It is reported in the Daily Mirror that Danyl has been given George Michael’s Praying for Time for Saturday night’s show. But during a coaching session with singing expert Yvie Burnett he erupted in fury and walked out.
Now Danyl is threatening to quit altogether unless Cowell agrees to change the song.
A shocked insider said: “He literally burst out the door and ran off down Battersea High Street. A few production staff chased after him to try to calm him down and make him come back but he was having none of it.
“They even sent a car to follow him and try to make him see sense and return but he refused. “He seems very angry and upset and is demanding a different song. It’ll be interesting to see if Simon backs down or makes him stick with it.”

Danyl Johnson is finding the pressure of the X Factor tough, according to a report in Now Magazine.
A Source claimed that Danyl's suffered from stress in the past, and he had a particualrly rough time in 2004 after his boy band NV split.
The source went on to suggest that he really struggles with rejection, so he's probably in the wrong industry.
Cracks began to show in the singer's confidence after he failed to impress the judges with his performance of Aerosmith's 'Don't Wanna Miss A Thing' during Rock Week.
The insider added: "The show's bosses are aware of his past and since all the fuss over Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent they're switched on about dealing with vulnerable contestants. They've been keeping an eye on Danyl.
"They called in psychologists this week and they're happy for him to continue now they've assessed him.
"All the contestants had psychological testing this year to ensure they could handle the pressure."
