Cowell Gives Standing Ovation During Auditions

LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Danyl Johnson, a 27 year old teacher from Reading, England got Simon Cowell out of his chair Saturday night. The X-Factor, Britain’s version of ‘American Idol’ brought Danyl’s rendition of The Beatles’ "With a Little Help From My Friends" to the stage and Cowell to his feet. A standing ovation first from usually acerbic Cowell. Adjectives such as ‘Wow’ and ‘Unbelievable’ were also voiced by Cowell after a seemingly elated Danyl left the X-factor stage.

"I have been doing this for eight or nine years. Danyl, that was single-handedly the best first audition I have ever heard," said Simon to Danyl. Check out the audition in the link below. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
