Jedward Confirmed For Eurovision Double
Terrible twins win vote to represent their country for second year running...
Jedward are to represent Ireland in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, after beating four other acts in a vote on RTÉ's The Late Late Show Eurosong Special on Friday night.
The 20-year-old twins, who shot to fame on The X Factor, came eighth in the contest last year with Lipstick and have now become the first act ever to represent Ireland twice in a row.
They said: "It's crazy. Oh my God, we are so excited. We did it last year, we're going back and we have so many fans all across Europe. It's going to be, like, we are back, return of the Jedward.
"We'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted for the song tonight - we have the best fans in the world. We'd also like to thank our mentor Linda Martin for all her support and the song writers for writing such a Jepic song."
MTV broke the news that the dynamic duo would be having another pop at the Eurovision cherry last October.
Their new track is called Waterline (not to be confused with Abba's Eurovision classic Waterloo) and was written by Nick Jarl and Sharon Vaughan. The twins are being mentored by Linda Martin, who won 1992's Eurovision.
