Sixteen-year-old twins Shaheen and Manuell Subih and younger brother Andre (11) were showered in golden confetti last night after auditioning for Channel 9 show Australia’s Got Talent.

Judge Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson pressed the golden buzzer, securing the Subih Brothers a place in the semi-final.

With the twins on guitar and Andre singing, they chose Ave Maria for the audition.

“It shows the harmonies and shows my little brother’s range. We entered this competition because we wanted to show the world and Australia what we can do as brothers,” Shaheen said.

The twins, who are in Year 11 at Butler College, have been performing since they were five and Andre used to watch them, keen to join in as soon as he was old enough.

Shaheen said they enjoyed performing new music, including RnB, and Michael Jackson’s hits.

They hope to be as big as the Jackson 5 and have performed across Perth, attracting a big local fan base. They said Andre was the Harry Styles of the group because he had the cute factor.

The boys all attended Merriwa Primary School and principal Sue Waterhouse said staff were proud, particularly their music teacher Rose Prior.

Australia’s Got Talent will continue on Sundays at 7pm and Mondays at 7.30pm.
