"Does your father know you are here?" American Idol judge Randy Jackson asked a budding 24-year-old contestant.
"Why, who's your father?" chipped in a confused Jennifer Lopez.
Seconds later all was revealed as J Lo realised that the brunette singer up on stage was none other than the daughter of Hollywood star Jim Carrey.
"Oh my god, when did this happen?!" screamed Jennifer, who'd last seen Jim's girl when she was just two years old.
Jane Carrey, who is married and has a son wants to step out into the limelight and "make her place in the world."
She said: “It’s difficult growing up in a shadow trying to find your way. I feel like there is all this pressure to make it, but better.”
But by the looks of things she has nothing to worry about as the panel unanimously put her through to the next round.
"I like you, I like the voice, I like the potential," said Randy.
An ecstatic Jane then rushed out to her waiting family jumping for joy and immediately called her famous dad who sounded very excited about the news.
"She’s so wonderful, she’s amazing, I can’t wait for the world to understand what she has. Way to go!", he told host Ryan Seacrest.
