Meet Jedward, the Irish Identical Twins Who Are Making Quiffs Look Cool [VIDEO]
Seeing double? It’s the hot 20-year-old twins that form Jedward, an Irish pop sensation.
John and Edward Grimes, known for their blonde updo hairstyles, first appeared on the sixth season of “The X Factor” in 2009. Generating a phenomenon of “Jawesome” fans, they signed with manager Louis Walsh and have released two double-platinum records, Planet Jedward and Victory.
They released the single “Young Love” today and the same-titled album will drop in Ireland June 22, and is available to U.K. and American fans June 26. See the official music video — which the duo directed — in the player below:
Last week, Jedward made history by partaking in the 2012 Summer Olympics torch relay in Dublin. Thousands of people lined the Irish capital streets as the long distance runners charged with torches in hand.
Jedward felt the honour bestowed on them to carry the torch and reached out to fans, “Thank you, guys, so much for all coming out and being so Jepic and Jedicated to the Olympics.”
The Joyal country men and iconic pop singers rooted, “Go, Team Ireland!”
