Jedward mark milestone birthday with a return to X Factor stage

THE duo celebrate their 20th birthday this weekend -- with a return to where it all began.

They will perform their new single Wow Oh Wow for millions of viewers on Xtra Factor. The Dublin twins turn 20 on Sunday and have been invited back by X Factor bosses to take to the stage. "They're really excited about going back and meeting all the new contestants," said an insider.

"They spent their birthday there last year as well and they were bouncing around the studios with excitement.

"All their fans were outside their hotel with birthday cakes and presents for them so it will probably be the same thing this weekend."

Ahead of heading to London, Jedward will be mark their birthday on a stage in Cavan where they are set to play at the Mullagh Sports Ground. They will perform alongside boyband Keywest and former X Factor girl band Belle Amie. The pair have also been busy filming for their new RTE show OMG! Jedward's Dream Factory at Donnybrook earlier this week.

"They have already made 38 children's dreams in two days and they have more filming to do, with a live performance in the works.

"Then the lads have to prepare for their gig in Cavan on Sunday and are then flying straight out to Edinburgh to appear on a TV show as well as going to the X Factor. It's non-stop with these guys," the source said.

And if that wasn't enough, Jedward are set to fly to LA in two weeks to film a music video which will star their Celebrity Big Brother housemate Tara Reid.

The Dublin stars will get their first taste of US fame when they take part in a music video in Tinseltown.

The Lucan boys will head out for a 12-hour video shoot in Hollywood for their new single, which they performed on the Late Late Show two weeks ago. Tara has promised to give the lads a tour of Hollywood.

The actress, who is filming the latest instalment of American Pie, will play the lead in the music video.
