With no dates set yet for the re-opening of music venues in the U.K. due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, artists are having to reschedule concert dates and work around the health and safety regulations put in place by the U.K. government. Jedward are also affected by this, the Irish duo having to move their three show tour from August to February. It had originally been planned for May.
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 an exclusive interview for PageSix’s ‘We Hear’ podcast, Sharknado star Tara Reid spoke about life in quarantine in Los Angeles. She revealed that not only is she sharing her lockdown with her boyfriend, but also her best friends, John and Edward, aka Jedward, who have an apartment in the same building as her.
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.
With the Eurovision Song Contest called off this year because of the COVID-19 crisis, Eurovision has been doing their very best to keep fans happy by providing plenty of content. In fact, there’s been so much incredible content that it could be hoped this will continue to be on offer once things go back to normal.
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.
Alt-pop artists Jedward are exactly what the doctor has ordered when it comes to relief from the cabin-fever we’re all experiencing because of the current COVID-19 lockdown situation. Sharing last night on Twitter, the duo announced that they will be releasing the music video for their song, Extraordinary’ next month, to be followed by the clip for ‘Teenage Runaway’.
Fans of James Bond will have to wait a few months more until they can see the final outing of Daniel Craig as Agent 007.
To borrow the title of another James Bond film, it seems he will have to ‘Die Another Day’, as the global release of ‘No Time To Die’ has been pushed back until November this year because of fears that the current outbreak of Covid-19 will affect ticket sales around the world. Tweeting today, MGM, Universal, and producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced that the film would no longer be scheduled for its April theatrical release, but would rather hit cinemas in the U.K. on November 12, and worldwide on the 25th of that month.
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.
Lewis Capaldi has released the compelling new video for his latest single, ‘Before You Go’. Directed by Kyle Thrash, the clip portrays the moments of joy remembered by a group of friends, as they pay tribute to the life of a vibrant young woman – played by Sasha Lane, best known for her roles in ‘Honey’, and ‘Hellboy’ – whose suicide shocked them all.
John Grimes from Irish duo Jedward has long shared his acoustic guitar talents with the world, making his playing a part of their live show, as well as on their social media. Today he has uploaded onto the @planetjedward Twitter account a very special rendition of Lewis Capaldi’s song, ‘Before You Go’, which the Scottish released late last year.
Late last year Jedward began offering their critically acclaimed 4th album, ‘Voice Of A Rebel’ in CD format. The demand for CDs, which were initially available for a limited time only with delivery before Christmas, was so high that the Dublin twins were compelled to offer a second wave, with a January delivery.
Now they’ve added a bonus package, in the form of a signed CD, plus two Polaroids, shot exclusively for each order.
We’ve had The Essential Advent Calendar for a few years now and usually when it comes to December 25 we summarise the songs we’ve featured over advent. This year is going to be different. It’s the end of the decade. When we go back to reality after the Christmas/New Year period, and work out how to remember how to write the date, it’s no longer going to be the 20-teens, we’ll have entered the 2020s. And ultimately, it’s up to us to decide whether it’s going to be a time of prosperity and positivity or not: will we have a Roaring 2020s, or will we just go along with whatever is given to us, accepting it as our lot in life, no matter how miserable it makes us feel?
