Jedward In The Flesh: The X-Factor Stars Aren’t A Figment Of Your Imagination

March 2, 2010 by Clark 

Weird thing happened to me today.. I was heading home and came upon a gaggle of giggling teenaged girls who were surrounding what appeared to be a dual mound of pointy blonde hair. Sure enough, it was Jedward, saying hello to fans and generally being cheerful.

I hope they enjoy it while it lasts, as the second this peroxide version of Milli Vanilli is rumbled for the talentless puppets that they clearly are, their star will droop quicker than their quiffs in a storm.

For the time being they sum up an era- the era of the Reality TV musician, and will possibly be its final abberation before some genuinely talented musicians and performers grace our charts. 41vDg6Rx eL. SL160  Jedward In The Flesh: The X Factor Stars Arent A Figment Of Your Imagination

Still, while their current single, the Jedward cover/mash-up of ‘Under Pressure/Ice Ice Baby’ may be the aural equivalent of getting poked angrily in both eyes with hot pokers, they are fulfilling a need for young fans to have someone to scream incoherently about. That’s something every era needs, and while they’re not to everyone’s tastes and seen as a bit of a joke, they’re an essential part of our pop culture landscape.
