support her completely but at least enough so she does not waitress!

the photos of them as she’s growing up are super sweet.

i like jennifer’s critique, she’s right about connecting.
i think jane sounded really good.

she’s going to hollywood, yah! :)
go jane!

“tell father i said what’s up, man. tell him to holla at tha dogg” lol
randy is funny man.

OMG, almost in tears when she calls her dad in the end.
how proud and excited he must be.
and how nice to be a daughter and be able to share that good news with your parent.
love it.

I admire that she would work in a job that most in hollywood would consider beneath them instead of clubbing doing drugs it builds character and shows nothing is taken for granted …Congrats to whoever raised her.

Jennica Panettiere @ 01/25/2012 at 10:51 am

Yes, it’s lovely that she still works as a waitress even though her father has enough money to set her up for life. I understand that she probably wants to look down to earth and to me you can just tell she genuinely is.

Jennica Panettiere @ 01/25/2012 at 10:52 am

Oh and yes she’s really pretty. She actually reminds me of Jaycee Dugard, that girl who was released from kidnap a few years ago.

Shes so pretty and has some nice voice..

She’s very charismatic. I was glad she made it through just for the opportunity to see more of her. And like the above poster said, congrats to whomever raised her. She does seem very down to earth and un-jaded. As for her voice, it doesn’t seem to be up to par with the quality of an AI winner’s, but I agree there is some potential there to at least be given a round at Hollywood.

Ummmm, am I the only one who noticed all the Steve Carrell photos attached to that???

She speaks very intelligent and seems very personable!


i mean he has like hundreds of million of dollars, you would think she would hae an education, or atleast he can open her a business, maybe use some connections, if i had that much money i would never let my child to work as a waitress and make minimum wage

@Jennica Panettiere: it’s not noble to be a waitress when you come from money, it’s just dumb. it’s not like she is working at a homeless shelter or in greenpeace.
if she wanted to make $ on her own, she could have done something more productive like college or a lowly internship somewhere.

I’m sorry, but I don’t care who her dad is. She cannot sing.
