Okay, we should have known that Gene Simmons‘ daughter Sophie had some vocal talent, after all she did sing at the KISS star’s wedding last year. Now, we have learned that Sophie Simmons and her father spent Father’s Day on the set of The X Factor on FOX, as Sophie auditioned for the show! More after the jump…
According to TMZ, Sophie Simmons, daughter of Gene Simmons, auditioned for the X Factor yesterday with her father in attendance in the audience. Apparently, Sophie went in and told the judges prior to her audition: “This isn’t about my dad. This is about my audition,” claiming she wanted a fair shot at auditioning.
The gossip site goes on to report that Gene Simmons almost did not make the audition. Sophie called him the night before to tell him she would not be around for Father’s Day because she wanted to give the X Factor audition a shot. Of course, Gene hopped on a private jet and made it there in time to watch his daughter audition – what a nice Father’s Day surprise!
Now we just have to wait to see how Sophie Simmons’ audition went on the show. Do you think she will follow in her father’s footsteps? We can’t wait to see how Simon Cowell will critique her! Sound off below and tell us what you think!
