Audition Song: Original rap, plus “Boyfriend” by Justin Bieber
Johnny Maxwell is just 16 years old, but he’s got the swagger of Justin Bieber and Drake combined. The California boy charmed judges with his original rap during his X Factor Season 2 audition, following it up with a bonus Bieber cover. Well played, kid. On Twitter during the show, judge Britney Spears called Johnny “adorable.”
Johnny is a junior at Castro High, according to this Patch profile, and has been writing original raps for some time. Johnny also looks to be quite the ladies’ man, according to his profile page. We can’t wait to see more of this kid!
