Jim Carrey's daughter axed from American Idol

Jim Carrey's daughter Jane's singing dreams have been dashed after she was axed from American Idol.

Jane Carrey sang Something to Talk About in front of judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson at the San Diego, California audition, and was unanimously voted through to the next round of the current competition.

She appeared on the show again on Wednesday (08Feb12) in a pre-taped audition for Hollywood Week - but she failed to make the cut.

She says, "I freaked out when I was there so I was really, really shaky and I know I can do way better than that and so I'm really disappointed with myself.

"I talked to my dad and he was kinda comforting. He said, 'I've been said no to a bunch of times' and it worked out well for him in the end so hopefully I have a shot (at stardom)."

In a statement to ETOnline.com, Jim Carrey declares, "I'm very proud of Jane. I believe in her talent as a singer and songwriter. Difficult moments are a necessary step along the path to success."
