Jedward – twice Irish Eurovision representatives (2011 and 2012) – have found that they have fans and detractors in equal measures. Those who have not been their fans have always cited their lack of singing ability and placed their Eurovision success on their backing singers – something we have always refuted.

John and Edward have decided to strip back to the bare essentials – steady on Jedheads – and have uploaded an acoustic video of just John and Edward singing One Direction’s new song “Story Of My Life”. Furthermore John is playing the guitar.

They have certainly come a long way since X-Factor and I am sure that many will have witty comments to make about the guitar playing and singing, but we are coming into pantomime season so let the villains have their moment. For everyone else you have to ask yourself if One Direction would do a single take of the song while playing the music too? I think we all know the answer to that question.

With Jedward touring Australia and future TV plans in the UK – their version of “Story Of My Life” will certainly go some way to silencing all those doubters.

  1. Many modern pop artists would be reluctant to sing live with their vocals so exposed with a single guitar. The twins have always risen to the challenge of singing acapella live when challenged on TV or radio interviews. They sing just fine, I have genuinely always loved the warm tone in their voices.
