The new mother, full-time waitress and part-time singer was revealed as a contestant on the show on Sunday night when she took part in the San Diego, California auditions.
Carrey performed “Something to Talk About” in front of judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson who all voted her through to the next round of the competition.
Jane Carrey, 24, confessed, it has been hard growing-up as Jim Carrey’s daughter, stating, “It is difficult kind of growing-up in the shadow of something and trying to find your place in the world underneath this huge shadow.”
Jennifer Lopez was stunned when she discovered Jane was Jim Carrey’s daughter. Lopez was a dancer on the sketch comedy show, “In Living Color”, on which Jim was an up-and-coming comedian. Jane was a baby at the time.
Jennifer exclaimed, “I remember you when you were little. Do you remember me? I was one of the Fly Girls.”
Jane Carrey responded, “I think I was, like, two.”
