Jedward want to be “bigger than ABBA”

Irish duo Jedward are characteristically confident about their Eurovision Song Contest entry, saying that their win tonight will rocket them to heights of fame to rival ABBA.

Twins John and Edward Grimes are second favourites to win the competition tonight with their track 'Lipstick', only coming in behind France’s entry, tenor vocalist Amaury Vassili. Irish fans have even been seen in Dusseldorf this week sporting cardboard versions of the pair’s famous quiffs.

Megastars ABBA famously won the contest in 1974 with their song ‘Waterloo’. The Swedish foursome went on to become one of the most successful acts of all time.

Speaking to The Sun, John Grimes boasted: "We want to be bigger than Abba."

Edward added: "When Abba were on the contest it was all about the outfits, and we want to do the same. We can't wait to be really successful all around the world."
