They're baaaack! Everyone's favorite blond identical Irish twins who came in sixth on "The X Factor U.K." four years ago have paid another memorable, chaotic visit to Yahoo's Southern California headquarters.

Who on earth could I be talking about? Why, Jedward, of course: John and Edward Grimes, the "double divas of Dublin" who stunned all onlookers (even Simon Cowell) when they appeared on "The X Factor U.K." Season 6, and continue to stun all doubters with the massive Jedwardian empire they've built since — which so far includes three albums, 17 music videos, several successful British television series of their own, a modeling contract, various endorsement deals, two appearances at Eurovision, and a third-place showing on Britain's "Celebrity Big Brother."

Will U.S. fame and fortune follow? Sure, if they keep dropping by Yahoo and doing Jepic, Jawsome, star-making interviews like their latest.

Watch John (spiky hair) and Edward (flat hair) talk about their new music, their recent trips to Ibiza and Australia, One Direction, Oasis, Captain America, Eurovision, Dannii Minogue, learning how to DJ, the upcoming season of the BBC's "Jedward's Big Adventure," and any other stream-of-consciousness topic that just happened to be on their golden-topped minds while Yahoo's camera was rolling. An interview with Jedward is always a big adventure, for sure!

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
