The American Idol judges were in for a surprise when they stopped in San Diego for auditions. Jane Carrey, 24-year-old daughter of Canadian comedian Jim Carrey, was trying out for a spot on the next season with a rendition of the classic song “Something to Talk About” by Bonnie Raitt. Judge Jennifer Lopez was shocked to see Jane, all grown up. “I remember you when you were little. Do you remember me?” she asked. Lopez first met Jane in the early 90s when she worked alongside Mr. Carrey in the television series In Living Color. The junior Carrey managed to get a Golden Ticket from the judges, who didn’t have to think twice about putting her through. She even put in a call to dad to share the exciting news.
