Jedward to represent Ireland for second time at Eurovision

Jedward are to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest for the second year in a row.

The 20-year-old twins, who recently announced they are to host a new Channel 5 clip show, beat four other acts to top the vote on last night’s The Late Late Show Eurosong Special.

The X-Factor duo impressed both the regional jury and the public with their track, 'Waterline,' and will now travel to the Azerbaijan capital of Baku for the first semi-final on May 22.  

In typically excitable style, the pair said of their win: "It's crazy, oh my God we're so excited. We're going back and we have so many fans all across Europe. It's going to be like, we are back, the return of Jedward."

The pair achieved Ireland’s highest position in over a decade when their track, ‘Lipstick,’ finished eighth at last year’s competition in Düsseldorf.
