Johnny was a contestant on X Factor 2011, he was voted off in week 5.

Johnny always sang as a child and loves doing karaoke and taking part in charity concerts. He started to take it seriously when he was 17-years-old and made some demo tapes and sent them off to record companies. Johnny took part in Stars In Their Eyes when he was 24, as Boy George, and having won his show, he got through to the grand final. His dream is to play concerts all over the world.

When he found out he was through to the Live Shows, he said: “Oh my God it feels like from the very first audition I haven’t woke up, it feels like I’m dreaming all of this. Someone pinch me and wake me up. I am very very very lucky.”
