Labrinth's older brother MckNasty has auditioned for 'Britain's Got Talent', taking to the stage at London Palladium on Monday (21.01.13) to show off his drumming skills

The older brother of Labrinth has auditioned for 'Britain's Got Talent'.

The 'Beneath Your Beautiful' hitmaker's sibling MckNasty took to the stage at London Palladium on Monday (21.01.13) and showed the judges - Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon - his drumming skills.

MckNasty - who has been described as "one of the most talented musicians to break on to the UK scene" - received positive feedback from audience members who attended the auditions.

One onlooker tweeted: "Omdsssss. Labrinth's brother auditioned for bgt. Toooooo sick. Got me gassed. Wanna go raving now (sic)."

Another posting: "@Labrinthda1st your brother was so good at Britains got talent auditions today, he got the judges dancing! Can't wait too see more of him!! (sic)"

After previously being accused of creating a 'fix' on the show's auditions, ITV bosses may face the same complaints again if MckNasty makes the live rounds, as Labrinth - whose real name is Timothy McKenzie - is currently signed to music mogul Simon's record label Syco.

While MckNasty may have proved to be a success it seems other contestants failed to impress Simon yesterday, as comedian David revealed how strict he had been towards the acts.

He tweeted: "@SimonCowell has only said yes to one BGT contestant at the auditions in London today...! (sic)"

However, one act who did impress the judges enough to be put through into the competition so far are Dublin born Jack Duff and Cormac Connell, who sang together at the auditions in Cardiff, Wales, last week.

Sharing their excitement and gratitude, they tweeted the judges: "@davidwalliams Thank you so much for putting us through @ BGTwe are delighted.

"@SimonCowell Thank You very much for putting us through ( we were mobbed by the crowd leaving the show) haha we are excited for next stage (sic)"


Timothy McKenzie aka Labrinth is one of the few acts in recent years to have been signed by Simon Cowell without first appearing on a TV talent show.
