Jedward are back... Here's why they're actually national treasures

The Grimes twins have a new single on the way. Prepare yourselves.

BRACE YOURSELVES: JEDWARD are making a musical comeback.

The terrible twosome are releasing a new single, Free Spirit, in May, with an album due in the summer. The single cover art is really something to behold.

(Are Jedward wearing lipgloss in this? They’re definitely wearing lipgloss.)

Many would say this is not a cause for celebration, but we disagree. Jedward are one of our finest exports, and here’s why:

1. They are ALWAYS happy

Even when they’re peddling Shake’N'Vac.

Have you ever seen a Jedward looking sad? Maybe that’s something we can learn from.

2. Their hair is a scientific wonder

How does it DO that?

3. They’re the only people in Ireland who would dare to wear these shoes

5. They can jump really high

If that’s not talent, we don’t know what is.
