Before you all get carried away, there is something I should warn you about.
Now that Jedward are confirmed (again), Ireland are taking a massive gamble this year at Baku.
Nearly all Eurovision returning artists - just like Jedward - have suffered the Eurovision equivalent of "Second Season Syndrome". They all ended up doing WORSE, after their impressive Eurovision debut, regardless on whether they win the Eurovision Song Contest or not (A top 10 finish for Jedward's Eurovision debut is pretty impressive).
Since the introduction of the Eurovision Semi-Finals back in 2004, only ONE singer has managed to win on their second attempt and that is Russia's Dima Bilan in 2008, having finished 2nd on his debut in 2006.
If Jedward fails to reach the final this year, didn't say I warned you.
