BGT 2014: Bars and Melody send 'Hope' into Official Top 40

Bars and  Melody

Britain's Got Talent 2014 stars Bars and Melody have helped boost Hope into the Official Top 40 chart, it's been revealed.

Charlie, 15 from Bristol and Leondre, 13 from Wales make up BAM and wowed the BGT judges at the weekend with their own version of the Twista and Faith Evans track, which included an original rap about their past experiences of bullying.

They won a standing ovation from both the panel and audience, leading Simon Cowell pressing his golden buzzer to send the pair straight through to the live shows.

Simon told them "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."

The original song was first released in 2005 where it reached Number 25 in the charts here in the UK but could be set to out do that this week thanks to BAM.

According to Charts Update, the song has climbed back into the Top 40 and is currently at Number 36 in today's Official Midweek Chart.

The midweeks also show that there are no fewer than five tracks from Eurovision 2014 in the Top 40 already, including winner Conchita Wurst who has been linked to Celebrity Big Brother.
