Win or lose, we're ready to party!

IT'S hard to believe it's been a whole year since we were back, we've been to so many places since then but we feel really at home there. Everyone's been saying that we're the ones to beat and everyone else may as well get their coat and go home, but that's totally not true.

It's hard to believe it's been a whole year since we were back, we've been to so many places since then but we feel really at home there. Everyone's been saying that we're the ones to beat and everyone else may as well get their coat and go home, but that's totally not true.

We all have the same shot and the same chance of going through. We're going to go out there and give it our best performance, one that we can be really proud of but we need people to vote for us and not just assume that we're safe when we're not. Everyone has been asking what Waterline is about and it's basically about love and we think it's one of our best songs.

Let's face it -- Eurovision is bigger than the Grammys. It's bigger than any other show as it gets viewed by millions. We came in eighth place last year and if we go back to Eurovision again, it's going to be crazy as this year, everyone's going to know who we are and we got so many fans from going there last year.

We were like the team leaders in Germany, everyone was looking to us to liven things up. We had our own translator in the conferences but they had no clue what we were saying but everyone still got our vibe. We're going to have a pool party out in RTE tonight and give everyone waterguns and make it really fun. We have fans flying in from all over Europe just to support us, we have the best fans in the world. They have been having flash mobs all over Dublin for us and sending us loads of messages of support.



COOL

This past week has been the usual madness in Jedward-land. We were in LA for four days last week and then we came back to do a short tour around Ireland. It's been like our warm-up for tonight's show.

We did our last concert in Kilkenny on Saturday night and then just chilled out because we knew this week was going to be mad. We were straight into rehearsals on Monday as we want our routine to be really sharp, our best one yet and just blow every- one away. Disaster struck after Melanie McCabe got sick with this really bad throat and you could tell it was really sore and it was decided she couldn't do the vocals anymore.

We gave Clare O'Malley a call, she played Jill in our panto and she was totally awesome. She jumped into a cab and was at the Liffey Trust studios in 45 minutes and then everything was back to normal.

We had more rehearsals on Tuesday and on Wednesday we invited the Herald in to see us performing our routines and give a preview of what we're going to be like tonight and how cool it's going to be.

We could dance all day long, we love it so much. We got up early on Thursday morning to go out to Ireland AM and we met some really cool animals from the Dogs Trust.

We were really happy to do that as all the dogs were really friendly and we love animals. Then we went into Today FM and we ran all over the building saying hi to everyone before our interview with Ray D'Arcy.

We had to go straight out to RTE for our photocall and go through our rehearsal and soundcheck. It was the first time we got to meet all the other contestants.

They were all hiding out in their dressing rooms but we were running around trying to break any tension and just have a bit of fun with it.

There's big pressure to get things done and make sure everything's right.

We even flew in our hairdresser Louise Teasdale from London last night to do our quiffs.

She dyed and cut it to make sure it looks perfect and she's literally the only one we trust to do our hair properly.

Today it's been all madness again as we're out in RTE all day long and we're totally excited.

The adrenaline is starting and we're super excited. We're flying out to London tomorrow and we're going to start filming for our new show Jedward's Weird Wild World.

It's kind of similar to You've Been Framed, with all these cool clips from YouTube, so we're going to be doing that for Channel 5.

But before that, we've got to get through to the Eurovision so we're just hoping everyone will be true to us and give us their number one vote.

Jedward will appear on Eurosong 2012 on The Late Late Show tonight on RTE One, 9.35pm
