Yes, Jedward have survived another week, which now puts them in the top half of this year's X-Factor finalists. Heh. Last night's elimination show was rather fun, as one of Simon's acts finally went home thanks to Dannii Minogue getting her own back and sending the vote to deadlock between Jamie Afro and Lloyd. Normally I'd have been praying for Lloyd to go, but it was especially funny to see Jamie go after going up against such a duff performance (and aka_kelly: The reason I knew Louis was promising to chuck Jamie when he said before the sing-off that he'd keep the one who has potential isn't that I think Lloyd has it - simply that Louis' said many a time that Jamie has nowhere left to go so he was making it pretty clear he was going to stick the knife in.) It's just a shame Simon didn't lose one of the acts he actually gives two shits about, namely Danyl or Olly (more on him in a sec) but Jafro's a start.

Anyway, back to Jedward and their Saturday performance. I really, really wish I hadn't been spoiled about what they were doing, because if I'd been surprised by what they segue into after a couple of verses it would probably have been as funny as the talky bit in "Oops I Did It Again." It's still funny though. It's Queen week (which everyone figured was a strong week for Jafro - hah!) and Jedward are doing "Under Pressure." Yes, there's a strong start as they do a big entrance and Edward promptly trips over, but like I say, it gets better (and I'm not even counting the now-famous stage invasion by Calvin Harris with a pineapple on his head.)


Now Americans and other aliens may be wondering if the joke hasn't worn itself out by now, and technically yes, but to put it into context why such a shit-but-entertaining act is still on the telly every Saturday night, may I present Olly. He's never been in the bottom 2, and looks like a strong contender to win the whole thing. So next time someone asks me why Jedward are still considered funny, I'll reply by asking how, HOW Olly's dancing can in any way be considered acceptable.

Aw bless, I really like Olly.

Jedward are actually getting TOO GOOD now, it's not as funny anymore...

Aw bless, I really like Olly.

All right then, have a lovely portrait of him:

Jedward be fine if they just stood, they move about and get out of breath and one of them is a bit dopey ain't he? Always a second behind, bless his cotton socks :) hehe

But if Jedward stood completely still while singing badly, Lloyd would have a go at them for stealing his act.

And yes, Edward is noticeably that little bit worse than John (you can tell which is which because they always stand the same way round, like Ant & Dec.)

I watched this for the first time today...

Somewhere, Freddie Mercury is spinning in his grave - and he'll be spinning for Ollie not Jedward.

"How would you like to be remembered, Freddie?"
"Mainly, I'd like people to think of me and see a man with a big face doing Dad-at-a-wedding dancing."

Yeah, I guessed that's what he was planning too....to be honest he was a bit TOO blatant really it kind of spoilt the "shock horror" drama.

btw, I did wonder how you knew it was Edward who tripped....was he the one who nearly fell over when they jumped on stage the other week?

Probably (let's face it you'd have to give me more details than that, Jedward nearly falling over is hardly a one-off occurence.) But chances are it's Edward, he's always the marginally more shit of the two. I say Edward, I'm assuming they're actually able to follow the instruction that he should always stand on the left, which I admit may be expecting a bit too much of them.
