X Factor singing sensation Danyl Johnson, who pulled off the perfect audition on the opening show to the 2009 series of The X Factor on Saturday evening has turned into an overnight YouTube sensation, in much the same way as Susan Boyle did from Britain’s got Talent.
The 27-year-old teacher stunned the judges, and even got in a few cheeky winks with Cheryl and Dannii while performing his rendition of ‘With a Little Help from My Friends‘. Simon Cowell gave Daniel Johnson a standing ovation, and proceeded to tell him: “I have been doing this job for eight or nine years and that was single-handedly the best first audition i have ever heard.“
Simon Cowell already has pound signs over Danyl’s head, as he is now set to become a huge star in America, after being invited to appear on The Today Show in the US.
It’s still early days for Danyl Johnson, and The X Factor, however the drama teacher is already being hailed as the natural successor to Susan Boyle. He does, however, have a long way to go before attaining her level of success, as Boyle’s performance received almost 200million YouTube views. In 4 days, Danyl Johnson’s YouTube video has just over 1.3million views.
Danyl Johnson’s first audition was broadcast on Saturday Night, and both Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue appeared to be smitten by Johnson. Which is great news as Danyl Johnson already has the hots for Cheryl Cole AND Simon Cowell.
Cheryl told Danyl: “You are a natural born performer and I will take you in my category right now,” while Dannii told him: “There’s a few people that want to go back to school now because of you.“
Danyl Johnson has a little experience in the music industry, after he disclosed at the weekend that he has appeared in two boybands, and also has the hots for both men and women. He finds Simon Cowell as attractive as the female judges.
“I don’t like to conform or be put into one box or another, and if I’m honest, all the judges are good looking. If i like someones personality it doesn’t really matter what they look like or what sex they are,” said Danyl.
