Congratulations are in order for Britain’s Got Talent runners-up Jonathon and Charlotte.
The opera singing teens have gone and got themselves a nice little record deal with the big man himself – Simon Cowell.
Jonathon Antonine, 17, and Charlotte Jaconelli, 16 have been signed to Syco Music and are set to release their first album on 3 September.
The pair, who lost out to dancing pooch Pudsey and his owner Ashleigh on BGT, took the judges and the world by storm when they belted out The Prayer at their first audition.
At first Simon told Jonathon to ditch Charlotte, which he refused to do, but Simon soon admitted he was wrong.
“This show is designed to give people like Jonathan and Charlotte an opportunity. I think their debut album is going to be stunning,” Simon said.
What Jonathon and Charlotte have to say about it all
Jonathon admits he can’t quite believe it’s all happening.
“Appearing on the show has been a huge confidence boost and I’m still pinching myself that we are actually making our album. Thank you to everyone for making this happen for us,” he said
Charlotte added: “This is a dream come true for us. Never for a second did we think auditioning for Britain’s Got Talent would lead to a recording contract. We are so grateful to Simon and all our fans for helping us to get to this position.”
And by the looks of YouTube, there are A LOT of fans: their performances on the show racked up an impressive 22 million YouTube views globally.
