X Factor favorite Danyl Johnson has been barred from appearing on Oprah and television in the America. The 27-year-old bisexual singer and YouTube sensation had been lined up to appear on Oprah Winfrey's show but ITV producers "refused to allow him on over fears it will give him an unfair advantage."
The Sun reports: "An insider said: 'Everyone has been watching his performance on YouTube and the Oprah producers caught wind of him. They thought it would be great to book him on to the show so lined up a slot for him. But X Factor producers and ITV didn't like the idea. They reckoned it would be unfair on the other acts as they are only supposed to be judged on what they do on the show."
More than 6 million people have watched Danyl's audition the X Factor—the British show that launched American Idol—and his rendition of "With a Little Help from My Friends". Simon Cowell called this "the best first audition I have ever heard."
