The Johnson Brothers made their mark on the Britain’s Got Talent judges tonight, on the second episode of the new series.

Richard and Adam followed in the footsteps of Jonathan and Charlotte, who appeared on the show last year, and wowed the judges with their classical performance, but their nan seemed more excited about their achievement than they did.

Before performing for Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams the pair told presenters:

“We have been singing really for three years around the house, as you do. Anywhere and everywhere and really we always sing for our nan. She is a our biggest fan, she always supports us and jumps up and down when we sing.”

They added:

“We have come on BGT because we would love our dreams to come true. We’re quite excited really. Excited but nervous.”

Introducing their nan to the panel they said:

“We have brought along our number one fan.”

After the gushed for a while about Ant and Dec, the lads sang “The Impossible Dream (The Quest)” and it was a pretty impressive performance. The boys have lovely tones to their voices, which blend together very well and the audience erupted with applause as their song progressed.

Simon seemed more impressed with the standing ovation and crowd reaction, than he did with the singing but after the performance he praised the pair’s ‘genuine’ natures and the effort they put into the song. He said the brothers reminded him of last year’s ‘Olympic spirit.’

Amanda Holden gushed about the sibling’s ‘incredible’ voices and their ‘gorgeous harmonies.’

David loved that the act was ‘wholesome’ and ‘old fashioned’ and we’d say he rightly predicted that it will be a huge hit with women of many ages.

Alesha loved the ‘power’ behind their voices.

Unsurprisingly, The Johnson Brothers got four yeses and sailed through to the next round. Their nan was in tears backstage and we have to admit, we were close too!

Did you enjoy the boys’ performance tonight? Do you think they’re good enough for the live rounds? Leave your comments below….
