Does Danyl Johnson have "it"? Simon Cowell seems to think so.
On Britain's version of American Idol, The X-Factor, Danyl Johnson took on The Beatles hit, "With a Little Help from My Friends". Johnson's version though was more like Joe Crocker's cover.
Danyl Johnson did an exceptional job, but quite frankly, I think it's a bit overrated and doesn't deserve all the exposure it's getting. Sure, Danyl is talented, but let's keep in mind that the band and the backup singers are a BIG part of making this song really work. He had an excellent song choice, but I don't think he's going to be the next Susan Boyle. Speaking of which, it wouldn't surprise me if the producers of The X-Factor have been working hard to try to make it become a viral video. If so, it seems they're reaching their goal because Danyl Johnson is all over the web.
Despite my criticisms, Simon Cowell absolutely loved it and gave him a standing-O. How funny, because on American Idol, unless the person makes the song completely original and their own, Simon tends to complain.
