It's hard enough auditioning for The X Factor, but what's it like when you've been living in your famous father's shadow all your life?

Sophie Simmons, the 19-year-old daughter of KISS singer Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed, tried her hand at singing on The X Factor on Wednesday night. The beautiful brunette took on Adele's "Make You Feel My Love" and mostly wowed the judges with her soulful singing.

Demi Lovato offered up some advice to Sophie about practicing her vocal control, Simon praised her unique tone, and Britney said she enjoyed the performance. L.A. Reid hesitated before giving Sophie her only no of the night. But with a trio of 'yes'es from the other judges, Sophie moved forward to the next round of competition.

"I'm so excited to move forward as myself and not as the daughter of someone," the young singer said after she went backstage and received hugs from her proud mom and pop.

This isn't the first time Sophie Simmons has been on reality TV show. She previously appeared on the A&E reality show Gene Simmons Family Jewels for seven seasons. The series was recently canceled, but it doesn't seem like Sophie has had any trouble finding another reality series to showcase her talents.

Will Sophie Simmons make it past Boot Camp and become an X Factor finalist this season? We'll have to keep watching to find out! In the meantime, you can watch her audition in the video below.
