JEDWARD : Lipstick
One thing’s for certain with little John and Edward Grimes (aka Jedward) – you’re either gonna love them or loathe them. They were polarising in the 2009 British edition of ‘The X Factor’, and although they finished sixth and had a hit single with their mash up of Vanilla Ice’s ‘Ice Ice Baby’ and David Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’, their subsequent releases haven’t really set the chart world on fire.
Brilliant for them then that they get the opportunity to represent Ireland at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest with a song that could so easily get stuck in your head for days.
‘Lipstick’, a bouncy electro-pop number with a desperately catchy, albeit repetitive chorus, is already a hit in their homeland – but will it be a hit with the rest of Europe? We reckon it might be in with a chance for the grand final. Strange, however, that they’ve chosen to film the clip in Paris.
