X Factor: they’re identical twins and they sing – but they’re not Jedward

Fifteen-year-old identical twins Kyle and Josh had the judges seeing double when they walked out for the third round of auditions.

And they didn’t look like they were about to sing, either… They looked like they were auditioning for Ralph Macchio‘s role in The Karate Kid.

“Have you sung together in public before?” Simon Cowell asked the boys, who call themselves The Brooks.

“Yes, we started singing together in church,” they answered. “We’ve got a really close bond. If I need the toilet, he needs the toilet,” added Kyle (or was it Josh?).

“You’re so cute together!” Cheryl told them.

No one mentioned the other X Factor twins – Jedward, who finished sixth in the 2009 series. They’ve released three albums and represented Ireland twice in the Eurovision Song Contest since then and, up until 2013, were managed by Louis Walsh.

Is he looking for a new double act?
