That means a lot of rehearsal time will be spent on teaching Edward how to get drenched without screaming like he just don't care?
OMG this was so funny

Just imagine Rosemary..a Jedward weekend at Butlins! Everyone could book rooms and have a rather good party! Jedwardians take over Butlins

((((((Rosemary)))))
I've imagined this from the get go!

Is it possible that they are making some sort of personal appearance at Butlins (or doing some sort of endorsement), but not performing?

The first tweet saying there are 'no plans' in place was responding to a query about them 'performing' and the original tweet didn't suggest there was a concert or any sort of performance involved.

Anyway, like others have said, let's wait and see.

(Rosemary, sorry to hear you've tough stuff going on in RL at the moment - hope things look up soon *hugs* )
Thanks I think its probably making things feel much worse than they actually are at the moment

That could be rather fun though I'm a bit sad that I won't be able to go ..

Hopefully whatever happens will work out for the best for the twins

So you mean the rehearsals that take place in Baku? I think Flyingcamel was asking about the rehearsals taking place now.
Oh yes, so I see! Well, apparently the Jedward stage is not completed yet (it has been under construction for the last three weeks), so they're certainly not rehearsing on it at the moment. But it must be very close to being finished, as it will have to be shipped out to Baku before the twins, so I imagine they will get a few days rehearsal time on it, maybe some time next week.

This means btw we won't get to see it before they leave for Eurovision. They're definitely not going to reveal anything of their ESC staging or choreography before the rehearsals.

The Young Love video is now up to 412k views

Interestingly, because of the way it is filmed, a lot of the new viewers think "Jedward" is one guy on his own
The youtube views map is fascinating me. There are more people watching it in USA than Russia, which has surprised me and it's really popular in Alaska and India! The fact that people watching it don't even realise they're looking at twins shows they've tapped into a whole new audience! Maybe this is the start of the twins becoming a worldwide phenomenon!

And Young Love might just be the song to do it Disnae. It's quite obvious that the international audience likes this particular look and sound....perhaps most of their uptempo stuff woudn't get this reaction. If ever they are to have an international breakthrough single, it may well be with this one

Talking about Young Love, it's now the 2nd most watched JedwardTV vid ever 449644 views in 2 days. Bad Behaviour is still in the lead (not for much time I should add) with 501657 views.

They look even better in this one. I see they have explained that they are twins this time.

Well observed, no1clothes. It looks like they've seen all the comments on the 'Young Love' video where the posters assumed they were just one person.

Have they filmed this in their back garden? That fence looks familiar. . .

I like this. It's a cute song, and has a nice, fresh, summery vibe. Think 'Young Love' is my favourite so far, though; it's been difficult to dislodge it from my head the past couple of days.

This one sounds quite One Direction

Young Love is my fave of the three we've heard so far followed by What's Your Number and then 'Happens' but all three are good.

I must be the only one not getting the Young Love instant love. I really like What's your number, and this Happens in the dark is great, so positive. Young Love it's my current #3, it's the only one of the 3 that hasn't been stuck in my head since I first listened to it.

As boyband type ballads go, Young Love is a very nice one and one you can hum after a couple of listens.

But the overall standard of the three songs sounds great and on a par with Victory (which was an excellent album in itself)

Agreed. It's quality stuff. I'd say the sound of this album is more 'mainstream' than Victory, though; it seems more in line with most of the material that's pitched at the teen market these days.

Just speculation, but I wonder is this album the twins' pitch to get picked up by Universal UK? They seem to have toned down what some might perceive as the 'novelty' factor a lot in the promo ( and also in the sound, which is much less europop than Victory, and seems closer to UK music tastes).

Young Love album (so far) has more commercial value which may make some people take a look at Victory.

Seems like a pitch to me. Much more commercial. Flat hair and less novelty clothing. So far. These have just been tasters.

It's interesting that they've gone with some new songwriters on this album Silverhand. Apparently Nick Jarl (the Waterline guy) has written a few tracks, so it would appear they've very deliberately gone for a new and more mature sound (though What's Your Number sounds very much like a Priddy / Larsson/ Jensen production).

The awkward moment when you remember that the twins will be performing these songs in Westlife's farewell tour and you wonder if they're trying to appeal that kind of audience

Here's hoping that they might even perform on BGT! I doubt it, but it would be great it they were

Just as long as they don't sit on two of the dreaded stools for Young Love and then stand up for the key change
