Irish twins Jedward have secured a place in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest, which takes place in Germany tomorrow (14.05.11)
Jedward have got through to the Eurovision Song Contest final.
Irish twins John and Edward Grimes - who shot to fame in the 2009 series of 'The X Factor' - have reached the final of the annual singing event, which will take place at the Düsseldorf Arena in Germany tomorrow (14.05.11), after wowing crowds with their 'Lipstick' hit in last night's semi-final.
John said: "We are chuffed to get through."
Meanwhile, if the 19-year-old twin singing sensation win the competition, they could be set to play for US president Barack Obama when he visits their native Ireland.
The pair - who were famously disliked on 'The X Factor' by former head judge Simon Cowell - are second favourites to win Eurovision, and are excited about the prospect of playing in front of the political leader.
John told The Sun newspaper: "If we win Eurovision and get to perform for Obama that would be the ultimate, he's even bigger than Simon Cowell!"
Jedward and Ireland are among 25 other countries vying for first place in the competition, with Blue representing the UK.
The British boyband - who will be singing 'I Can' - are third favourites to the Eurovision Song Contest, which will be aired on BBC One tomorrow (14.05.11) at 8pm.
