Jedward shot to fame on The X Factor back in 2009, and were best known for their blonde quiffs, matching outfits and energetic personalities.
In recent months, the Irish twins have won praise on social media for using their social media platforms to speak out on a range of topical issues, including the Black Lives Matter movement and advocating for transgender rights.
Back in March, the singers were also praised for shaving off their iconic quiffs to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society, a charity close to their heart after they lost their mother to cancer in 2019.
It comes after Jedward admitted they’re “glad” people are seeing them in a “different light”.
