Simon Cowell is planning a World's Got Talent special series which will take place in India - and BGT's Paddy and Nico are rumoured to be one of the acts competing.
The entertainment mogul is said to be gathering together the best acts from around the globe for the Got Talent World Stage Live which will be hosted by Mumbai, according to the Daily Mirror.
Britain's entry hasn't been confirmed yet, but the rumours are that Paddy and Nico will be taking to the stage once again for the contest in December.
Other success stories expected to make an appearance are Darcy Oake, Aldo Nicolini and Eaz E Crew, as well as top Bollywood stars.
A source said: "India's Got Talent is a huge show and this global version of the show will be a spin-off that will pull in millions of viewers and attract attention from around the world.
"Simon is giving the show his full backing and thinks it will be great to get the best of the talent from around the world all on one show. It sounds unmissable."
Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan is expected to host the show, which will be broadcast on India's Colours TV Channel and could be aired in other countries, too.
The full list of acts taking part is apparently due to be announced in Mumbai today (August 1).
