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.
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.
The organiser will be meeting everyone taking part at New Street Station at 12pm (Main station in Birmingham)
You will be taught the dance to Waterline on the day but in the meanwhile the best thing to do is learn it by watching the video from Dublin… Its pretty straight forward!
The Waterline Flashmob Dance:
After that the flashmob will take place then a march/parade will happen straight after that through town to promote the twins by handing out flyers ect…If you could bring your own flyers and make posters/banners to make it clear exactly what your promoting!
DRESS CODE: Everyone wear something blue, be it a top, shorts, jeans, dying your hair or facepaint! Anything will do as long as it’s blue. The more the merrier and remember you don’t need to be amazing at dancing afterall it’s a bit of fun not professional. The whole day will be recorded and photos taken!
On the 10th March 2012, Romania became Jedified… Joining Anggun and Hotel FM, John and Edward performed on the National Final “Selectia Nationala”.
Check out the video’s below to see them being interviewed and performing on the show.

Jedward sound check
The male Romanian presenter LOVED the twins as you can see when he’s introducing them. Let’s hope the rest of Romania did because Romania will also perform in the 1st Semi Final and can therefore vote too.
Earlier today the twins tweeted that they would be returning to Sweden and then heading, for the first time, to Denmark. What they’ll be doing there remains to be seen so watch this space.
Tomorrow night is the ROMANIAN national final “Selectia Nationala” and John & Edward are going to be performing, we assume, their 2012 entry “Waterline”
The Romanian final will be a long one so don’t make plans if you don’t want to miss the twins on Romanian TV. Fifteen contestants will be competing for the Romanian Ticket to Baku and whilst the votes are being counted, three special guests will be performing:
French Entrant Anggun will perform her entry “Echo (You & I).
Romania’s entry at last years Eurovision, Hotel FM will also perform.
and, of course Jedward will be Jedifying the country for the 1st time.
The show can be watched online using the following links:
If you plan on watching via Eurovision.tv then ensure that you have the Octoshape add-on downloaded ready to go.
TVR.ro will not only be streaming the main show, they will also have a stream showing the backstage area. The twins won’t be performing until after the 15 acts have performed which means they don’t necessarily need to be there for when the show starts. We don’t know when they’ll arrive so it would be up to you whether you wish to watch this or not.
The show starts at the following times (depending where you’re from)…
