Trying to match up to Whitney Houston is no easy feat, but this guy absolutely nails it.
Contestants on reality TV shows have been harshly criticized over the years when trying cover a Whitney classic, but contestant Jonny Manuel had no problem pulling it off.
Simon can sometimes be the harshest of critics, but when you manage to make him smile like Jonny did, you know you’ve done good.
The video on Facebook racked up over 4 million views in the first hour and it’s easy to see why from the very second he opens his mouth.
Jonny, from Flint Michigan, first goes on to tell a story about how he was signed to a record label as a 14-year-old but it didn’t quite work out. I think it’s safe to say that after this performance he has a very, very good chance of making it big this time around.
