X Factor's Johnny Robinson wants to represent the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest in Azerbaijan next year
X Factor's Johnny Robinson wants to represent the UK in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Azerbaijan.
The eccentric hopeful - who is being mentored by Louis Walsh - admitted he would love to follow in the footsteps of former contestant Andy Abraham who represented Britain in 2008 and twin singing sensation Jedward, who took part in the competition on behalf of their native Ireland last year.
Johnny said: "It would be brilliant."
After finishing eighth in the competition with their track 'Lipstick' this year, Jedward have revealed they will once again represent their country in 2012.
John said: "Guess what? We're gonna be doing Eurovision 2012. It's totally awesome. We did Eurovision 2011 and since we did that we're known all across Europe and all across the world.
"And next year it's gonna be even bigger and better because we're in all these teen magazines, and we go all over Europe.
"Our song and album and everything is doing really well in all these countries, and we're really excited about doing Eurovision 2012. Louis Walsh has all these songs lined up and we're just listening to them right now and picking a good song."
Edward added: "We're getting a better song than 'Lipstick' so the UK better watch out, because Jedward's coming to get them again next year!"
