Simon Cowell’s competition reality show, X Factor, began airing in the UK last night. The last audition of the night was from the very soulful Danyl Johnson, a 27 year-old teacher from Reading, England.
Simon led a standing ovation, telling Danyl, “that was single-handedly, one of the best first auditions I have ever heard.”
All to the strains of Daughtry’s “What About Now”!
Listen to Danyl’s audition after the jump. He’s a contender!
