The Mayor met Duane Lamonte, 24, who has choreographed a dance routine for one of the charities who will benefit from fundraising. On Saturday, up to 700 bars, clubs and pubs in London will ask their customers to donate a pound to London For London. Lamonte made the final 24 contestants in the X Factor at the weekend and flew to Morocco with the five other solo male hopefuls for his final audition in front of mentor Cheryl Cole. But he took time out to choreograph dance troupe Spirit, eight young dancers from the Kids Company, one of three charities that will benefit from London For London. Spirit performed for Mr Johnson outside City hall. Lamonte said: The charity saw me on The X Factor and approached me for the London For London campaign. Its a brilliant idea. Its also great that Boris is involved and Saturday will be a great night. The campaign, backed by the Lite, hopes to raise 1million for childrens charities Kids Company, Volunteer Police Cadets and 95.8 Capital FMs help a London Child. After watching Spirit, Mr Johnson said he was blown away and said the campaign was an inspired idea. by georgina littlejohn Good person: Leah Questin BorisgetsabitofXtrabackingforclubnight Signing up: Boris Johnson backs the campaign Hopes: Duane Lamonte and the Mayor index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html44.html45.html46.html47.html48.html49.html50.html51.html52.html53.html54.html55.html
