Some Peoplе Come In Your Life For A Reason: #Jedward’s John Grimes Releases Stunning Instagram Exclusive Cover Of Justin Bieber’s ‘Lifetime’

If you’ve listened to John Grimes’ acoustic covers over the years, you may have noticed that he’s covered Justin Bieber’s songs more than any other artist, with him appearing 3 times in the past year alone. We’re certainly not complaining; Justin’s songs fit well lyrically, and sonically they suit John’s vocals perfectly. So tonight, we were very pleased when John uploaded a new cover to the Jepicpics Instagram account, and it was another Bieber song – this time his new single, ‘Lifetime’, from his ‘Justice’ album.

Since then it’s been covered no fewer than 15 times, by artists such as Birdy, Boyce Avenue, Justin Bieber, Jonas Blue, Sam Smith, Passenger…the list is seemingly endless, with each the track their own flavour.

If you’ve only just caught up with Jedward recently because of their consistently on point political tweets, or if you’ve only just discovered them, here’s a reminder that they make damned fine music as well.
