Jedward have kept their fans entertained during the COVID-19 quarantine, which they had been spending in Los Angeles, with best friend, actress Tara Reid, during which time they were interviewed on ITV’s ‘ITV’s ‘Loose Women’. Now back in Dublin, John has uploaded an acoustic guitar cover of The Police classic, ‘Every Breath You Take’.
In yet another incredible acoustic guitar cover, John Grimes of Jedward has tackled a Harry Styles’ song, ‘Cherry’. The original, which was co-written by Styles and his frequent collaborator, Tyler Johnson, along with Jeff Bhasker, Kid Tycoon, and Sammy Witte, does not include the song title in the lyrics. In John’s version however, he has added a bridge which amends this.
Lockdown seems to be agreeing with Jedward, who are using the period to stimulate their creativity while they are in isolation in Los Angeles. For the second time this week, John has released a video of himself singing and playing guitar, and also for the second time, it’s a song by a former One Direction member – this time ‘Falling’, by Harry Styles, which was released earlier this year.
Billie Eilish debuted, ‘No Time To Die’, the new theme song for the latest James Bond film of the same name, at the BRIT Awards last week. Co-written by Billie and her brother Finneas, it also legendary composer Hans Zimmer’s first Bond theme. Now John Grimes of Jedward has released a gorgeous acoustic cover of the song, available on the JedwardTV YouTube channel.
We were contacted by Carolyn Miller the other day telling us about the cover she’d made with Mikel James. It’s a beautiful acoustic mashup of Taylor Swift’s song, ‘Wildest Dreams’, sung by Carolyn, and Justin Bieber’s ‘What Do You Mean’ (sung by Mikel), while standing on a New York street. The duo are accompanied by Alex Desalvo on guitar, and Justin Scheidling, on Cajon box drum.
