Despite even auditions for The X Factor 2011 not having started yet, duo Jedward are already making plans for the later stages of the competition. The wacky twin act from 2009 said together they had asked Louis to help him out at judges' houses - and the Irish music mogul agreed!
“We want to be at the judges’ house with Louis. We want to sit either side of Louis like a devil and an angel," the pair told Star magazine today. “We asked him and he said yes, as long as Simon Cowell agrees. We could totally do it.”
The boys also offered their invaluable insight into Dannii Minogue's leaving from the show, saying: "It’s so weird because now Louis is the only original judge. But I think it’s cool because Dannii has a baby and you don’t want Ethan to have withdrawal symptoms from her and say, ‘OMG, my mum ditched me for ‘X Factor’.”
They continued: "X Factor this year is going to totally change. You guys are going to see a totally new format. It's going to be so much more involved this year. We're really excited, we can't wait. The contestants don't know that it's totally different, only we know."
Meanwhile the pair, who finished in the Top 10 in Eurovision two weeks ago, also gave their thoughts on the new American series. "Cheryl's got real hippy. We've seen pictures of her in America wearing bright colours," the twins said. "Everyone's saying people won't understand what she's saying but I think her accent brings the whole UK competition to America."
