Welcome to our Jedward Fandom Survey. I thought I would do this for fun and I would love if EVERYONE would fill this in. It’s completely anonymous and will take about 10 minutes to fill out if you don’t rush it.
It just asks you for your favourite things Jedward related and I don’t think I’ve I missed anything out.
At the end I will do one mahoosive post discecting your answers into something I hope to be really interesting to read.
If any of the options don’t look familiar to you, I have the videos here:
Planet Jedward Bonus Tracks
Planet Jedward when it was released had two bonus tracks which wasn’t on the CD. The fans from abroad may not know these so here they are…
Okay, I’ll start off by saying fair play to Jameela Jamil. She played Jedward TWICE for us on the Radio 1 Request Show. Young Love and Luminous were both played on her show. However, she’s no longer in charge and Dan and Phil have taken over.
BBC Radio 1, Every Sunday at 7pm
The show is on right after the Official Music Charts so we reckon a lot of people listen but Dan & Phil are doing it differently.
Phil told us: “We don’t want to be exiled by people for playing Jedward if someone requests it, but don’t worry we have found a quite creative way to decide if we play Jedward and Bieber songs.. ‘FAN BATTLES’. A superfan representing each artist compete live on air and only the winner gets their song played! It’s going to be pretty funny.”
Fan Battles lol… They don’t know Jedward fans well do they? We could take Bieber fans down. We can do this!!!
Now, I doubt that they would cater for Jedward fans every week. People would tire of it. They may even be full of it and deny us a listen of Jedward every time we try but it’s always worth a go.
They also want people to create videos for songs so they can show it on a LIVE stream so that people can watch the show as well as listen. The main website for the show says it can be anything you want but I don’t know what the copyright situation would be. If you did a video of Jedward clips for example, I don’t know if they would allow it. I can’t see why not but it’s worth emailing the BBC to find out.
I asked you to pick your fave song from Young Love. Unfortunately Survey Monkey, I found out, only lets you have 100 responses without paying so I understand 100 people is only a small amount of the fandom.
Anyway, here are the results with the TOP 3 in Blue. Of course the winner was LUMINOUS. It was very close though.
Never Better was in the leads at first, then it stayed 2nd place until What’s Your Number AND Cool Heroes beat it over last minute.
There was only one vote between #2 and #3 and only 3 votes between #1 and #2.
Waterline only got one vote and I’m surprised A Girl Like You didn’t do as well as I thought.
Would the results be different if I did the poll again using another Poll site so more people could vote?
Today, we finally learned how the votes for The Eurovision Song Contest were split. The EBU announced the points each country was given from the Jury and the Public televote - these were published on the official Eurovision website.
First, a recap of last year
When John and Edward performed “Lipstick” in Dusseldorf for the 2011 contest it was the Jury that preferred the duo to the public. The jury gave “Lipstick” 119 points where the Public gave it 101 points (okay, it wasn’t much difference).
So what about this year?
As we know, the twins and their song “Waterline” finished the contest in 19th place after receiving 46 points from the Public and Jury combined but it wasn’t known if the twins had gained more favour with the Public, or like last year… the Jury.
Turns out it was…. the public
Clicking here will lead you to the full list of scores but it’s a bit of a mess so I singled out Ireland’s votes here:
Basically, if you look at the table showing the Grand Final results… If, like 5 years ago it was only down to the public to decide then “Waterline” would have finished in 10th Place in the competition.
The Jury however, didn’t like it at all. If only their votes counted then the boys would have finished 25th out of 26 acts. Only the UK’s Englebert Humperdinck received less points from the jury.
Here’s some other interesting stuff the results revealed:
As expected, the Jury didn’t like Russia as much as the public did. However, they did get way more points from them than Ireland did. Personally, I think this proves just how bad Jury taste was.
Lithuania, Iceland and Norway were the only countries the Jury and Public agreed on.
Cyprus and Greece had two very similar songs with two very similar acts and performances. The Jury preferred Ivi Adamou where the public preferred Eleftheria.
The Jury and Public also agreed on the last placings in both Semi Finals where Slovakia and Austria finished.
France did apalling in the televote. No one voted for Anggun. Nil Points.
* I’d like to point out to you that in the list that I linked earlier, Ireland are down as being in 20th place. This is not true, they finished 19th. Iceland tied with them with 46pts but as Ireland received points from more countries, they placed higher. In that list they’ve put them in alphabetical order.
With YOUNG LOVE becoming available in the UNITED KINGDOM from midnight tonight (18th June), I thought it be best to make it clear what has to be done in order for Single sales to count. This is what I found…
To qualify for inclusion in the UK singles chart, a single must meet the following criteria:
It must be available on one or more eligible formats. Eligible formats are CD, DVD, vinyl, cassette, digital download, MiniDisc and flexi disc. [In this case, Digital Download]
All formats must contain the featured track or a version/remix of it. [No problem as only Young Love is available as the download]
Only three formats may be included in a single’s sales; sales in additional formats are disregarded when calculating a single’s chart position. The single must meet the minimum dealer price requirement (as of 2012, 40p for a digital audio track) [So basically, you can buy the single 3 times at most from each website]
The following is an excerpt from the PDF linked at the bottom:
Each format must have no more than four different tracks, although each song may appear in any number of different versions. [Again, no probs as only one track is available]
iTunes and 7digital allow gift buys. This means that you can buy the song for other people. If you buy the maximum three for yourself, all these will count towards the chart but the purchases you buy for other people you know will all count.
You can buy for you friend, Mum, Dad, Sister, Brother and even your teacher or boss lol. These will count towards the chart too.
We need this to sell well in the United Kingdom
Under Pressure made it to #2 on downloads alone and I’m sure we can do it again… Buy out everywhere.
