Eurovision 2012: Ireland Waterline Jedward
Jedward impressed fans and TV viewers alike with their song Lipstick at last year’s contest. Their obvious enthusiasm and seemingly limitless energy made for a real spectacle. Lipstick being a musical earworm helped their cause too. A great combination which saw the country skidding in eighth.
Their song this year – Waterline – compares less favourably. The boys still deliver a punchy performance, but musically the song just doesn’t have the same infectious quality last year’s did. That’s a shame, because a Jedward number in the running order for the final on 26th May would be nice. I just can’t see it happening.
