Fans flock to net Danyl.

DANYL is an internet sensation. Our chart, inset, shows the number of times the finalists' first live performances have been watched online on YouTube.

And Danyl romps away in the lead with well over a million hits. That's nearly twice as many as Essex single mum Stacey Solomon, 20, who comes in second with almost 700,000. Geordie Joe McElderry is third getting more than half a million.

But it's bad news for Irish twins John and Edward Grimes - dubbed "vile creatures" by Simon Cowell - who managed to scrape together just 35,000 hits, 20 times less than Danyl.

After the 18-yearold Dubliners' week-one performance Cheryl Cole said: "You can't sing - fact." And Simon Cowell called a performance a "musical disaster". The twins' online "fans" seem to agree.
