'X Factor' Johnny Robinson to cover The Darkness for Rock Week

Johnny Robinson will be performing a Darkness song on this week's X Factor.

The 45-year-old singer, who is mentored by Louis Walsh, will attempt to win over the rival judges with his rendition of 'I Believe In A Thing Called Love', reports The Sun.

Gary Barlow has been highly critical of Walsh and Robinson so far in the competition, accusing the Irish judge of turning Robinson into a "pantomime dame".

However, the Harrow act told Digital Spy at the weekend that he wasn't concerned about Barlow's criticism.

"I love Gary. But I just want to bring a bit of fun to Saturday nights," he said. "That's what Saturday night TV used to be about when I was a kid. TV shows like Dame Edna and Hinge and Bracket. I just want to give everyone a good time each week."

Robinson was originally going to perform Abba's 'Winner Takes It All' as part of Heroes week, but due to a last minute theme week change from production, he has been forced to switch songs.
