“Jedward will now represent Ireland…” – Redux

The RTÉ selected panel, and those members of the Irish public who voted, have, once again, decided that Jedward will represent Ireland RTÉ in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest – to be held in Baku in May.  And Louis didn’t even need to fix the voting this year.  [Allegedly! – Ed]  Indeed.

Whether RTÉ are any more willing to host next year’s final than they were this one is another matter.  [At least it’s not another turkey! – Ed]  You might well think that…  

Nevertheless, they did manage a creditable 8th last year.

The BBC have yet to decide on their entrant this year, or whether the public will have any say.

    I don’t want to Jedward bash but it’s very hard not to . The novelty has worn off and they have become somewhat of an embarrassment ( especially when one of them tries to look sexy – toe curling ) .

    Can you imagine in 2/3 years time what they’ll be like when they go through puberty ?

    yes – very rich

    At least the song they have this year is just forgettable, which is a step up from last year’s dire offering. There’s still more talent in Dustin’s beak than there is in the Terrible Twins put together! At least he’s intentionally funny…

    Let’s see how Europe likes being asked to vote on the same thing twice. I think we’ve made our point.

    The German entry won’t be expecting any votes from Greece this year .

    Nice one Henry94 😉 It would have made for a stronger point had Dustin been restuffed for a rare second entry but somehow I doubt if the staff of the ECB or the Merkecy’s will be watching 😉

    I really don’t get the jedward thing. To me they seem talentless.

  • lover not a fighter

    If the Europeans don’t start behaving themselves then we will keep sending Jedward until they do.

    Fair play to them. 2 utterly untalented individuals are raking in the the cash for doing more or less nothing.

    In a couple of years they can get a normal haircut and no-one will recognise them.
