Three boys have given Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj some strong competition with their incredible drag performance of “Bang Bang”.

The TNT Boys went on to win Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids, but the biggest surprise for the boys might have been when Jessie J liked their tweet.

They were overwhelmed with excitement when the “Price Tag” singer showed appreciation on Twitter for their incredible performance, saying they were “so happy and so so proud.”

“The queen, Ms. Jessie J liked our tweet. Thank you so much for your appreciation @JessieJ, it feels like the TNT Boys won another big trophy. We love you.”

The boys performed the hit song on the final night of competition Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids, where children sing and dress up, on Sunday.

They received a huge number of votes on the final performance of the Philippines television show for their version of “Bang Bang.”

They have previously transformed into other pop megastars, including ABBA, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men and Destiny’s Child.

They became an international sensation last year when they performed “Listen” by Beyonce on Little Big Shots, a variety television show for kids.

The boys’ idol, Jessie J, was forced to put rumours to rest this week that she would be performing at the VMAs after the awards show’s official account left a comment on her Instagram post.

While the comment was just a string of emojis, it whipped her fans into action, with many thinking it meant she would be performing at the VMAs.

Jessie J responded to fan excitement by saying that she was not performing, and that she hadn’t even been invited to the awards ceremony.

“I only presume these out of nowhere comments are to cause hype to get you guys to watch the show tonight. I’ll take that as a compliment,” she added.
