For all you Yanks watching this who are unaware of the awesomeness that is Jedward, you are about to get schooled with a crash course in all things Jepic, via Reality Rocks' in-depth, out-of-control interview.

Jedward are John and Edward Grimes, the double divas of Dublin from "The X Factor U.K." Season 6. On that show, they famously pulled stunts like singing "Ghostbusters" while wearing proton packs, reciting the Titanic monologue while dressed in Britney-inspired red latex suits, and sporting coifs seemingly inspired by There's Something About Mary. All of this infuriated Simon Cowell, of course...but such antics won the wondertwins thousands of Jedicated fans across the globe.

Since then, Jedward have recorded a single with Vanilla Ice, represented Ireland twice in the Eurovision Song Contest, competed on Britain's "Celebrity Big Brother," hosted two children's TV shows, recorded three albums, completed the L.A. Marathon, carried the Olympic torch, danced onstage with Britney Spears, performed for President Obama...and they even beat out One Direction and the Wanted in Yahoo! omg U.K.'s Best Boy Band poll.

With a CV like that, surely Stateside superstardom can only be next. In their first major U.S. interview, Jedward map out their plan for world domination--and many, many other random subjects are covered, of course. In part 1, they discuss everything from future music to Les Miserables, from Katy Perry to Lady Gaga, from Bono to Adam Lambert. And of course, HAIR is discussed.

Part 2 delves deeper into "X Factor" talk, including the twins' opinions on Britney Spears's brief "X Factor USA" run, their tips for aspiring contestants, if they'd ever want to be "X Factor" judges or hosts, and their relationship with Simon. There's also plenty of chatter about dogs, dream duets, tattoos, and Taylor Swift...and Yahoo! Music's mascot, Pepe the Piñata, even makes a special cameo.

Thank you, Jedward, for the Jawsome interview!

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
