Bars and Melody (also known as BAM) are a British singing/rapping duo
consisting of rapper Leondre Devries (“Bars”) and singer Charlie Lenehan (“Melody”).
During their audition, they were automatically sent into the semi-finals of the competition after the head judge,
Simon Cowell, pressed the “golden buzzer,” a new feature introduced in the eighth series.
They ultimately finished in third place in the series.
After the show, Bars and Melody signed a record deal with Syco Music.
Their debut single, “Hopeful“, was released on 25 July 2014 and peaked at number five on
the UK Singles Chart
