Simon Cowell is already keen to sign Britain's Got Talent duo Bars and Melody.

Last night we saw Simon press his golden buzzer for the pair after they performed their own own take of Twista and Faith Evans’ Hope.

Charlie Lenehan, 15 from Bristol and Leondre Devries, 13 from Wales make up BAM and wowed the judging line up with their own version of the track, which included an original rap about their past experiences of bullying.

They won a standing ovation from both the panel and crowd, leading to Simon to press his golden buzzer, sending them straight through to the live shows.

Simon told the teenagers: “I’ve heard some monstrous songs today and I was literally losing the will to live. You know what, I listened to every word. Did this stuff happen in your life? I think that record could be a hit. I really, really like you two."

Now according to the Daily Star On Sunday newspaper, a record deal is sure to await, to the surprise of pretty much no one.

"Simon loved everything about Bars and Melody," a source claims. “Not only are they incredibly talented but he loved their personalities and the positive ­messages they portray through their music.

“On top of that he thinks they are unique. There’s a massive gap in the market for a pop act like them.

“He will be paying close attention to how they perform in the semi-finals but if viewers vote them through to the final there’s a huge chance they will be signed regardless of whether they win.”

Charlie of the group said yesterday that he and Leondre hope to help kids who are being bullied through their music.

“It’s so common now, we want our music to be ­positive about negative things. We want to help other people," he explained.

Britain's Got Talent continues next Saturday night on ITV.
