Britains Got Talent 2014 Finalists

Bars and Melody (also known as BAM) are a British singing/rapping duo consisting of rapper Leondre Devries ("Bars") and singer Charlie Lenehan ("Melody"). They took part in the eighth series of Britain's Got Talent in 2014.

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. They brought out a new song, "Shining Star", on 30 July 2014; this was an extra to their acoustic version of "Hopeful".

Bars and Melody released their debut studio album 143 on 21 August 2015. It debuted at number four in the UK. They refer to their fans as "Bambinos."

Preceding the album was their 'Summer 2015 Tour' which was a UK only tour to preview songs from 143. This was followed in November by the 143 Album Tour, their third tour overall but first following the release of their debut studio album. This tour was Bars and Melody's first world tour, featuring dates in Poland and the Netherlands.  The European tour continued into 2016 including dates in Barcelona, Lisbon and Berlin.

Their new EP Teen Spirit was out in August 2016 followed by a UK tour in Autumn 2016.
