Fans of Britain’s Got Talent will know that in last night’s 2013 final, classical singers Richard and Adam Johnson ended up in third place after stoically continuing to perform when a former BGT contestant ran onstage and threw eggs at the judges…

But as mentioned, in true professional style, Richard and Adam carried on, their performance seemingly unmarred by the incident, and they aren’t letting the fact that they didn’t win bother them too much either as they plan for their futures!

And today, the Daily Mirror Sunday reports that the lads have revealed they’d love to form a BGT “supergroup” comprising themselves and former finalists Paul Potts, Susan Boyle and Jonathan & Charlotte.

Richard told the paper, “We’d love to sing with Susan Boyle, Paul Potts and Jonathan and Charlotte. We have all their albums.

“We’ve loved all of them so thought it was worth us entering BGT.

“We’d love to do a BGT classical supergroup. How awesome would that be? BGT Classical, I’ll have to have a word with Simon and drop in the idea.

“We’d love to record and release an album, do a theatre tour and perform around the country or maybe an arena.”

However, as to the immediate future, it seems the lads might have to resort to sandwich making again for a while.

Richard confessed, “We have £30 in the bank. We know what it is like to struggle without money.

“We want to take Nan and Grandad to Australia. They have family there but haven’t been able to go for a while.

“Nan’s our inspiration so we’d treat her to a show at Sydney Opera House. We’d do whatever we could for her.”

And Adam added, “We just want to keep singing and get away from sandwiches. The ultimate would be to perform at the Albert Hall with Nan in the front row.”

Here’s a reminder of the lads’ performance last night…

    @rose watson – Sorry I gave you the impression I’m a fan of Susan Boyle ’cause I’m not. I listened to a few songs from her and I found out that she is indeed very talented. Then, out of curiosity, I went to her official website and got the info I just posted above. You also got it wrong re Mr. Potts. I just stated a fact. He was dropped from Syco/Sony label so Simon Cowell has nothing to do with making him signing for a superband or whatever he wants. I find Mr. Potts very talented and even though it’s not my taste in music, doesn’t surprise me he is doing well. The only thing you almost got right is that Susan Boyle is more pop than Paul Potts. Though a classical singer is one who has the voice to perform without microphone and capable to sing an entire opera. I think your biggest two mistakes are to assume without information and second, being ridiculously defensive of Mr. Potts when no one is attacking him.

    Paul is still signed to Sony, I meant to type that not Syco, Simon still has links with it.
    Susan has not as yet done full concerts that I am aware, she usually does guest appearances often with other singers. Paul has done about 450 3hour long concerts on world stage.
    I agree with you about Richard and Adam wanting to sing with Paul and Jonathan. Paul and Jonathan have outstanding classical voices, although neither Jonathan and the brothers sing opera on BGT, but they have the classical voices. Do not think the brothers will make it too big, but I hope they have a good career.

    When has Boyle ever fallen out of a pub. Do tell!

    jonathan’s comment about her falling out of clubs was uncalled for. I’d dare him to post a link to anything that even suggests that she was falling down drunk, or even the tiniest bit tipsy.
    His intent is quite obvious.
