After only ONE single!

X Factor stars John and Edward Grimes have been dropped by Sony after their first single "Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby)" with Vanilla Ice bombed in the UK! A Sony insider reveals:

"We tried our best to make the lads credible recording artists but punters just weren't that bothered. They are great lads but haven't got the greatest voices, so they're something to see rather than listen to.

"Record companies are going through major upheaval so we have to be very careful what we throw our weight behind. I'm sure Jedward will be able to make a buck touring as a novelty act."

Manager Louis Walsh seems to agree as he's still "completely committed" to the twin brothers saying, "The boys have a sell-out tour in Ireland straight after The X Factor tour in April and I'm in talks with a major record label about a new deal for them."

Best of luck, but their fifteen minutes might be up!

    Re: Kazekage Brink – Haha! Everyone wishes, but it seems like she's staying strong.



  11. 11

    Pig Face, did you do their hair?



  12. 12

    Actually, they've already been signed up to Universal records. They're in it for the long run, people just need to get used to it ;D



  13. 13

    goddd, Perez. catch up?
    because everyone knows they have signed up with universal nowadays.
    sooo much better than sony..
    and it didnt bomb actually, like they are going to get a number one when helping haiti is out too. JED WE CAN!!



  14. 14

    First news I heard when I woke up this morning.. :(
    Edward is so cute :)



  15. 15

    What? Their song got to number fucking 2 in the UK! How the fuck is that considered a ”bomb”? ITS RIGHT NEXT TO NUMBER ONE!! Jeez. A single bombing would be it getting to like, number 60… Number 2 is a pretty awesome acheivment, and it got number 1 in Ireland.. Wtf wankface?



  16. 16

    Could their pants be any tighter?



  17. 17

    Adam Lambert will be dropped from his label if he doesn't get a good song.



  18. 18

    The single went to #2 on the UK charts and #1 in Ireland. Somebody is lying here.



  19. 19

    All that says, is that the Brits are smarter than the Irish. Happy St Paddy's Day!



  20. 20

    They would be a hit if they did video. But their voices are really bad so no one will ever buy an album.

    But they are one of the sexiest queer twins I have ever seen. Don't know if they are gay or not, but boy do they act like it.



  21. 21

    There was an interview with Louis Walsh and they are supposed to be picked up by Universal.



  22. 22

    "They're something to see rather than listen to."

    They're not even nice to look at! I want to puke.



  23. 23

    :((((((((((((( sad day…….. no seriously



  24. 24

    I LOVE their video for Under Pressure! Hmmm…



  25. 25

    They got to no.2 in the UK charts. And to no.1 in the Irish charts. Considering they were up against Gaga who was at no.30 with Telephone you have no right to say it 'bombed'. I dont like Jedward, but please before you write something check your facts.



  26. 26

    WTF Perez! Their single didn't bomb, it entered the UK charts at #2 and went to #1 in Ireland. Get you facts right,idiot.



  27. 27

    Re: Boing Boing Billy
    They're not gay.

    Re: KLyinn – HAHA no one cares about Twilight,nerd.



  29. 29

    Yet again another Irish thing filed under Anglophobia … well I suppose we don't want to admit to them being Irish anyway so the Brits can have them!

  30. ONIT says – reply to this

    Re: Soulsoulshock – The reality doesn't sound good if you want to get rid of an artist. ;) Makes much more sense for the unknowing out there this way.



  31. 31

    I liked it!Of course if it was Lady Gaga you would have peed your pants telling us to buy it.



  32. 32

    awww …
    they are cute kids …
    maybe now they can get out of the media spotlight and remain cute kids



  33. 33

    i hate jedward, but this report is so wrong. After an hour they were signed by universal, & there single got to number 2 in england and num 1 in ireland. Hardly a bomb perez, even though i kinda wish it was. Whos misinformed gossip are you stealing from now mario?



  34. 34

    It wasn't a bomb, number 1 for four weeks in ireland and number 2 in the uk,
    they beat gaga by the way ;)



  35. 35

    they didnt bomb, it was #2 in the uk and #1 in the roi but yeahtheir days were always gonna be numbered



  36. 36

    Common sense should have told SONY that if they "tried their best" with Jedward it would not be enough.
