After a tense wait, the twins were finally announced as the last act through to Saturday's final.

The pair donned gold robot costumes, which are reported to have cost €3,500. Jedward’s stytlist revealed to the Irish Independent that: "They cost a lot of money because it’s a special waterproof fabric and covered in a lot of bling and we had to get exact doubles for the dress rehearsals".

The decision to wear their hair down reportedly comes after discussions with their hair stylist Louise Teasdale, who is in New York with boyband One Direction.

"The lads have made the decision to wear their hair down as they call the shots when it comes to styling," their tour manager Liam McKenna tells The Daily Star.
