Quotes About Jedward:

Speaking at Children's Hospices UK charity press conference, Cowell said it was impossible to predict the winner of this year's competition - but that he knew who he did not want to win.

''I'm just praying it's not John and Edward,'' said Simon Cowell. ''But there's a chance, according to reports this week, that they will." [Simon Cowell]

''To be fair, we put them in a competition where it's a public vote, and we have to live, unfortunately, with the public vote." [Simon Cowell]

''If they win, it will be a complete and utter disaster. I'd probably sulk for about six months, and I'd probably get on a very fast plane out of the country.'' [Simon Cowell]

''The fact is, it's a singing competition, and they can't sing,'' he added. ''I don't dislike them as people. I just don't think they are the act we were looking for.'' [Simon Cowell]

The Irish twins are '... not very good.' [Gordon Brown, Prime Minister]

"The boys aren't brats and they're certainly not arrogant. They are more down-to-earth than people think" [John Grimes, the boys' father, in interview with The Sun]

"They are typical teenagers, mad about girls and sport. [John Grimes, the boys' father, in interview with The Sun]

"They are the best of mates and that will help them on the show." [John Grimes, the boys' father]
