Cowell himself tweeted supported for their upcoming appearance, although a recent snap of his dogs Squiddly and Diddly in London suggests he won’t be there with them.
While many of the BGT semi-finalists have been doing press in the UK, including salsa dancing grandma Paddy and electric violinist Lettice Rowbotham, this is the first act heading to the US this year to call for support.
Cowell himself said after BAM’s audition that he felt their re-mix of Twista and Faith Evans track Hope could be a hit. Perhaps this is the first step towards making that happen?
The head judge has also told viewers that this weekend they’ll see the funniest act of the series, even though it’s not actually meant to be that funny.
