Britain's Got Talent youngsters Bars and Melody look unrecognisable 7 years after show

Britain's Got Talent youngsters Bars and Melody look unrecognisable 7 years after show

Britain's Got Talent singers Bars and Melody look a world away from the baby-faced pair who shot to fame on the ITV talent show seven years ago.

Charlie Lenehan and Leondre Devries were just 15 and 13 when they wowed the judges with their anti-bullying song and made it all the way to the show's finale.

Now in their twenties and touring the world with their music, it's fair to say the boys have changed their style.

Charlie, known as Melody, is covered in tattoos, with inkings on his neck, arms and chest.

While Leondre has grown his hair, marking a stark difference to the spiky do he used to rock as a teen.

The pair are still the best of friends and have had great success musically.

They are currently on tour, performing their Stay Frosty act in Manchester and London later this week.

The duo made it to the final with their rendition of P Diddy's I'll Be Missing You, but lost out on the top spot to musical theatre group Collabro.

Simon's Cowell's Syco Music released the pair's debut album, called 143, the following year and signed them up on a £500,000 deal.

Bars and Melody toured Europe and Japan and appeared on America's Got Talent: The Champions.

They also made a welcome return to Britain's Got Talent in 2019 to sing their own song Here Comes The Sun.

And fans were shocked even then to see the pair looking so much older.

One tweeted: "Holey [sic] s***! Are these the same guys! #BarsAndMelody #BGTChampions."

The pair released their album Carpe Diem and its single Own Ways earlier this year.

They also announced a tour, telling fans: "Thank you for all the support and love throughout this pandemic, we hope you are all fit and well."

Recalling their rise to fame, Bars and Melody shared a video of their moment on BGT.

They wrote: "7 years today... Words cant explain the feelings towards this video. The moment that changed our life forever!

"Thank you for being by our side every step of the way. We have come to the end of the beginning. Our journeys just started. To another 70."

Britain's Got Talent could not go ahead this year because of the pandemic however it is hoped the 15th series will return to ITV next year.
