VIDEO: KISS – Gene Simmons’ daughter auditions for The X Factor

Sophie Tweed Simmons, the daughter of KISS' Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed, auditioned for The X Factor during Wednesday night’s episode.

When Sophie first introduced herself on stage for some pre-song Q&A, it was new judge Demi Lovato who recognized the young Simmons: “That’s where I know you – you’re Nick’s sister,” said Lovato, before it was further revealed that she was Gene’s daughter.

With her parents watching from the wings, Sophie was asked what they thought of her auditioning for the show.

“They didn’t know I was doing this until yesterday and they’re pretty upset with me,” she said. “I just didn’t want any help.”

Sophie sang the Bob Dylan song “Make You Feel My Love” for her audition (it's been covered by many artists, including Adele) – see how she performed and what the judges decided – check out the video below.
