If Jedward’s manager Louis Walsh has his way, the world’s most famous pair of singing identical twins may be flying the Irish flag at Erovision 2012. “I want Jedward back at Eurovision next year, with the same song writers and another fantastic hit,” he told the Dublin Herald. “We saw the impact they made this year. They’re Kings of Eurovision already.”
And kings, of course, have plenty of riches. Walsh said that Schwarzkopf—supplier of fine quality hair products and a sponsor of Eurovision 2011—may offer the boys a lucrative hair deal. “They loved their quiffs, they thought they were so original and made them look really different,” Walsh said. “It’s the one thing everyone remembers about them and all these Germans were going around wearing the Jedheads. A deal could definitely be on the cards.”
For now, though, the boys are up to their old antics. When they arrived at Dublin’s airport on May 15, they jumped on a table and performed a few high kicks as they greeted their mob of fans. “We are so happy that we got to the Eurovision,” John said. “We wanted to bring fun and happiness to Dusseldorf and we wanted to cheer everyone up at home. Hopefully we succeeded.”
For his part, Edward confessed that the boys need to figure out where Azerbaijan is. “I have no idea, I’m serious. The most googled thing today is going to be, ‘where is Azerbaijan?'” He added that it’s probably the size of “Rathmines”—a suburb on the south side of Dublin—and that the government would need to “build an extension” ahead of next year’s contest.
