They added in another tweet that they had to remember their password, and it was thanks to @SeanKeyes, previously with @TwitterDublin but now with @TwitterUK. Additionally, from their @planetjedward account, they tweeted a note, giving thanks to fans and especially @WilliamShatner:
It’s that time of year again – #InternationalJedwardDay, the day where we celebrate all things Jedward. Nobody knows why this date was chosen specifically, but we do know it was started back in 2013, by Australian fan Bella. Since then it’s been celebrated every year…on November 26.
This year has been rather exciting, as we’ve also got new studio versions of Jedward music. So far John and Edward have released ‘Perfect Wonderland’, and ‘Karma’, while this Friday fans will be able to stream and download ‘Golden Years’, one which we’ve only heard the merest snippets of. Fans have promoted the singles and been streaming and downloading them as part of the #InternationalJedwardDay celebrations.
Today fans have been tweeting, and posting on Instagram, about what things they’re most grateful to John and Edward for. Check out the #InternationalJedwardDay tag to see what everyone has been saying, and why not add your own thoughts!
What are you most grateful for, with regard to John and Edward?
‘Perfect Wonderland’, the latest single from Jedward is out today. The track is the first release by the Irish singer songwriters, and comes ahead of their fourth album, set to come out early next year.
The upbeat track carries with it a message of hope and positivity, a mantra of affirmation and peace, with lyrics such as
close your eyes but don’t overthink
and never forget the possibilities
don’t overstress, let your mind release
and teleport yourself anywhere you want to be
Both John and Edward share vocal duties, taking a line or two each, and equally singing on backing vox.
‘Perfect Wonderland’ has been a firm fan favourite since the twins first introduced it in 2014. Another song fans have been looking forward to, ‘Karma’, comes out next Friday.
John Grimes, half of pop star twin duo, Jedward, has treated delighted fans to a beautiful acoustic cover of The Police classic ‘Every Breath You Take’.
John posted the video of himself performing the song live and unedited, on IGTV on the twins official Instagram page, @Jepicpics. John later replied personally to many fans, thanking them for their complimentary comments, as they bombarded the video with words of praise.
You can see and hear Johns acoustic version on Every Breath You Take, on @Jepicpics IGTV here.
It’s hard to believe but today marks nine whole years since John and Edward Grimes, twins from Dublin, walked onto the stage at X Factor in Glasgow. Looking every bit like the superstars they are, they asked the audience if they were ready to party. Nine years along, the party is very definitely still happening.
Nine years is a long time in entertainment but John and Edward, or as they’ve come to be known, Jedward, are in it for the long haul. With fans who’ve been with them right from the start, and many who’ve joined along the way, the twins from Dublin have shown that success is about staying power as much as anything else. There’s no denying their talent – John and Edward went out on their own back in 2013, and released their first self-written and independently produced single, ‘Free Spirit’, the following year. They’ve followed this up with a further 8 singles, and are currently in the final stages of production for their fourth album.
We’ve written in previous years about their appearances in the Sharknado franchise, as well as their reality TV performances, most recently the MTV programme, ‘Single AF’, which began its broadcast last autumn in 63 countries around the world. Jedward continue to be household names, and are set to appear in ‘Celebrity Coach Trip’, later this year on E4. Recording in Los Angeles has meant that John and Edward haven’t been in Europe much, but they’ve still performed in Edinburgh for St Patrick’s Day, back in March, and fans can see them on October 1, when they will be singing as part of Cardiff Freshers Week. Further details are available here.
Jedward have uploaded ‘Good Vibes’ on their SoundCloud account, with the excellent results suggesting that more music will be put on their account soon.
‘Good Vibes’, one of their self-written songs, was released on St Patrick’s Day, 2016, and has so far garnered nearly 1.3M views on YouTube, as well as many thousands of views on streaming media. This popularity continues on SoundCloud, with the track garnering over 531,000 streams within two days of uploading.
The twins documented the event on their Instagram story, including the presentation of the star and speeches from the group. They also chatted with Justin Timberlake’s Mom, Lynn Harless, had a wave and a smile from Justin’s wife, actress Jessica Biel, and a smile and a wink from JT himself. They also sang ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’ along with the rest of the fans.
John and Edward have made no secret of their admiration for *NSYNC, and been known to cover a song or two at gigs. They even made the music video for their own track ‘The Hope Song’ a tribute to Justin Timberlake’s music video for his hit ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’, from the film, ‘Trolls’.
Much loved pop star twins, Jedward, have treated their fans to an exclusive Valentines Day acoustic cover of the song ‘Superman’ by Five For Fighting, performed completely live and uncut by John.
Fans were delighted to wake up to an email containing a hand designed valentines message from John and Edward, along with a link to the cover, which they have uploaded to the exclusive, members only section of their official website, planetjedward.com
