  • John and Edwards Grimes, the X Factor twins with the gravity-defying hair, have been voted off the show after a dramatic sing-off with favourite, Olly Murs.

    The nation’s favourite indentical twins John and Edward Grimes, AKA Jedward, were voted off the X Factor last night.

    In a dramatic sing-off between them and show favourtie Olly Murs, 26, Jedward had to sing Boyzone’s No Matter What, but the judges and the public weren’t impressed with their out-of-tune rendition and voted for note-perfect Olly Murs, who sang an amazing version of Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight.

    The 18-year-old duo have become heart throbs to teenage girls, who love their high hair and fun and energetic performances.

    Despite the legions of fans Jedward couldn’t win over X Factor judge Simon Cowell, who has dubbed them, ‘Vile little creatures.’

    John & Edward Grimes - Celebrity News - Marie ClaireJedward looked upset by the decision last night but there was some good news. The cover of Michael Jackson’s You Are Not Alone, which the 12 X Factor contestants have recorded, has gone to number one in the singles chart.

    The charity record sold 193,000 copies last week, making it the second highest-selling single of the year so far.
