Jedward became popular on the 2009 edition of the X Factor in Great Britain.  They finished in sixth place in the tv series and are managed by their mentor, Louis Walsh.  The identical twin brothers, John and Edward, have since gone on to huge celebrity success in music and tv.  They have had several hit singles and albums around the world and also appeared in Celebrity Big Brother in the UK.

The brothers of course took to the Eurovision stage in two consecutive years representing Ireland.  In 2011 they took Lipstick to 8th position in Düsseldorf and in 2012 they were back with Waterline in Baku and finished in 19th place.

The boys are currently recording the third season of their popular CBBC tv series, Jedward’s Big Adventure.  They visit various historical sites around the United Kingdom.
