During aspecial press meetingheld on December 30th at TVR's headquarters in Bucharest, Johnny Logan was interviewed by esctoday.com and was asked about Jedward and their intention to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest. The former Irish glory regarded the twins as 'embarrassing' and expressed his negative opinion about the organizers of the national selection in Ireland.

"I don’t want to give Jedward any credibility by talking about them. For me, I’m sure they are lovely boys. But, really, I found a pair of shoes in Munich that have wings on them, and I believe Jedward wear these. I wear them to embarrass my 18-year-old, you know?", said Johnny Logan when asked about his opinion about Jedward.
Jedward's reaction was published today by the Irish press. “I think that anyone who hates on people that are younger than them, they just want to be younger … If people start hating on you or start saying, ‘oh don’t do that,’ you know you’re doing something right”, said Edward Grimes.

The twins also revealed some details about their plans for this year's Eurovision Song Contest : We’re thinking about having a really cool outfit, and will come up with a brand new performance because it’s a bigger stage. It’s huge, it’s an arena so like it’s going to be a huge performance … We’re going to shock people. People will be like ‘Oh My God where did these guys come out of? The event is a really good opportunity for us to gain more fans.”
