Irish twins Jedward through to Eurovision final

Friday May 13, 2011

The Irish twins impressed enough viewers of the second semi-final to become one of 10 acts to make it through to the final 25 at Eurovision.

John and Edward Grimes first shot to fame with energetic routines on The X Factor and their Eurovision performance was just as eye-catching.

The pair dressed like cartoon characters with big-shouldered red sparkly jackets and tight black trousers.

They added to the effect with synchronised robotic dance moves as they performed Lipstick.

The twins jumped up and down with excitement when Ireland was named as the fourth entry going through to the final.

Ireland is the contest's most successful country but Jedward have some stiff competition in the final, including the UK's entry Blue with the song I Can.
