Following their appearance on the series, the duo released a mash-up of Queen’s Under Pressure and Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby as their first single, which went to number one on the Irish Singles Chart and number two on the UK Singles Chart. Jedward had previously performed both songs during the X Factor live shows.
Jedward took to Twitter to accuse Simon and Sony Music UK of being responsible for the track and its music video disappearing from the internet – although sources have confirmed it was nothing to do with the music mogul or Sony.
In 2017, John told the Daily Star: ‘The judges need to stop bigging up people and giving them false hope. They need to say it how it is.
‘There have been so many winners who have come and gone. But it’s about success stories that give legitimacy to the show.
‘They need to get somewhere because if they’re not then what’s the point of the show? Also, the show is always all about the judges but it shouldn’t be.’
