The X Factor 2018 started last night at ITV with the first round of new auditions.
The new panel of judges went to work together for the first time when Simon Cowell, Robbie Williams, Ayda Field and Louis Tomlinson started their search for the next singing sensation in the UK.
A hopeful that was noticed last night, however, was singer Danny Tetley.
The 37-year-old barkeeper from Yorkshire gave the judges and the audience a laugh when he walked on stage for the first time.
The funny man immediately aroused the interest of the jury members with his sparkling personality and story about his last audition for Simon on Pop Idol a few years ago.
The audience seemed worried about Danny's vocal skills and was afraid that he had exaggerated his talent.
However, when he started singing, the audience and the judges did not expect what happened next.
Danny gave a smashing performance of And I tell you that I do not come from the musical Dreamgirls.
WHAT TIME DOES THE X FACTOR START FROM TONIGHT?
The audience and the judges were overwhelmed by his version of the emotional ballad, which is known as tricky.
Backstage a shocked Dermot O & # 39; Leary said: "I did not expect Danny Tetley."
Danny received a standing ovation and four yes' s from the judges after he was in tears when he finished the song.
Robbie, Ayda and Louis even walked on stage to hug him.
"I loved you from the moment you came on stage," Robbie told him.
Who is Danny Tetley on The X Factor 2018?
Danny Tetley is from Bradford in Yorkshire.
The 37-year-old lives in Benidorm in Spain, where he works as a bartender.
Danny revealed that he had auditioned for Simon Cowell on Pop Idol 17 years ago, but that this did not work out.
"This is my World Cup Finals," he said before he started singing.
"I have waited 17 years to sing back for you, to show you, [after] I still have it all these years and I still have the same passion as before. "
WHO IS AYDA FIELD?
The audience was in a flood of tears when Simon apologized for not saying 17 years ago and went on stage to give him a hug.
Danny has previously appeared on ITV-series Benidorm, where Sherrie Hewson & # 39; s character Joyce Temple mocked him because he had a cleft lip.
Ofcom received a lot of complaints about the joke at that time.
An ITV spokesperson said at the time: "Danny is a very talented artist and very popular on the circuit, and we were delighted to welcome him."
After giving one of the most notable performances of the night, Danny is ready for the next round and is expected to perform well in the competition this year.
