Jedward Return From Baku To Some Fans. Jape For Eurovision Next Year.
OK, they didn't win. They didn't even come eighth like they did last year (they came 19th). They didn't quite "rock Edzerbaijohn" like many thought they would, but they still returned home last night with a grin on their collective face, and their customary hairstyle (which I reckon has magic powers; how else can you explain how they dropped 11 positions this year??). There were even some fans in eye-watering shorts (one of the downsides to the hot weather. That and the bang of urine from select streets in the city centre).
For those who didn't watch the 3-and-a-half-hour #eurovisionvoteforyourneighbour tack-a-thon that took place on Saturday night (for those of you also Tweeting, thanks for keeping me sane), Jedward lost out to Loreen, the "Swedish version of Kate Bush" if she were possessed by the spirit of a spinning wind chime against a backing track of Scooter. As the fellah put it, "Withering Shites".
In saying that, I have had 'EuuuuuphhooRRIAAAHH' in my head for the past two days, which is a tentatively welcomed change from Waterline's dodgy middle eight... and there it is back again. Super.
Assuming Jedward won't be representing us next year, who could follow in their footsteps? Just putting this out there, and I'm sure he'll appreciate it, but I reckon Jape is the only reasonable answer. He lives in Sweden and everything. It's like fate. I broached the subject with him on Twitter on Saturday and he seemed open to it.
