JEDWARD DEPARTED DUBLIN Airport this morning bound for Baku as they launch their second attempt at winning the Eurovision song contest.

Though they will not compete in the semi-finals for another ten days, brothers John and Edward Grimes are heading for Azerbaijan or ‘EdzerbaiJohn’ as they have renamed it to get the preparation in early.

This morning, fans gathered to see them off at the airport’s Terminal 1 and there was the predictable Jedmania

Supporters were even reported to have been doing an impromptu flash dance and singing the twins’ song ‘Waterline’ which they hope will catapult them to glory in the song contest later this month.

Check out the video including suitably unimpressed Gardaí:
