  • X Factor judge compares the twins to Madonna

    Terrible twosome John and Edward are definitely in with a chance of winning this year’s X Factor, their mentor Louis Walsh insists.

    He said, ‘I think the twins can win it. They’re not the best singers or dancers but they’re brilliant entertainers. Who cares whether they’re good singers or not? Madonna and Kylie aren’t the best singers either but like the twins, they are great entertainers.’

    The pair, nicknamed Jedward by fans, are reportedly going to sing Ghostbusters on next week’s movie-themed show.

    They have been voted in week after week, despite sounding less than perfect during their performances.

    Even more surprisingly, celebrities are lining up to support the pair. Peaches Geldof wore a t-shirt with the slogan ‘Jed We Can’ when she visited the studios last week, while American stars the Backstreet Boys have given the twins VIP tickets to their concert.

    But Jedward must be doing something right, as this years X Factor is doing better than ever, with a record 15.8million viewers tuning in to see last Saturday’s show.

    With bottom three favourite Rachel Adedeji gone, there are just 8 acts left in the competition.
