Britain's Got Talent 2014 finalists Bars and Melody put Hope into the Official Charts last week.

Charlie, 15 from Bristol and Leondre, 13 from Wales make up the duo - also known as BAM - and wowed the BGT judges on the Saturday before last with their own version of the Twista and Faith Evans track, which included an original rap by Leondre about experiences of bullying.

The perform got the young musical pairing a standing ovation from the judges and it saw Simon Cowell finally press his golden buzzer to send them straight through to the live shows next week.

Simon told them after their audition:"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 backin 2005 where it then reached Number 25 in the charts here in the UK.

It couldn't quite match that peak this week, but did sell over 6,800 copies to place at Number 39 in the Official Chart, Charts Update reports.
