Video of the Day: Danyl Johnson From The X-Factor

Vote in the “Danyl Johnson v. Susan Boyle” Poll by clicking here.

Being the reality tv buff that I am, I couldn’t help but to post this video.  This is the much hyped Danyl Johnson from Britain’s “X-Factor”.  Simon’s calling his audition the best first audition he’s ever seen.  Could this be a more stable version of Susan Boyle?

Does Danyl’s performance live up to its hype?  Leave your comments below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Don’t forget to bookmark The Conservative Journal and sign up for the RSS Feed and the daily e-mail newsletter.

Video of the Day: Shaheen Jafargholi from Britain’s Got Talent

Wow, Britain’s Got Talent sure is having a good year.  This season has resulted in two massively buzzworthy performances, first with Susan Boyle, and second with 12 year old Shaheen Jafargholi.  For 12 year’s old (or any age for that matter) this guy’s got a killer voice.  All this success outside of the American Idol age range of 16-28 makes me wonder if my maybe they should increase the age range?
