Jim Carrey's Daughter Tries Out for 'American Idol'...and Makes It

"I was dumb and dumber to doubt this girl."

When the "American Idol" judges heard Jane's voice, they had to put her through to Hollywood. Her audition, in which she sang "Something to Talk About," was excellent. But that's not the whole story. See, Jane isn't just plain Jane -- she's actually Jane Carrey, daughter of comedian Jim.

During last night's special episode of the popular talent show, the country was introduced to Jane during a "meet the contestants" type segment. She talked about living in her dad's shadow, and the producers even revealed her status in a clever way. Then she surprised them when she revealed she was more than just a celebrity's daughter. Here's the audition:

And here's how one critic described it:

The aforementioned daughter of Jim, Jane talked wistfully about living in her famous father's shadow and how difficult it was for her to establish her own identity as a performer. At first I was slightly turned off by this; I mean, after seasons of single parents, widowers, orphans, illness and accident survivors, struggling artists living out of cars (or tents), etc., "My dad is an A-list millionaire actor" didn't seem like a very heartstring-tugging sob story. But then Jane sang, and all was forgiven. Her soulful cover of Bonnie Raitt's "Something To Talk About" showed raw promise, and when she called her dad after she got her golden ticket and he sounded so elated and supportive, it warmed my heart. I was dumb and dumber to doubt this girl. (Heh.)
