#9YearsOfJedward – We Celebrate John And Edward

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.

You can find Jedward online on their official website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and YouTube. Stream and download their music on SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and Google Play.

Jedward Join Crowds To Cheer *NSYNC On Hollywood Walk Of Fame


Los Angeles-based photographer Michael T Rozman captured this photo of the crowd. Among them were John and Edward Grimes (aka Jedward), long term *NSYNC fans, who are currently in LA recording music.

*NSYNC were awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame yesterday, and there at the front of the crowd, cheering them on, were singer songwriter twins Jedward, long time fans of the 90s boyband.

John and Edward, who are in LA working on new music, shared photos and videos of the event, on their official Instagram account.

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’.

Jedward The Stars Of New Christmas Ad For Peacocks


Fresh from their red carpet appearance at last weekend’s MTV EMAs in London, Jedward are starring in the new Christmas advertisement for UK fashion chain, Peacocks.

The ad, which debuted on Sunday night at 8pm, sees John and Edward hosting a Christmas party, for which they open their doors to fellow X Factor legends, Sam Bailey, Wagner, and Honey G.

Collaborating with Honey G in a fun rap written especially for the commercial, John and Edward are clearly the stars, with Sam Bailey expressing her admiration for them in a “behind the scenes” video, where she speaks of their professionalism and energy.

The ad finishes with the group flying off in a reindeer-led open sleigh, while Peacocks announce that all you need to do this Christmas is the wrapping. The entire ad is fun and festive, with a Christmassy feel-good factor that other ads could only hope for.

Starting tomorrow, 15 November, Peacocks will be giving shoppers the chance to win free clothes for a year (up to the value of £2400), simply by submitting a photo with one of their reindeers in store, or with the stars of the #xmasfactor TV campaign:

Full details are available on Peacocks’ website, where you will soon also be able to buy the same shirts as John, Edward, and the rest of the stars, are wearing in the ad.

Jedward Rock The EMAs

Jedward EMAs 1

Last Sunday saw Planet Jedward reach new levels of excitement as our favourite twins wowed the crowds on the red carpet at the MTV EMAs at London’s SSE Arena, Wembley.

Looking stunning in matching gold jackets, John and Edward found themselves ranked in many “best dressed” lists for the evening, including Cosmopolitan Magazine, Italy, who described them as, “Twin disco balls. They are irresistible. Full Stop”.

Several people commented on how John and Edward took time to speak to waiting fans and ensure everyone had a picture. They even took a selfie with Jackson Wang, who is a solo artist as well as member of KPop group, GOT7. After the show, Jedward headed to the star-studded after-party at Fountain Studios, where they met up with fellow MTV stars, Charlotte Crosby and Chloe Ferry, among others.
