Danyl Johnson – “Best first audition I have ever seen,” Simon Cowell

Britain's X Factor just set its audience on fire with another vocal discovery, 27 year old school teacher Danyl Johnson.

danylBritain’s X Factor just set its audience on fire with another vocal discovery, 27 year old school teacher Danyl Johnson.

Danyl is so accomplished, not to mention easy on the eye, that it’s hard not to believe he is a professional.

He sings a Joe Cocker cover and has the stadium audience in raptures within seconds. Total feelgood telly.

Simon Cowell gave Danyl a standing ovation and described it as “single-handedly the best first audition I have ever seen.” Lookout Susan Boyle.

ITV cleverly disallows embedding of clips so check it yourself here.

(on another note…these X Factor directors cut this show so brilliantly…. they put in every storytelling shot in the book).

  1. I’ve been very excited waiting for The X Factor to arrive, its production is so much better than Oz Idol.

    I agree, i cant understand why no one has picked it up here in Oz, it could be quite clever if another network did as it could show up Idol for ten. Although i do still love Idol.

  2. Why isnt X factor screened in Australia – I simply dont get it.
    With our very own Dannii Minogue featuring as a judge, Im surprised that channel 7 or Foxtel haven’t picked this up.
    Channel 7 could def screen this to maybe challenge & thankfully bury Australian Idol!

  3. He has a really good voice. He certainly has stage presence and knows how to work an audience. It will be interesting to see what he does next. I’d like to see him ‘sing’ a bit more in his next performance.

  4. Whatever you think of his talent, he certainly puts any of the current AusIdol contestants to shame.

    As does the production department. They’ve surely used up every idea ever dreamed up on that one!

  5. He’s good, really good…but not startlingly so

    Simon must be slightly blinded by all the dollar signs he can see…if Susan Boyle can rake in millions, think of all the money a young, good looking guy might make for Simon’s company.
