Jedward put final touches to Euro bid

THE boys are back in Eurovision town.

Jedward were in full flight as they put the final touches to their Eurosong entry ahead of tomorrow night's contest.

And the duo invited the Herald along to their private rehearsal so we can give you a sneak peek of what to expect.

It's loud, it's jumpy and, given their popularity, it's bound to be a hit.

But John and Edward have admitted that they needed a last-minute heroine to keep their plan for Euro success on course.



COOL

New backing vocalist Claire O'Malley is working 24/7 to get up to speed with their performance of Waterline.

The 24-year-old singer and dancer was drafted in last minute to stand behind the Lucan twins on the Late Late Show tomorrow night, after Melanie McCabe was forced to pull out to due illness.

Redhead beauty Claire said: "It's overwhelming -- I've never sung live on TV before. That is a little terrifying, but it's an amazing opportunity

"The dance moves I'm a little nervous about -- I'm doing them in my sleep this week."
