MANILA -- They were the first-ever winners of "PINASikat," the hit "It's Showtime" talent contest way back in 2015. 

And now, the Spyros Bros, made up of Filipino siblings Marco Angelo and Marc Albert, are looking to steal the spotlight once again as they turn their attention to the 15th season of "America's Got Talent." 

The Spyros Bros are a diabolo slinging act, and they definitely showed in their latest audition plenty of the reasons why they were a hit with Pinoys a few years back, effortlessly and entertainingly manipulating the yo-yo like toy to the tune of a Fall Out Boys song. 

It was a combination of their fun theatrics and infectious eagerness that won over the judges, including Simon Cowell. 

Cowell's co-judge, comedian Howie Mandel, told them: "I love everything about you. I've never seen somebody more excited just to be here, and that makes us excited and feel like we’re at the best, biggest party on Earth. And you guys were incredibly entertaining."

The Spyros Bros introduced themselves in "AGT" as from New York City, though proudly Filipino. 

After hearing the praises from the judges, Marco was reduced to tears as he opened up about his past with bullying. 

He shared that he was bullied for his delayed speech disorder, and that it was one of the main reasons why it took so long for him to try and audition for "AGT" despite being a huge fan of the show. 

The Spyros Bros won the "PINASikat" contest of "It's Showtime" back in 2015.
