WELL it’s the time of the year when all eyes focus on the key poll, when we are preoccupied with the thought of who will gain most votes, when we sit up late glued to the box to see who has won – yep it’s Eurovision time.
Jedward may have once claimed to be Under Pressure on X-Factor as they covered/massacred [delete according to whether you have no taste or prefer actual music] the Queen and David Bowie song, but now the real pressure mounts.
Will they be Ireland’s 21st Century Johnny Logan (for younger readers he was the last ‘proper’ Eurovision winner) or just a turkey novelty act.
We have high hopes for the bequiffed twins. They already have come close to winning X-Factor, have secured advertising deals and are about to get a 75-date European tour underway.
Should they succeed in winning Eurovision we reckon that Jedward should lead the new Government of the Republic of Ireland.
After all, with Northern Ireland politics only occasionally rising above the level of laughing stock, having a near neighbour who has a joke Government should put everything into perspective.
And Jedward, despite their lack of musical ability or talent, would at least bring out the popular vote – alas it would be votes from people who are either too young to vote, or people so stupid they shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
