Jedward want to date Russia's pensioner Eurovision contestants because "they're super hot"
Jedward want to date Russia's pensioner 'Eurovision' contestants.
The 20-year-old twins - John and Edward Grimes - will represent Ireland for the second year in a row in the song contest, which is being held in Azerbaijan, and joked they have fallen for Russia's Buranova Grannies, whose eldest member is 76.
John told the Daily Star newspaper: "I think they're super hot."
Edward added: "If we went on a date we could do knitting or something cool like that."
Meanwhile the eccentric brothers - who bought two pet rabbits in Baku and named them Euro and Vision in honour of the competition - have splashed out over £2,830 each on their gold robot costumes for their energetic performance of 'Waterline'.
The custom made outfits have been made to withstand water as the pair get soaked during their performance and they are also set to ditch their trademark quiffs for a flatter hairstyle.
Their stylist said: "They cost a lot of money because it's a special waterproof fabric and covered in a lot of bling and we had to get exact doubles for the dress rehearsals.
Tour manager Liam McKenna added: "The lads have made the decision to wear their hair down as they call the shots when it comes to styling."
Jedward placed eighth last year in the competition with 'Lipstick'.
