Jedward: 'We got to meet Barack Obama in our Eurovision costumes!'

Posted 26 January, 2017, 16:00

The Irish duo Jedward performed and were part of the expert panel at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in November last year. An ideal time to catch up with them and talk about their Eurovision memories. How do they remember the contest in Dusseldorf in 2011, when they performed lipstick? A year after, John and Edward went to Azerbaijan to represent Ireland with the song Waterline. Afterwards they gave many concerts, did modelling and even met the former president of the United States of America: Barack Obama
