Jedward set for Eurovision final
The X Factor sensations Jedward are celebrating after advancing to the Eurovision final.
The pop twins, John and Edward Grimes, will take to the Azerbaijan stage on Saturday to perform their catchy track Waterline after wowing the crowds at the semis on Tuesday.
Representing Ireland for a second year, the duo will go up against hot favourites the Russian Grannies - Buranovskiye Babushki - who were one of the 10 acts who made it through.
Jedward have taken to Twitter.com to thank fans for their support, writing, "Team Jedward all around the world, you are the reason why we are in the Eurovision Final and we are doing it for you!
"We are incredibly honoured to be able to rock the world and we promise you wonderful and fantastical things to come! All around the world Jedward fans join together and it makes us happy that we created this huge network of cool people that just get it!
"Everything we have achieved started with a vision! Being in The Eurovision Final is something we are very passionate about!"
The brothers will be hoping to impress at their second Eurovision outing - they came eighth last year.

I love their twitter motivational speeches to the fans! crap, did they actually tweet the word Fantastical? Juliet, do you think we might have been lurked?
So happy they got through to the final - their energy is amazing. They'll definitely have my vote on Saturday!

Good luck Jedward! I think they are so entertaining and such nice young men, full of energy and positivity, just what the world needs...I'll be voting for the 1st ever in Eurovision this year and my votes go to Ireland and JEDWARD
It makes me sick that a talentless pair of numbskulls like them are raking it in while people with genuine talent can't get a break.
