what is the girlfriend mag? I thought they want to interview them too?
oops I have forgotten a word it should mean "what is with the girlfriend mag? I thought they want to interview them too?"

their performance on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1yQG...TX-Touo4Srph5g

Would Luminous have had a chance against Euphoria on ESC? I always thought they would have prefered "What´s your number" because they have tweeted about that song the day before "Waterline" was announced+it is an easy to sing song(for them)+a good mood song

I don't think Luminous could have beaten Euphoria....that was the standout dance track of Eurovision 2012 and it mopped up all the votes. But I think the twins could easily have gone top 10 with Luminous.

In retrospect, Waterline was not a great choice....it sounded slightly dated and it was very poor publicity for the song that it had been twice rejected by Swedish Eurovision before.

Yep, they sounded great. Easily their best TV performance of Young Love so far! Any criticism is just down to dull dislikers.
I was scratching my head when I heard that they were being slated.....they gave a great vocal performance and hit every note.

Same here, I always thought as "What's your number" as their first Eurovision choice.

The official line-up is announced today at 7pm Ireland time, the posters that have been published so far are fake, so we have to wait a bit more.

@OfficialOxegen seems to be a bona fide page though?

Looks like it was fake info: http://entertainment.ie/music/news/O...-up/179224.htm

Although it does say "more to be announced".

I'm just catching up, I had classes all day. They sounded and looked amazing! I'm so proud whenever they do a great performance. It's like: in your face everyone who thought they couldn't sing

Could you guys help Croatian fans with something? We're trying to get them on the cover of Cool Magazine, so you'd just have to vote Jedward here: https://www.facebook.com/questions/183355848482627/

Thank you, we really need things like this to promote them here a little.

That was a nice daydream while it lasted.

I liked the Morning's interview - not completely convinced by the Happens in the Dark performance, they've done it better. Similarily, Young Love on Sunshine. John seemed a bit shy and gawky in that interview to me as well.

Aw - pretty good though overall.

I do sometimes wonder if John feels comfy in the white jeans.. I'm not complaining though () but I don't know, I wonder if sometimes think he may feel a teeny bit (just a bit mind) self-conscious in those trousers

Perhaps he didn't feel that way until he got aware of the whole "white jeans craziness".

The thing that should have made me question it is that there are very few pop acts invited to the festival, it's all rock, dance, hip hop etc.

I'm puzzled by that Twitter page though as they've been posting "news" about the festival for weeks.....they must have a lot of time on their hands

The Kyle and Jackie O interview was one of the most disappointing I can remember. The few minutes they were on air were divided into: a totally unnecessary and way too long phone call to Tara Reid (which was pretty difficult to understand for a non-native English speaker like me), and the twins asking questions to their aussie fans in the studio.
They actually weren't asked any questions by the hosts, they didn't say anything about their music or career and of course, any of the fan questions sent to the show during this week was asked. The hosts even didn't say goodbye to them, leaving all the fans confused thinking there was more to come. I don't know about you, but I'm pissed

According to the radio station, they didn't make any of the fan questions because: "sorry, we ran out of time. We had fans who were waiting outside all morning come in to meet the boys x"

Yes it's a shame, but after the magnificent Singapore trip, and the slick Canadian appearances, the Australian visit is a bit disappointing so far (not blaming the twins at all though).

I think we were all expecting a reception like Canada's and we're getting a bit of an UK vibe, a shame after such a long trip. Hope the twins are happy with this trip, after all, they're feeling the fan love and different websites/radios have showed interest in interviewing them

I agree with everything Flying Camel and Dechecho have said above. I'm so disappointed and fluffing Tara Reid really does the boys no favours at all. I know it wasn't her fault that she was invited on as the DJs obviously wanted the shock value but what a waste of time for them and us.

Oh and if John buys her a new fluffing telephone I'll ..... I'll ..... I'll....... don't know crush a grape or something.

Thinking of white jeans to calm down.

I missed the radio interview but that sounds totally the fault of the two hosts (and the producers). You can only be as good as the people interviewing you, and if the hosts make a mess of the interview and come at it from the wrong angle, there's not much you can do. The twins are normally fantastic radio interviewees so it would appear it's the show that screwed up.

I thought the two TV interviews were fine though. Their energy certainly came across on 'Happens' when they sang and danced with their fans and the Australian flag.

From what I know of the Kyle and Jackie O show, this is pretty much how they are with everyone. Kyle in particular is known as a "shock jock", doing and saying provocative things to titillate listeners. I'm not sure if this sort of radio style has an equivalent in the UK! Have a read of the lengthy "Controversy" section of Kyle's Wikipedia page and you'll see the really horrible stuff he's become known for: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyle_Sa...ds#Controversy

So the way the Jeds were handled on the show wasn't anything to do with the show not liking them, UK style. It's just how the Kyle and Jackie O show is.

To the Jeds credit, they never took the bait, never went along with the sexual humour. And they subtly gave Tara a boost so she didn't quite seem so... odd. They kept it really positive and were sweet to their fans - and that's what we love about them!

But yeah, generally Australia has been a good visit. The morning TV appearances and other radio shows have been great, and it sounds like tonight's show will be another fun one!

Can't believe I'm missing all this. Been in Aus constantly for 17 months, then leave on holiday a day before the twins arrive!

However, I'm in Singapore and on the few occasions I've listened to the radio, I've heard Luminous played twice

That's sucks Ertana, but twins keep on repeating they're coming back

Ok, trying to catch up.

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone for posting links here. I can't watch everything during the day, cause I've got classes, so it's great to find everything here

Second, I've just watched What's Your Number video. I was a little disappointed. I don't know why, I guess they spoiled me with all the fantastic vids, and this one is just not doing it for me. They don't seem very enthusiastic, there's no "story". It's good, but not great.
