Nik and Sam won round two by defying expectations. The identical twins from Dover aren’t simply a marketing gimmick. They both sing. They both write. They both play their instruments with skill that belies their age.
Why they’ll win: They’ve already been anointed. They’re signed to a development deal with Warner Bros. A move to one of the coasts, or at least Nashville seems imminent. Did I mention they’re 16-year-old identical twins?
