After Simon Cowell stopped Connor Johnson midsong, Connor came back with an amazing cover of “Latch” by Disclosure.. Connor is singer from Waikiki who sings acoustic pop music on the streets. He’s also a surfer! His mom, a military nurse, is in the audience. He has a very pretty tone and a lovely falsetto. Simon stops him: “That was a bit boring.” The audience boos. Connor performs another song. It’s also a ballad and not much different from the first, actually. The melody is a little more compelling, maybe. He reminds me a little of Francisco Martin. It’s that same heart-on-his sleeve thing..

Sofia liked the second song more. “Your voice is beautiful voice.” Heidi calls him “easy on the eyes.” Howie thinks he’ll have a successful career. Simon says he needs to go a bit out of his comfort zone if there is a next time. 4 yeses
