This is their new music video out today.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=RmhQqbt4gyU
3rd single from their 3rd album.

Interview where they get asked about bullying they've been on the receiving end of and John talks about writing songs.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GSGV...e_gdata_player

Much longer video where they discuss modelling, guitars, song writing, TaraReid, Michael Bublé and other things.
http://www.spin1038.com/blogs/1.74.3...d_-_10.10.2012

Music video they film, edited, directed etc entirely by themselves in two and a half days.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKmI3...e_gdata_player


It is possible for them ever to get passed this "novelty act" tag they aquired in the UK from being on a TV "talent show" for 7 weeks aged 17?

Can anyone?

I honestly think they could have a hit with this one, it just needs a bit of airplay.

I'm biased I love them.

This is a great dance track though with a brilliant video to accompany it. Its a shame that UK radio doesn't seem to want to play their music due in part to the image they carry over from the X Factor, but they have matured and developed musically.

It's interesting in those interview clips that you see a much different side to them - especially John, who's Jedward persona is very much toned down. You can see how sensitive, particularly when asked about the bullying, he is but also how enthusatic about the songwriting. It's also lovely to see John and Edward encouraging and supporting each other with their different interests/talents within Jedward.

I'm really hoping Luminous does well for them because they seem so excited and proud of it.

Being slightly biased also..I absolutely love the song and the video

The song has been my favourite from the Young Love album since the first time I heard it and I am extremely pleased the video does it justice..and more

Jedward have come of age

I saw them asked about the Louis's part in the "X Factor fix" in an interview yesterday. John's theory was that Louis was desparate for the toilet, and the producer was just asking him to hold on until the end of the show

The one banging the drum with the blindfold on at the end actually looks really fit

Like the song, it should go down well on the continent.

Perhaps crazy hair for panto and the children's tv shows they're doing - as they're meant to be wacky.

That song/video is practically an admission that they've been putting on a camp act for years, to get noticed.

I think it's actually a sign they have grown up, remember they where only 17 when they started, it's their 21st birthday in a few days

Having followed them for a while I have seen them. Both gradually maturing a lot over the last year or so, they still have their crazy moments, but in general, they are a lot calmer and more focused than they were at 17 ...but then aren't we all

They have always has a silly and a sensible side to them, like most people. Just they've been a bit guarded about their serious side but it's always been there.

Same lads they've always been.

Maybe it is possible for them to move on from it then.

Their Big Brother run was unforgivable though. I'll never forgive them that.

Really? isn't it strange, thats where I first saw them properly and fell in love with them, I thought they were adorable, and I've loved them ever since

And I know love is a very strong word, but these boys (Young men now) are so endearing once you get to know them you can't help but love them
