First, The Beatles. Then, Susan Boyle.
Now, Danyl Johnson is prepared to become the next European singing sensation to visit the United States.
The X Factor contestant, who received glowing praise from Simon Cowell following his rendition of "With A Little Help From My Friends" on Saturday night, will appear on the Today show next week.
As impressive at the 27-year old teacher was on the program, an ITV source admitted: "Not even we expected things to move this quickly."
While the Internet is buzzing over Johnson as the next Boyle, a more apt comparison may be to Leona Lewis. She was named the winner of The X Factor in 2006, after all.
Approximately one million people have watched this balleyhooed performance on YouTube. We've made it easier than ever to watch this Danyl Johnson video. Do so and then leave a comment about the singer!
