    first breakout star? are you joking? theres been SO many amazing people. it's just cause he's hot. very hot.

  2. 2

    There is noway he was the best audition on this years x factor! Youre only saying that cause hes american, that daniel and the girl from trinidad and tobago were much better!

  3. 3

    It wasn't THAT amazing.
    He should have picked a better song to sing.
    Kings of Leon shouldn't be covered.

  4. 4

    super cute and a good voice!

    but perez! danyl johnson is still the best! have you seen him? check him on utube if you havent, his incrediable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ox

  5. 5

    i just watched the show and im in love to, he so gorgeous. lets hope hes got past bootcamp

  6. 6

    yeh he was alright……..but there were better people in earlier episodes…

  7. 7

    Best Audition!? What!? He wasn't that good. There's been loads of people alot better than him.

  8. 8

    oh im still swooning hes yummy

  9. 9


  10. 10

    xD he is hawt.

  11. 11

    wow….he's soo damn cute.

  12. 12

    Ok, so he was great, but I think it's nonsense that the rules of American Idol state that you must be a US citizen yet X Factor gets people from all over the world competing in it. Not really fair I don't think.

    PS he was amazing though

  13. 13

    Um, he's not very good.

  14. 14

    He was sooo not the best, just cos hes american, thats so stupid! the past shows have shown MANY better singers than him, although he is hot as hell.

  15. 15

    have american people heard of american idol stay in your own country just cos you never become famous biches

  16. 16

    Eh the FIRST breakout star was weeks ago and theres been one pretty much every week since. Not to mention this guy might be cute but he's REALLY not that great.

  17. 17

    your a joke…….watch Danyl Johnson who was on the first audition airing…I will be you $100 he will be the winner…get to know the talent and not the size of the outling on his crouch. You obviously have no taste in talent as you do in fashion…just sayin

  18. 18

    Seemed like karaoke to me. He's got an incredible face, though.

  19. 19

    Re: Melissa82 – also in the uk we can accept a gay person winning a talent show unlike american idol viewers

  20. 20

    Re: Melissa82 – Probably because there are like 30 different "Idol" shows for individual countries. Pop Idol, Australian Idol, Superstar, Nouvelle Star. All the "American Idol" of that country. There has also been World Idol. Idiot.

  21. 21

    I wouldn't say he's one the best singers but he is one the hottest and i love his Accent.

  22. 22

    simon cowell

  23. 23

    Love it!

  24. Bloom says – reply to this


    The video & the audio are not the same speed. Very annoying.

  25. 25

    I'm in love too!!! *-* yeah..WOW

  26. 26

    Hes just good. Nothing amazing. I still like Danyl Johnson better

  27. 27

    In no way shape or form was this the best performance. Danyl Johnson was by far the best so far and he's BRITISH!

  28. 28

    Watch out, Perez. The look on Cheryl and Danni's faces when he walked out on stage indicate they feel much like you do.

  29. 29

    i thought he sucked…..other people are better this year

  30. 30

    I THINK Perez is trying to make a certain someone (oo7ish) jealous.

    JUst my "opinion",

    Anya Blah, blah, blah…. The Caped Cru-sa-dera of the Trailer Park; aka The Grand Duchess of Blog-Doom

  31. 31

    There have been much better people than him!!!! But he is very hot :D

  32. 32

    He's Handsome!

  33. 33

    Does Danyl Johnson ring a bell???
    1000 times better than him…COME ON!!!
    Anyways…he's so hot…

  34. LxMxO says – reply to this


    he was beautiful. I wish that he had stayed in America. :)

  35. 35

    What do I think? I think he's probably hugging his toilet and heaving after reading that he's your new crush.

  36. 36

    I'm from the Uk and was watching this with my friends and sistr; we all got a huge crush on him straight away!

    Yummy lol and a great voice 2

  37. 37

    they were better singers then him. But he was good!
    My god he is so effing HOT though.

  38. 38

    he look like he needs a colon cleanse, and his voice aint even all that

  39. 39

    Danyl Johnson > Ethan Boroian

    by FAR.

  40. 40

    Ha ha ha ha ha

    hes N O T N O T FROM CHICAGO!!!

    i hate people from the burbs who fucking think they are from chicago sooo sad to bad-he can fucking stay over there-fuck people from the burbs who say they are from chicago go to hell

  41. 41

    Im sorry but everyones goin on about 'Danyl or Daryle Johnson' of whatever his name was. Im sorry but HE WASNT EVEN THAT GOOD.
    You people know nothing when it comes to music.
    He was a gud entertainer, his voice was good but not 'amazing' like u were all sayng. idiots.

  42. 42


  43. 43

    cute face!

  44. 44

    whoa he's YUMMY! hmmmm

  45. 45

    His singing is slightly above average. And he is cute but he comes across like he KNOWS how good-looking he is and is a total ass to most girls.

  46. 46

    and he's gay too!!! great!!..

  47. 47

    Ethan is so much more than his looks- he is my cousin and he has more heart and passion for music for as long as I can remember.. he's amazing and he's going to go far! he's without a doubt one to keep an eye on! support Ethan! x0×0 -Crystal

  48. 48

    yum yum

  49. 49

    Perez - search for him on YouTube - thee's a couple of amateur "open mike night" type videos of him on there. OMG guess what he plays guitar too!!! I Love him too baby!! dreamy voice is right - Thanks for this one, girlfriend!

  50. 50


  51. 51

    maan he's hot!

  52. 52


  53. 53

    Nyeh. I could take him or leave him, to be honest; this certainly isn't one of the best auditions of the season. He's sort of cute, but his voice isn't that great, and he should definitely have picked a different song.

  54. 54

    hes good but he isnt amazing… damn seksi though!

  55. 55

    I think I'm glad that he comes from here in Chicago!

  56. 56

    he sucks. there has to be a better singer than him on the show because he is mediocre at best.

  57. 57

    I thought he sounded like shit. And not that hot.

  58. 58

    I watched this eariler… He was good but not great, you're only calling him the "first breakout star" because he's American. There were better people later on in the show, and there have been better in previous weeks.

  59. 59


  60. dizzz says – reply to this


    def not first breakout star!!! jamie archer did a million times better with sex on fire and had the audience loving it!

  61. 61

    Wow. He's extraordinarily cute! (damn) He's not, however, extraordinarily talented- but Simon can work with that. Simon just about jizzes in his pants when someone comes in that he knows will make him money… like he needs any more money.

  62. J7 says – reply to this


    he looks sooo gay

  63. 63

    The best bit is how Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue both snapped to attention and sat up straight as he walked out on stage…

  64. J7 says – reply to this


    and yeah, he wasnt THAT good. so so voice so so looks; WAY better people out there. dont get the hype at all.

  65. 65

    I quite liked Jamie Archer as well - the bloke from Putney with the afro. He was fun and a good entertainer.

  66. a says – reply to this


    dude try closing you eyes and listening to it because he butchered that song.

  67. 67

    he was not the first breakout star of the show neither is he the best singer! he's cute but if he gets through to the live shows its because he's a novelty, cute face and american accent typical pop star.

  68. 68

    Yeah,he's quite hot,but his singing is just ok.. Not anything amazing,but just ok.. But yeah,quite hot..

  69. 69

    Olly Murs from Essex was also alot of fun - fun music and dancing!

  70. 70

    haha perez is crushing on a 19-year-old. such a tween

  71. missB says – reply to this


    he's so cute… i definitely like to look at him. but his performance wasnt, like, incredible or anything.

  72. 72

    rhis guy was not good at all people are so shallow who cares how he looks just another pretty white boy that will be over hyped

  73. 73

    he is NOT the 1st breakout star this year on the x factor. i mean he is AMAZING but there have been others before him on this series lol.
    you said it just coz he is american

  74. 74

    he's okay- nothing special……………………

  75. 75

    Gorgeous but NOT a breakout star

  76. 76

    Re: Lisaaa :) – Yes!! Danyl. He was amaaaaaaaaazing and one thousand times better looking than this yankee.

    P.S. Cheryl is so hot.

  77. 77

    Oh gosh, I wish the old version of Throbbing Gristle would come up on stage and destroy everything sonically.

  78. 78

    Re: Melissa82 – Dude, it's called AMERICAN Idol. They have Idols for other countries. If an Italian won AMERICAN idol….. Idiot.

  79. 79

    They are ok

  80. 80

    emmmmmmmmnnnn emmmmmn emmm emmm emmmmmmn!!!! good looking out Perez! he is delicious:):):) i wanna take a bite out of him– and soo cute he called his Mom! i'm in love:)
    – too bad for you he's straight hahhahah– and if he werent, then you need to change your hair color to something more blond or brown that orange would never attract him, trust me on this one Perez

  81. obama says – reply to this


    cute but no breakout star. Easy now.

  82. 82

    Perez, by focussing your hard-ons on hypercute young (straight) fellows you're probably ignoring the people you would be way better with.

  83. 83

    my god he is beautiful!

  84. 84

    Perez love, youtube Danyl Johnson… take my word, I wouldn't steer you wrong.

  85. JCPR says – reply to this


    what? i guess anybody can be a superstar in the UK! the dude can't sing and they thought it was a good audition? wow lol

  86. 86

    i fell in LOVE with him as soon as i saw him! and that accent is sooooo smexy! he's got the CUTEST smile!
    L.O.V.E him, and L.O.V.E Perez!

  87. 87

    Mario, for the love of god, will you please fix your video player? Seriously. It is one of the worst players out there. The sound and video almost never match. It's been happening for months. Kthx.

  88. 88

    Aww he's cute. Why are all guys named Ethan cute or hot?? Or both??

  89. 89

    UGH…… I already don't like him b/c he sang that fucking song. GOD I can't fucking stand Kings of Leon!!!! Fucking whiny piece of shit music

  90. 90

    he's very hot.
    the singing wasnt totally bad. but maybe thats just the sucky video quality.

  91. 91

    He abused the song..but his looks made up for it…………little mel gibson mmmmmmmmmm

  92. 92

    Only paramore does a good cover of this song

  93. wazup says – reply to this


    wow, he is a true hottie Perez. Very cute. Cuddly. Can I take him home with me?

  94. 94

    AWW he called his mom! SO CUTE:D

  95. 95

    okay, so now I'm definitely applying to Surrey x)

  96. 96


    After The X-Factor has broadcasted the premier of Cheryl Cole's new music video is going to be shown a few hours afterwards. Im so staying up late for this one.

    and i know you love Cheryl Cole so i thought i might tell you

  97. 97

    he's cute but not really that good.

  98. 98

    perez, hes nothing compared to danyl johnson. hes AMAZINGGG check him out

  99. 99

    He's so cute and hot! That's a rare combination you know…dayum I just wanna eat him up!

  100. 100

    He is cute, Im not into pretty young boys that much, but he is cute. the singing part was a bit boring, plain and lacking stage presence and personality..good for teens though …However you are wasting your time in crushing on him, how come you never get realistic and have a crush on guys who look like you, that you could actually date or at least get to f@ck one time or two?.
