I know that hair, I thought to myself as I passed London’s Monument on the way home from work.
Those ridiculously elongated, spiky locks, wacky costumes and irritating voices were an immediate giveaway.
And of course it only took me a second to recognise Jedward – the X-Factor twins whose ludicrous image and inability to hold a note have propelled them to (semi) fame.
I have nothing against them, I am only being mean, and credit where it’s due, they are fiercely determined, and have built up a pretty unique act for themselves.
So well done brothers Grimes.
But it has to be said, the act is based around being cringe-worthingly bad at everything they try.
They only made it through on the X-Factor because Simon Cowell was won over by their determination and self-belief – and let’s face it, that is really all it takes.
At one point during the sing off with another band, they barged their way to the front and took over, throwing the other (better) act into the shadows and grabbing the limelight.
It’s a tried and tested method, and to be fair they are still here while the others literally disappear.
Their clunky and fearless attempts to claw their way to the top have so far been doing just that – so all credit to them
They even managed to divert my course home, after spotting them I meandered over to have a bit of a snoop.
The infamous Irish twins, who are becoming known for their ear-bleedingly dire attempts to score gold at the Eurovision song contest, were with a film crew and a gaggle of young people.
I imagine they were filming a pop video or something like that, so after turning paparazzi and grabbing a couple of pics I continued on my way home.
I did think though, that hair!? It seems to be growing bigger and sharper by the day.
It used to be sort of pulled up into two slightly over-gelled upright quiffs, but yesterday the twins could have been contenders in a competition to out-shard the Shard.
But, as I said, good luck to them, and I look forward to finding out what they were up to in the city.
