Jedward are representing Ireland in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest in Azerbaijan where the twins have been causing quite a stir on the streets of Baku.

As John and Edward Grimes arrive at the Crystal Hall in Baku for a dress rehearsal, the Jedheads are out in force to wish them well. Sinéad Crowley chats to some of the fans and also meets up with the twins themselves. 

Their energy levels remain, well, Jepic.

One half of the singing, dancing duo Edward describes what Eurovision means to them. 

It brings like lots of cultures together and I think Jedward's all about the culture of Ireland because we bring so much fun, we bring so much life.

John also comments on the heavy security that they have in Azerbaijan.

Mentor to the twins and former Eurovision Song Contest winner Linda Martin is optimistic about the boys' prospects for success in the competition. 

I don't think you can top what they do from their look to their attitude, their dress...
