Andrea and Irene (age 31), twins originally from Lima, Peru who call themselves Double Dragon, performed “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls during the Auditions round on America’s Got Talent 2020 (Season 15).
The twins, whose day job is in customer service, said they came on the show because they think they are more than singers. They consider themselves as performers who like to make people happy.
Double Dragon’s energetic performance drew thunderous applause and a standing ovation from the audience. They got a new fan in AGT host Terry Crews, who was shown jumping backstage as they performed, and even gave the twins a flying kiss. He exclaimed, “That was perfect!”
The twins were shaking and crying as they said their thanks to the crowd after their performance.
America’s Got Talent judges gave Double Dragon 4 yes votes, advancing them to the next round of the competition.

The song was a number-one dance hit in the United States, and reached the top ten in various other countries worldwide. VH1 listed the song as one of the Greatest Songs of the 1980s and also as one of the Greatest Songs of the 2000s decade. “It’s Raining Men” received a nomination at the 26th Annual Grammy Awards (1983) for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.
Sofia Vergara thought the Double Dragon twins were amazing. “I love to see two Latina girls having fun on that stage. I mean it was fun. It was like full of energy.”
Simon Cowell said he loved their reaction as much as he loved their performance.
All of the judges gave their “Si” (Yes) votes for the Double Dragon twins.
America’s Got Talent (AGT) Season 15 premiered in the United States on May 26, 2020, on NBC. For this season, AGT judges are Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, returning Heidi Klum, and newcomer Sofia Vergara.
This season is most notable for its production being affected by the COVID-19 or coronavirus pandemic in 2020, which impacted audition sessions. The program initially moved to filming without an audience present at auditions, before ultimately suspending production. Auditions were later allowed to continue, but via online applications from those quarantined in their homes.
The production staff decided to push through with the broadcast as planned and premiere on May 26. Debate continues on how many episodes would be broadcast with the amount of material that had been recorded.
