Two talented siblings from Hawaii wow’ed the American Idol judges during their audition on Sunday (Feb. 21).

Hawaii natives Liahona, 16, and Ammon, 17,  auditioned as separate contestants, but with one original song called “Listen To My Heart.” The siblings explained that they wrote the song because they tend to fight a lot and say things they don’t mean.

Their performance concluded with a standing ovation from Luke Bryan and earned praise from each of the Idol judges.

“The beautiful part about this is it’s so fresh and I don’t even want to critique it hard, I like what you both did, You brought it to the table,” Lionel Richie said.

“I don’t even know what y’all were singing, I don’t even know what was going on, all I know is that I was loving the savantness of it. I mean, Liahona you have a voice like we could write a song, record it and it’s ready for the radio. Ammon, you have a little bit of growth vocally but y’all complimenting one another is absolute magic but I think the sky is the limit and i’m just freaking out,” Bryan gushed.

“Yeah, I think you guys are on the right path. You are talented beyond belief, incredible songwriters, like should be signed right now, that’s going to be your future, really really really really soon,” Perry said. Perry went on to compare Liahona to Lorde and Alessia Cara.

“You’re just special and you have it,” Bryan added before sending the siblings to Hollywood, earning a golden ticket.
