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.
Save for a few standout performances (which you can view throughout this post) much of the talent on "The X Factor's" stage wasn't that remarkable.
But the talent at the judges' table? They gave us something to watch for.
10:00 p.m. – Thus ends the first night of "X Factor."
So what did we think? Was it worth the wait? Are you in for the season, or is it too soon to tell?
As Britney Spears might say: Hey y'all!
Season 2 of "The X Factor" is premiering tonight with new celebrity judges Spears and Demi Lovato, and we will be live blogging. Join us for the highs, the lows, the tears - and that may be just from the judges.
The two-hour debut runs tonight from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. EST on Fox. Based on the commercials and previews, are you excited for the new season?
We're starting to feel bad for the singers auditioning on tonight's season 2 premiere of "The X Factor," because they're already irrelevant.
Judging from the laser-focus on the pop star's arrival as a new judge, "X Factor" is now Britney's show, and everyone else is just appearing on it.
The competition between NBC's "The Voice" and Fox's "The X Factor" is now a little less friendly.
The two singing competitions are both launching their fall seasons next week, and at first, NBC's "The Voice" was going to premiere on September 10 and September 11.
