Jedward: Ireland’s most famous twins

It’s been a long wait, but this morning Jedward finally released their official Eurovision preview video for “Waterline.” The footage comes almost exclusively from Ireland’s Eurosong 2012 competition, staged in February. It shows the twins arriving at the RTE studio in Dublin, getting dressed back stage, and performing on the big night in their glittery Michael Jackson-meets-an-Irish-tailor costumes. We also see the boys rehearsing before the finale in simple black t-shirts.

Jedward, who are representing Ireland for the second year in a row, received rave reviews at Ireland’s national final: they won both the jury and the public vote. That legitimacy has helped the boys climb the bookies’ odds table. Betfair currently has them listed as the fifth most likely to win the first semi-final. And Britain’s 15 major betting agencies also have them ranked fifth in the race to win the Eurovision grand finale.

Despite the hype, Eurovision hasn’t been on the boys’ minds in recent days. On March 9 they attended their beloved grandfather’s funeral, looking understandably downcast. We have no doubt he would have been proud of Jedward’s latest video.He was a very proud and devoted grandfather,” Father Phonsie Cullinan told the congregation. “It was obvious that he loved his grandchildren, maybe even more than his own children.”

What do you guys think of their video?

A great video, but somehow doesn’t fit the song style. 🙂

It’s a bit too hipsterish for a cheesy pop song.

Anyway, I love them to death.

UNIVERSAL (their music label) said that this is the official ESC video but that John&Edward will make probably next month an other official video for Waterline so that this is not the final Waterline video

I love it, it’s not flashy, gimmicky or overly expensive, but it gives a real taste of how seriously they take this competition and how hard they work for it, Also it shows the absolute euphoria of John and Edward and their fans when they won the chance to compete again ..I can’t watch it without a huge smile on my face
