Teenage singing act Bars and Melody had the Britain's Got Talent judges in tears and Simon Cowell reaching for the competition’s coveted golden buzzer which allows each judge the chance to send one act straight through to the live semifinals despite what the rest of the judging panel think when they performed a rap song about bullying.

The duo comprises best friends Charlie (15) from Bristol and Leondre (13) from Wales.

Leondre revealed he used to suffer at the hands of a bully when he was younger and that’s what inspired the lyrics of the song.

Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams said, "For two young kids like you to come out and sing about something that really affects you and do it in a style that's completely yours is a really rare thing.”

Cowell added, “You know what, I listened to every word. I think that record could be a hit. I really, really like you two.”
