This is teacher Danyl Johnson’s audition for Britain’s “The X Factor,” a performance of “With a Little Help from My Friends” that resulted in Simon Cowell actually smiling before standing and applauding. And the female judges stopped just short of getting naked and pulling his pants off. They’ve got the hungry eyes for him.
In my ideal world, this talent show codswallop would all get sucked into a black hole. Every Country’s Idol, Every Country’s Got Talent, Look at These People Dance, The X Factor — IT’S ALL THE SAME SHOW. People perform, the judges say the same things, and the audience boos if it isn’t positive. Die. All of you people, just die. Oh, except Danyl Johnson. I want that handsome hunk to sing me to sleep.
