Jedward are hoping to represent Ireland in next year's Eurovision Song Contest
Jedward have set their sights on a place in next year's Eurovision Song Contest.
The eccentric twins - who rose to fame after appearing in the 2009 series of 'The X Factor' - are reportedly in talks to represent their home nation of Ireland in the annual singing competition.
John Grimes - joined in the duo by his brother Edward - said: "We're going to win it for Ireland. We're actually serious. We're in talks."
Meanwhile, the pair's manager and 'X Factor' judge Louis Walsh thinks Jedward have the necessary "attitude" to win Eurovision.
He added to the Daily Star newspaper: "I'm sure they could win - they have the attitude."
However, the troublesome twins will probably be giving their usual outlandish stage routines a miss, after Edward was rushed to hospital in July after mistiming a jump and falling awkwardly while performing at T4 On The Beach.
An onlooker said at the time: "Edward tried to carry on. They might have been absolutely awful but you can't fault Edward's commitment You wouldn't get that kind of courage from some so-called rock bands."
