Danyl Johnson: X-Factor’s Singing Teacher!

August 23, 2009

Meet Danyl Johnson, X-Factor contestant and singing teacher. See photos, video and a biography here of the contestant who sang the Beatles’ With a Little Help from My Friends, and whose performance Simon Cowell called the best audition he had ever heard on the show. Could he be the Susan Boyle of X-Factor this year?


The enormously talented and handsome 27-year-old from Reading who teaches singing, wowed audience and judges, gaining a standing ovation and high praise with his audition on the series 6 of the popular reality TV talent show in Great Britain.

The Danyl Johnson video reveal an X Factor audition that is is exhilarating, in a word, with the singer performing the Beatles classic With a Little Help from My Friends with strong vocals, charisma and show stopping stage presence. We are henceforth searching for the next Britain’s Got Talent Susan Boyle in every such reality TV talent show, and this remarkable singer may fit the bill.

Judge Louis Walsh said to the singer: ‘Thank God you came in.’

Simon Cowell gave the singer the high praise imaginable. He said, ‘I’ve been doing this for how many years — eight, nine years? That was single-handedly the best audition I have ever heard.’

Of the Danyl Johnson With a Little Help from My Friends performance, judge Dannii Minogue told him: ‘When you see a performance like that, it’s the perfect audition.’

‘You’re a natural born performer,’ judge Cheryl Cole said.

As a biography, Danyl Johnson is 27 years old. He is a singer-songwriter from Reading, England where he has been teaching singing for the past six years. According to his MySpace bio, he previously performed with a band called Empty Spaces.

If Danyl Johnson pictures a singing career, he joins many who have seen his performance in hoping this is not the last he is seen or heard from. Win or lose, it is hard to imagine he will not have a recording contract. Early reports put him as a favorite to win the UK series 6 X-Factor competition in 2009.
