Myles Antony Ryan and Connor Jerrade Ryan (born 19 October 1995) are a British pop and R&B duo from Manchester, England who are best known for appearing on the fourth series of ITV show Britains Got Talent as part of the boyband 'Connected'.
2010: Britain's Got Talent
The twins auditioned as 'Connected' on the fourth series of ITV reality show Britain's Got Talent in early 2010, along with Harry & Max Mondryk and Matthew Fitzgerald. For their audition, they sang I Want It That Way by the Backstreet Boys. While they received positive feedback from judges Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden, Simon Cowell criticized the band for looking 'out-dated' and claimed that they shouldn't have tried to impersonate the band. In retaliation to this, the band performed Ain't No Mountain High Enough to win him over. They received three yes votes from the judges. They then found out they went through to the semi finals.
In the second semi final, the band performed No Boundaries by Kris Allen. They received positive feedback from all three judges, and after landing in the judges vote, they were chosen by Cowell and Morgan to go through to the final.
In the final, the band performed What About Now by Westlife, originally by Daughtry. While they received positive comments from two of the judges, Cowell was yet again to criticize the song choice as he believed that the song didn't make them 'young enough'. They eventually finished outside the Top 3.
After the show, the band performed on the Britain's Got Talent Live Tour, across arenas all over the UK, performing the songs Never Forget by Take That, Everybody in Love by JLS, and Don't Stop Me Now by Queen as part of the finale.
Split from Connected
Connected performed their last gig together in Tamworth in front of 20,000 people on 18 July 2010.
At the end of July, Harry, Max and Matt announced on Facebook and their website that they had split with the twins and were forming a new band. Even though it's claimed that the trio have never contacted the twins after the split, they insist they are still friends. The twins gave their story to the Manchester Evening News, following an article the Mondryks and Fitzgerald had given to the paper a week before.
The twins vowed to continue performing as a duo.
Record deal and debut single
The twins were performing at a social club when a record label scout approached them and invited them to London to discuss their future. They eventually signed a record deal with Playdome Records.
The twins then spent most of early 2011 to help write and produce their debut album with top producer and co writer Marc Fargeot. The twins later announced on their Facebook and website that their debut single will be called "Number 1 Fan", though no release date has been set. The single will receive airplay over the next few weeks. The music video was filmed on 4 and 5 June. The photoshoot for the single took place on 11 June. No release date for the single has been set yet. On September 2nd 2011, Myles and Connor performed at the Blackpool Illuminations 2011.
On October 1st 2011, Myles and Connor announced that a change would be happening to the duo, however, nothing has yet been revealed.
