The pair, who will perform ‘I’m Your Man’ by George Michael this weekend, were
home for the first time since reaching the finals of the UK talent show to
film a community feature.
‘X Factor’ judge Louis Walsh shot down rumours his protégés John and Edward
Grimes, known collectively as ‘Jedward’, were due to appear as Westlife
turned on the Christmas lights on Grafton Street, Dublin.
In an exclusive interview with the Irish Independent, the pop impresario said
offers were already flooding in for the twins who have captured attention
with their dubious singing talents, energetic dancing and sky-high blonde
“It could be TV. There’s people talking about them doing phone deals,
pantomimes, books, records, hair deals,” he said.
“I think if they were in America they would be multi, multi-millionaires.
Because they’re so clean cut, they’re so nice. They’re unique. Everything
about them,” he said.
‘Jedward’ began their day bright and early in Dublin’s Institute of Education
with their old classmates and teachers.
But by yesterday afternoon the rumour mill was running at full tilt and around
200 people were left disappointed outside the boys’ local supermarket in
Lucan, having anticipated their arrival.
There was another anti-climax in the nearby Lord Lucan pub, which has been
converted into a supporters’ club for the 18-year-olds, when a supposed
drop-in failed to materialise.
It is understood they spent most of the day with their family before departing
for London at around 7pm last night.
Darragh Tuite from Blanchardstown and Stephen Fitzpatrick from Lucan, both 18,
are friends with the boys and were looking forward to seeing them outside
Superquinn for the first time since ‘The X-Factor’ began.
Superquinn are baking ‘Jedward’ cakes on a weekly basis and handing them over
to customers in The Lord Lucan for the weekend show.
