When the men of the group The Kingdom Tenors took the stages during their audition for Britain’s Got Talent, women were swooning.
As were the judges.
“Hello! Boys!” one of them enthusiastically shouted at the brigade of handsome young men who walked on stage.
The Kingdom Tenors are a music group of 12 piece vocal harmony group of men from all over the U.K. who range in age from 21-years-old to 31-years-old.
“We are 12 guys that all have a passion for music. We, first of all, are all great mates that share the same vision to make incredible music,” their website states.
“We love to take songs that are from the modern era and give them our ‘Kingdom’ twist.”
Most of them have “normal” jobs like a mechanic and teacher.
“The band is made up of people we’ve worked with over the years,” member Simon Schofield said, according to the Mirror.
“I’d wash cars to earn some money,” says Eoin Mallon, 23. “I don’t know where the music side has come from. I’m the short, loud, Irish one in the group.”
But when they’re not doing that they are singing together.
The ones who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent were:
- Eoin Mallon, 23
- Daniel Holley, 21
- Paul McDowell, 27
- Ashley Emerson, 28
- Simon Schofield, 31
- Sami Lamine, 28
- Drew Millar, 27
- James Harrison-Baker, 26
- Luke Striffler, 26
- Harry Neale, 24
- Jordan Todd, 22
- Adam Corrigan, 22
And the group has made quite the name for themselves.
Not only did their handsome looks wow the crowd on Britain’s Got Talent, but their beautiful harmonies also did as well.

The crowd went wild but was one person who wasn’t super keen on it.
And that was judge Simon Powell… shocker.
“Simon didn’t seem sold on us,” Emerson told the Coventry Telegraph.
“He questioned our use of the song [‘You Raise Me Up’] and he was probably right.”
The Kingdom Tenors ended up winning that round and becoming semifinalists in the competition.
They received a standing ovation for their performance of One Direction’s “Story Of My Life.”

“The Kingdom Tenors make some tremors. Simon wasn’t keen on their audition song choice, so for the semi-finals they’ve gone for One Direction’s Story Of My Life. These boys have certainly got big voices, but will the public get behind them?” the caption for a video of their performance reads.
“It seems to me that any of these guys could win this contest as a stand-alone singer. Together, they are amazing,” said one YouTube commenter.
“Probably my favorite rendition of this song,” said another.
“I really really love them so much.”
Unfortunately, they did not and the Kingdom Tenors were eliminated from the competition.
They were beaten by magician Jamie Raven and dance troupe U.D.I.
There Facebook and Twitter pages haven’t been updates in a few years so it’s not clear if they are still performing but it was entertaining while it lasted.
