Jedward AKA brothers John and Edward Grimes are an Irish singing pop duo who became a huge hit after appearing on the UK’s X-Factor in 2009.

Known for their distinctive blonde quiffs and unique performances, the identical twins have succeeded in being one of the most successful acts ever to have taken part in the talent competition. 


Following their success on the show Jedward collaborated with 90s hip-hop star Vanilla Ice on their debut single Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby).  It was a No.1 hit in the Irish singles charts and No.2 hit in the UK singles charts on downloads alone. The twins then went on to release their debut album Planet Jedward in July 2010 which became the fastest selling record in Ireland in 2010. 


Their first solo tour was extended from 28 to 75 dates following phenomenal demand from fans. The twins have also had their own reality show OMG Jedward for Irish television which proved to be a huge hit with viewers and offered an entertaining insight into the world that is Planet Jedward. 


Jedward will be performing Lipstick in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. The song has already gone to No.1 in the Irish charts following their success in the Irish Eurovision selection competition earlier this year. Lipstick was composed by Lars Jensen, Martin Larsson and Dan Priddy.
