In February 2014, Carly Rae Jepsen made her acting debut as the title character in the Broadway version of ''Film/{{Cinderella}}'', and in March the next year released her comeback single [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77PzXCKDyVQ "I Really Like You"]]. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qV5lzRHrGeg Its music video]] quickly became a MemeticMutation for depicting Creator/TomHanks lip-syncing the song while going on his typical day. In August 2015, her second album ''E-MO-TION'' was released to very positive reviews. The song "Run Away with Me" has been particularly subject to critical acclaim. Jepsen also provided the vocals for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLw8at0VT1M "Everywhere You Look"]], the rearranged theme song for the Creator/{{Netflix}} show ''Series/FullerHouse'', which premiered on February 26, 2016.

She's also the best-selling ''Canadian Idol'' contestant in terms of singles, as well as the only one popular outside her native Canada. It became the very definition of a viral hit, spawning dozens upon dozens of parody videos and celebrity covers over the summer of 2012.

* TheRunnerUpTakesItAll: For a while, ''Series/CanadianIdol'' Season 5 winner Brian Melo had the best career of the singers that season, if only because his winner's single hit #11 on the Canadian Hot 100. A few of the winners such as Ryan Malcolm and Kalan Porter had number one hits on the old Canadian charts, but that chart used the outdated method of counting only single sales (for example, Music/EltonJohn's "Candle in the Wind" remake stayed in the top 20 for over three years!). Four years later, third-placer and then two-hit wonder Jepsen releases the single "Call Me Maybe," which not only became the show's first top 10 hit, but also reached number-one. But that was only just the beginning. Shortly after the song reached the top, Music/JustinBieber tweeted that he was a fan of the song and made a video of it [[SelenaGomez with]] [[AshleyTisdale his]] [[BigTimeRush friends]]. With millions of people hearing about Carly for the first time ever, her song proceeded to top over ten other national charts including the Hot 100 in the United States, and become a full-fledged [[MemeticMutation meme]], especially after a Barack Obama-inspired parody was released. "Call Me Maybe" remains the only song by a ''Canadian Idol'' contestant to be a major hit outside of Canada; likewise Jepsen is the only act from the show most non-Canadians are familiar with.

* TheRunnerUpTakesItAll: For a while, ''CanadianIdol'' Season 5 winner Brian Melo had the best career of the singers that season, if only because his winner's single hit #11 on the Canadian Hot 100. A few of the winners such as Ryan Malcolm and Kalan Porter had number one hits on the old Canadian charts, but that chart used the outdated method of counting only single sales (for example, Music/EltonJohn's "Candle in the Wind" remake stayed in the top 20 for over three years!). Four years later, third-placer and then two-hit wonder Jepsen releases the single "Call Me Maybe," which not only became the show's first top 10 hit, but also reached number-one. But that was only just the beginning. Shortly after the song reached the top, JustinBieber tweeted that he was a fan of the song and made a video of it with his friends. With million of people hearing about Carly for the first time ever, her song proceeded to top over ten other national charts including the Hot 100 in the United States, and become a full-fledged [[MemeticMutation meme]], especially after a Barack Obama-inspired parody was released. "Call Me Maybe" remains the only song by a ''Canadian Idol'' contestant to be a major hit outside of Canada; likewise Jepsen is the only act from the show most non-Canadians are familiar with.

* SlutShaming: The "Call Me Maybe" video is a painful example of the contortions a woman has to go through to express sexuality without being called a slut. She sees a beautiful man, and is physically pushed by her friends into trying to attract his interest, because she obviously can't just go up to him. Then, ostensibly having attracted his attention through [[HilarityEnsued her zany sitcom shenanigans]], she hands him her number, making it a point to say she's not a slut and ''never'' does this ("I just met you / and this is crazy"), before handing him her number and pointedly ceding all future authority and activity to him ("so call me maybe"). Then she reiterates that she's not a slut ("and all the other boys / try to chase me"). All so she can hit on the boy next door. One to ten she still gets called a slut.

* TheRunnerUpTakesItAllTheRunnerUpTakesItAll: For a while, ''CanadianIdol'' Season 5 winner Brian Melo had the best career of the singers that season, if only because his winner's single hit #11 on the Canadian Hot 100. A few of the winners such as Ryan Malcolm and Kalan Porter had number one hits on the old Canadian charts, but that chart used the outdated method of counting only single sales (for example, Music/EltonJohn's "Candle in the Wind" remake stayed in the top 20 for over three years!). Four years later, third-placer and then two-hit wonder Jepsen releases the single "Call Me Maybe," which not only became the show's first top 10 hit, but also reached number-one. But that was only just the beginning. Shortly after the song reached the top, JustinBieber tweeted that he was a fan of the song and made a video of it with his friends. With million of people hearing about Carly for the first time ever, her song proceeded to top over ten other national charts including the Hot 100 in the United States, and become a full-fledged [[MemeticMutation meme]], especially after a Barack Obama-inspired parody was released. "Call Me Maybe" remains the only song by a ''Canadian Idol'' contestant to be a major hit outside of Canada; likewise Jepsen is the only act from the show most non-Canadians are familiar with.

* IncompatibleOrientation: At the end of the video for "Call Me Maybe", it turns out that the dude she's been obsessing over is gay. This is followed by Carly giving an expression of pure, undiluted "WTF". And the guy is interested in the guitarist in Carly's band. It's implied that this too is a case of this.

A competitor on the fifth season of ''CanadianIdol'' (she placed third), she released her debut album on September 30, 2008. However, her career didn't really take off until the release of "[[BreakthroughHit Call Me Maybe]]" in 2011, which has reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Radio/AmericanTop40 and Pop Songs chart.
