Saturday night's X Factor was surrounded by controversy after Jedward's performance was interrupted by a famous prankster holding a pineapple on his head.
Eagle-eyed viewers watched Saturday night’s X Factor in shock as Jedward’s performance was blighted by a man storming the stage with a pineapple on his head.
The pop star who invaded the stage was none other than Calvin Harris. Running on stage at the beginning of Jedward’s performance, Calvin, 25, stormed on holding a pineapple above his head – an attempt at a joke about Jedward’s infamous quiff.
The boys kept their cool and carried on with a cracking version of Queen/Vanilla Ice’s Under Pressure.
After their performance, Simon Cowell – who is now their biggest fan! Praised the pair for keeping calm and conducting themselves professionally, despite Calvin Harris trying to put them off.
Calvin, however, was pulled off stage by security and banned from the show – he was due to appear on the spin-off show, the X-tra Factor. Calvin apologised for the prank but said, ‘It’s not for my own publicity. I’m not a celebrity – I make music.
‘Dancing on stage with a pineapple on your head is a very stupid thing to do, but I also want to suggest that it’s a very stupid television programme.’
The dance music star, who’s had hits with I’m Not Alone and Dance Wiv Me, claimed that he is a fan of Jedward and added, ‘I was very surprised how easy it was to get up there. If anything good is going to come out of it, they should stick another man in front of the stage.’
Despite the controversy Jedward survived this week’s X Factor and are through to next week’s show.
