Jedward through to Eurovision final
Wednesday 23 May 2012
Jedward have made it through to their second Eurovision Song Contest final.
The Dublin-born twins were one of 10 acts to get through from last night's semi-final and will take to the stage in Baku, Azerbaijan, on Saturday to perform their pop track Waterline.
The former X Factor contestants, real names John and Edward Grimes, are representing Ireland for the second year in a row.
They are hoping to place higher than last year, when they came eighth with Lipstick.
The 20-year-old twins were dressed in silver armour-like costumes with their famous spiky hair worn flat.
Their performance ended with the energetic brothers jumping into a fountain in the middle of the stage.
They will go up against favourites the Russian Grannies - Buranovskiye Babushki - who also made it through last night.
The second semi-final will take place tomorrow night.
France, Italy, Germany, Spain, the UK and Azerbaijan have already qualified for the final.
Veteran crooner Engelbert Humperdinck will represent the UK with his song Love Will Set You Free.
