OKAY. THIS IS IT, YOU GUYS. I'M COMING OUT OF THE JEDWARD CLOSET.
If you're in the UK, you probably know what I'm talking about. And you're probably shaking your head in despair right about now. And I understand that, I do. I hated them at first. I could barely watch their performances due to secondhand embarrassment, and I was so full of RAGE when Lucie got sent home instead of them. (I really only wanted her to stay because she was so ridiculously pretty, but still.)
And then somewhere along the way (irritatingly, it was like the week before they were eliminated) I started to like them. I think I always knew, deep down, that the twin thing would get me eventually.
I'M SORRY, BUT THE UNIVERSE CANNOT PRESENT ME WITH A PAIR OF PRETTY IRISH TWINS WHO POSE FOR PICTURES LIKE THIS, AND EXPECT ME JUST TO IGNORE IT.
Seriously, what is this? Who poses twins like this unless they want to see them making out?
And what twins are totally okay with it and don't say to the sleazy photographer, "hey, you know, this is a little bit incestuous"? JOHN AND EDWARD GRIMES, THAT'S WHO. (Also, Harry and Luke Treadaway
, because making out on camera is pretty much a hobby for them.)
If you don't
know who I'm talking about, by the way, John and Edward are 18 year old twins from Ireland who entered The X Factor this year, despite being unable to sing or dance or...well, do much of anything that The X Factor requires. But somehow they managed to make it like, seven weeks or something. Because they were
entertaining, just not in the way they probably intended to be. Also, they're totally in love with each other, and don't really bother to hide it. The whole of the UK refers to them with a SHIP NAME. Which they approve of because (and I quote), "it's kind of cool, like Brangelina."( Stick with me here. )
SO IN CONCLUSION...I CLEARLY HAVE NO TASTE. And if you'd like to join me in this, I recommend checking out Fuck Yeah Jedward
