Jedward win Ireland’s Favorite Celebrity Prize

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

On November 26, Jedward, the identically twin singers from Ireland, were honored with Ireland’s favorite celebrities prize at #RaboTweeties 2014, an award ceremony, held at Sugar Club Dublin.

They won the competition by beating off Rosanna Davison, Niall Horan of One Direction, and Amy Huberman. Boring Kearney brothers’ @boringkearney was labeled Ireland’s most loved parody account. The title Ireland’s favorite entertainment program to tweet to was retained by Rose of Tralee. The show beat off #LoveHate to become the favorite.

Earlier on November 20, Jedward switched on Blackburn’s Christmas lights. The Irish pop stars, who rose to prominence on X Factor, gave a smashing live performance prior to leading the countdown. Then they pressed the button for lightening up town centre. The twin singers were joined by president of Blackburn branch of Royal British Legion, Des Owen. The event took place at King William Street. The event turned the place into a colorful kaleidoscope. The festivities began earlier on November 20 when Goodnight April (Manchester band), Bolton singer Redd, and The Renegade Girls (Lancashire girl group) performed outside town hall.  The theme continued with the performances from boyband Exposure and Tiger Heart (Blackpool group) in the evening.

Scottish singer Emily Middlemas and Northern Irish singer Janet Devlin also featured in the event. The duo John Grimes and Edward Grimes, called Jedward, eventually started their performance 10 minutes later. However, the crowd didn’t lose their enthusiasm. Jedward performed popular numbers like Free Spirit, Lipstick, Luminous, and Ice, Ice, Baby. The pair appeared on the stage alongside guests including Alan Cottam (Mayor) and Kate Hollern (council leader). The trees, signs, and lampposts were lit up before 7.10 pm.

Irish twins Jedward are all set to go to Britain, but this time they are not going there to sing. Instead, dressed up in nines, John and Edward would work as tour guides as some of Britain’s well known destinations in the 2nd series of CBBC show called Jedward’s Big Adventure.

With the help of different guests such as Stacey Solomon, the Love Machine hostess, and Corrie’s Catherine Tyldesley, the singing duo must learn figures and facts regarding destinations before they are unleashed to unsuspecting sightseers.

It appears that the Irish singers’ well known cheesiness appeared to have reached new heights since they will go to Somerset’s Cheddar Gorge. John and Edward will also go to Scotland’s Orkney Islands, Cambridgeshire’s Imperial War Museum Duxford as well as Greenwich and Thames in the England capital London.

According to reports, before filming the series, Jedward stated that filming this show would be a great experience and they just could not wait to go to the coolest places in the United Kingdom. The duo will learn all the facts about each place and more importantly they are also excited to sport some of the craziest dresses. They added that Planet Jedward is all set to be tour guide and the show would be Jepic.

The series will begin this Monday from 4.30 pm.

Recently, the Irish pair joked that they are best friends with Simon Cowell, the creator of X Factor, and also stated that Simon has a picture of them on his wall.
