Fun on the double
They can't sing and they can't dance, so how do the twins known by the single name of Jedward get to be such a successful pop act? Worth an estimated £3.5m, they are living proof that today anyone really can become a star no matter the paucity of their talent. But it would be wrong to suggest that Jedward don't possess their own X Factor. They have an infectious lunacy and a talent for being likeable. People warm to them and young people recognise them as kindred spirits who make them feel happier. That's a talent that can't be manufactured or created by technology like so much modern music.
