Louis Walsh takes advice on his 'X Factor' contestants from Jedward.
The twin singing sensation - who finished in sixth place on the ITV1 talent show in 2009 - explained the Irish judge, who is also their manager, is the "best mentor" in the competition because he "tells it like it is".
John exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Louis is the best mentor. He just tells it like it is - not everyone can be a superstar.
"Whenever he needs help or advice, he calls us. He shouldn't listen to people saying nasty things about him. Louis is really cool, he just doesn't like to give people false hope. If John and I need to improve our singing, he just tells us."
The 'Lipstick' hitmakers are now backing Kitty Brucknell - who is mentored by Louis - and Little Mix to win this year's 'X Factor'.
Speaking at the launch of new video game 'Disney Universe', Edward said: "We really like Kitty. She has got a really cool image, a good look, a great voice and we love it when she dresses up as Britney.
"Rhythmix are really cool too, but they should have changed their name to something to do with Jedward - like the Jeddards or the Jeddites, that would have been really, really cool. They are totally different to any other girl group on the show before."
Jedward have taken part in a 'Suit Up Challenge' to mark the launch of new video game 'Disney Universe', available on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and PC download. For more information visit http://www.youtube.com/disneygamesuk
