Gene Simmons' daughter Sophie auditions for 'X Factor'

Every now and then, one of our endless singing competitions stumbles upon the offspring of a celebrity - and, it would seem, with mixed results.

On "American Idol" last season, Jim Carrey's daughter Jane tried out during "Idol's" San Diego auditions, only to be swiftly eliminated.

And now, on this season of "The X Factor," we're hearing from KISS rocker Gene Simmons' 19-year-old daughter, Sophie.

The hopeful singer appeared on the show Wednesday along with her parents, and explained to judges Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato and Britney Spears that she'd kept them in the dark about her audition ambitions until the day before.

"They're pretty upset with me," Sophie said. "I just didn't want any help."

And with that she gave a humble rendition of Adele's "Make You Feel My Love," a performance that left L.A. and Demi wanting more but seemed to impress Britney and Simon. (The typically biting judge praised Sophie, saying that he thought she has "a very, very interesting tone," and that he liked that she "took on this song" and made it her own.)

Despite the mixed reviews, Sophie wasn't sent packing.

"I grew up with music, but I didn't want my dad's help with it," she told "The X Factor's" cameras. "It's a big shadow. I really just want to step out from being the daughter of the guy from KISS. I want to be my own person, and hopefully this is a way to show the world who I am."

But does the world want to know this side of Sophie? What did you think of her performance?

    Okay, it wasn't perfect, but she DOES have an interesting voice...the kind of voice that could be really great if she grows into it. It's unique and kind if special. No, her performance wasn't showstopping, but she has a LOT of potential. And I don't care whatsoever who her father is. Oh, and I'm a trained opera singer, so I'm not just talking out of my rear end like a lot of you seem to be.

    Was she great...not really...does it take a big pair of brass balls to get up in front of a crowd that size...hell yes! Before you talk smack about her performance...lets see you get up there and perform. My kid has a great voice and has always had me at her auditions. She has always been given solo parts based on her talent...and it's because she is confident and is brave enough to try...how many of you can say the same.

    For those who comment on her bringing her parents...it's clear she has a great relationship with them...especially for a teenager. And the folks making the negative comments are envious of that relationship.

    Gene Simmons is not camera shy...but he is ambitious and that is why he is successful.

    Adele's "Make You Feel My Love?" Is nobody aware that this song was originally written and recorded by Bob Dylan and has been covered by a slew other artists before Adele?

    I was not going to comment on this blog until I read the last post by (MARY). I have a question for you to start, how much live music have you been exposed to in your life? We first off can not compare that Sophi with Adele until we have a digitally, dubbed, redubbed, remastered, scrubbed album by both. How many times have you heard Adele without all the back ups, tapings and so forth?....I am pretty sure this is why they have the try outs in the first place. Many people nail it and some do not but this is why they all go to boot camp and learn also. So the next time you compare, use two valid singers who have had their music dubbed and remastered in a studio first before you reduce yourself to name calling of some person you do not even know. You are making a personal assumption and not liking someone because their father is Gene Simmons. Just so you know I do help bands in the studio with eliminating noise,mistakes,voice cracks, etc....North Street Band is one and they can be found on youtube as well.

    Now to address the daddy's girl issue. I won a few contests while in school and my father was a big or well known person in our community at the time, but I was always taught that If I want something then go for it regardless. The fact is though even If I did not want to be good because my parent's were, I still love them and would want their support and understanding emotionally or otherwise. It does not matter in the end they are her parent's and what mother or father would not want to be there for their 19 year old child trying out on X-Factor, one of the biggest reality shows around and watched.

    That being said I did not watch the show because of work but heard Sophi would be on it, and that brings me to the gimmicks portion of my blabbing. Does no one else see the irony here? The producers seen a chance at better ratings and a rival situation that would blow other shows out the water? Let's see Sophi, daughter of Rock Legend and Promoter, vs. singing instructor and voice teacher with a grudge? All show and many cameras throughout show focused on this? Why simply not other people? Because it is being set up behind cameras from the producer aspect and ratings persona. Reality television at its best I would say.

    This show is not only about discovering the next new singing sensation but also to see passed the norm and see potential in people, to guide them in the right direction and use their abilities to go for their dreams, which is more then I can say for us sitting on here blogging about it........As for name calling and degrading other's to get your point through, there is no critical thinking or understanding there.

    Wow there are some either jealous or very immature people posting! So what if she brought her dad. The music business is all about who you know anyways so deal with it. At least Sophie went in front of national television and gave it her best shot. If I had a famous dad I would bring him with me too and you all know you would too!

    If she was ANY good, daddy would have exploited her to the max already.

    I've seen Family Jewels a few times and Sophie actually does seem to be a down to earth kid. I like the fact that she did this audition live for everyone to see. She was not the best but I give her a thumbs up. For that other hypocrite with the hat I hope she gets booted early on. I dont think Sophie will make it to the finals because there are better signers but I do wish her the best and that she gets to do her own thing. It cant be easy in life to live in the shadows of a famous parent and kudos to her for trying.

    I had heard Sophie sing on "Family Jewels" before and thought she was really good. I thought she did a great job with this song and deserved the three "yes".

    She has an average voice. What bugs me is that her dad could use all kinds of channels to get her in the business so why take a spot from someone who has no other avenue to get in. She should not have moved on.

    DID NOT GET TO FINISH WATCHING THE SHOW. I HAD TO FINISH MY ROUNDS. HOWEVER SOPHIE AT LEAST WAS HUMBLE, GRACIOUS, AND APPRECIATIVE FOR WHAT SHE WAS DOING. I HOPE THAT THE BIG MOUTH GREEN EYED MONSTER IN THE WHITE HAT GOT NO WHERE AND IF SHE GOT THROUGH THIS ROUND I HOPE SHE DOES NOT MAKE IT TO THE NEXT. SHE IS GOSSIPY, RUDE AND JEALOUS. SHE NEEDS SOME CLASSES IN MANNERS. GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS SOPHIE

      If there is anything that my wife and I despise, it is hypocrisy. First, when Simon was a major part of the production of American Idol, Kiss performed and thus Simon has a major conflict of interest. Second, if Sophie were at all sincere in her statement that she wanted to achieve something on her own, she could have brought friends and even her mother. Instead, she arranged to have her father present so all cameras would be on her big time arrival with her famous rock father dad in tow. Sophie, you insult our intelligence. Your little pre-packaged humble act was so clearly transparent , it made us all want to throw up. You should be ashamed for stealing a spot from a legitimately talented artist in need with no connections or money from having an opportunity which you did not deserve on the merits of your well below average performance. Thoroughly shameful. As far as the panel is concerned, enough KISS-ASS.

      5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

      6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

    I thought she had a nice voice and it was a little different than all the other cookie cutter singers. The only thing that bothered me was she kept saying she didn't want to be known for her celebrity father...then why did she bring him to the audition? She is clearly old enough to go n her own. I believe they would have said yes even if she wasn't a Simmons. Last night was a sympathy win case for the big fat guy in the wheel chair he wasn't a good singer and certainly did NOT have the X-Factor!!

      I agree...I don't know why she took her parents...especially since she insists that "she wants to do it on her own". They could have had a car take her there and pick her up if they were worried about her travelling.

      So I guess anyone that brings their parents or friends or family to auditions is doing it with some ulterior motive. She is still his kid, it is called SUPPORT.

    Gene's kid or NOT.... Sophie was fantastic!!!! When you are watching shows like this and you are busy from a long day... sometimes the audition shows get you to WATCH the audition. Sometimes, the audition isn't so hot so you basically ignore it. Sophie came on, I stopped what I was doing to watch her!!!! I didn't watch her because she is Gene's daughter – I watched her because she was damn good!

    It seems like the only person anyone is talking about on any X Factor blogs is this Sophie Simmons girl. If she doesn’t get anywhere on the show, she will certainly be known now after all of this controversy. My DISH coworker and I discuss the show and he had A LOT to say about this “number.” I’m just glad that I watch it now that I can do so commercial free with my Auto Hop feature. I use the PrimeTime Anytime recordings so I can enough time to watch another show, when, in the past, it would be time for bed.

    You know there will always be haters out there with negative remarks but i give it to sophie for wanting to go and audition for x-factor without her dads help and went like everyone else and waitied their turn. She does have a singing voice I just think it wasn't the best song choice for her voice. She just need a good vocal coach to show her control and breathing excerises. I hope she does well and good luck to her in the music industry b/c its all about having thick skin people will always have something to point out to the world.

    I really doubt that Sophie doesn't want to be known as Gene Simmons kid. I think that is just totally fake and quite pathetic. If she really didn't want to be known as his kid, she wouldn't have had him come on her audition with her where everybody would make a big fuss over him while she pretends to be angry about it all. She's still going to be just Gene Simmons' kid. Why? Because she doesn't have the talent to move past that label, and she's a "reality star" already in that position. She might be an OK person, but she just came across as fake. Unless she really ups her game or she keeps getting special treatment because of her dad, she is not going to make it far on this show.

      I agree I've auditioned myself for a couple of these reality shows and the reality is....98% do not even make past the producers. There are people that I'm sure sang way better and never made it on the show because they did not have a famous father. People like Sophie should not be allowed to audition for these shows as they have their own connections already and are taking away from people who don't. I think it is selfish on her part. She is born to having many connections already, take advantage of it and leave the auditioning for people who don't have anything.
