It’s almost like a homecoming whenever Jedward perform in Glasgow. Sure, they’re from Dublin, and still live there, and the vast majority of their work since the start of their career started has been in London; but Glasgow is where it all began, with them first stepping out onto the X Factor stage and John saying, “Glasgow! How you feeling tonight!”
You may have read a recent article that claims to give the lowdown on what Jedward are doing now. It didn’t take us long to realise that not only was it out of date, but there were also some glaring inaccuracies. We here at EP have always felt that Jedward deserve better, and so we’ve written our own.
Christmas is fast approaching and some would argue (me) that the perfect gift to find under the tree this year would be Jedward. The flaxen haired Irish singing duo might suggest their place is higher up the tree with their latest TikTok video, which sees the pair try their hand at the popular ring light trend.
Almost exactly a year ago we featured Jedward’s John Grimes’ cover of the Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber single, ‘Monster’. Now we bring you another take on the song, by The Veer Union. Unlike John’s rendition, which saw him sing accompanied only by his acoustic guitar, and indeed, the original song, which was a dance pop number – in the hands of The Veer Union, and featuring Late Night Savior & Stealing Eden, the song is shaken from its pop foundations and given a more punk, almost heavy metal treatment.
