Jedward rocked St Andrews last week as they performed to a packed house as part of the university’s Freshers Week activities.

There was something for everyone, with the Dublin Duo singing songs from all three of their albums, plus some of their more recent singles. With fans in the audience having travelled great distances to see the twins perform, it was certainly a night to remember for all.

John and Edward hit the stage at about midnight, and kept the audience in their collective palms for about an hour. Songs such as ‘Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby)’, which reached Number 2 in the UK, and their Eurovision hits, ‘Lipstick’ and ‘Waterline’, all went down very well on the night, as did as their dance classic, ‘Luminous’. The Freshers were less familiar with the twins’ newer songs, but were no less enthusiastic about them, and heartily belted out the choruses of ‘Ferocious’ and ‘Oh Hell No’, the title track for ‘Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No’.

Jedward were supported by flautist Azeem, who had become quite the hit across UK universities earlier this year when the live stream of Final Year Flute Recital went viral. Accompanied by dubstep DJ Underbelly, Californian Azeem is touring the UK, with St Andrews his first performance. He wasn’t to everyone’s taste, but he certainly had some fans in the audience.

St Andrews University is of course famous as the location where the now Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met and fell in love. St Andrews itself is famous for being the home of golf, with the world’s oldest golf course located in the Scottish town.

Jedward are currently in Los Angeles, but return to the UK for the Massive Pop Party at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens, on October 3.
