The first pseudo-star of Season 11 was Jane Carrey, daughter of comedian Jim Carrey, who showed up to audition for “Idol” in San Diego and exceeded all expectations by being … at least decent. After giving Jennifer Lopez a panic over her age – the former Fly Girl remembered seeing Jane when she was a toddler visiting dad on the set of “In Living Color” – Carrey launched into a version of Bonnie Raitt’s “Something to Talk About” that got a yes from the trio of judges. The 24-year-old waitress is now ready to take her first steps out of her famous father’s shadow. -Jeff Royer
