John and Edward (Jedward) are Europe’s most famous twins after releasing their iconic first single Under Pressure – Ice Ice Baby. Since then they have released three number one albums, with multiple singles reaching the top of the charts, and have established themselves around the world after reaching the finals in Eurovision, twice. The twins have toured all over Europe and have even performed for President Barack Obama. The Jedward empire has had numerous ventures outside the music industry, including their own hit TV shows featured on the BBC and RTE. John and Edward have attracted wide spread media coverage since the start of their career, signing massive endorsement deals for a Jedward branded phone and commercials for Nintendo.

5 After Midnight
5 After Midnight are Kieran Alleyne, Nathan Lewis and Jordan Lee, a boy band from Leicester, Brighton, and East London who were chosen by Louis Walsh to go through to the live finals on ITV's The X Factor. The trio originally wowed the judges with their smooth RnB vocals and fancy footwork when covering Drake’s One Dance.

Former Bromley waiter turned heartbreaker, Matt proved he's got the X Factor. Mentored by Nicole Scherzinger and championed at Boot Camp by Calvin Harris, Matt went on to sail through to the X Factor finals, eventually winning the contest in 2016, beating Finnish songstress Saara Aalto. He promptly signed a deal with Simon Cowell’s Syco label. After a previous stab at pop stardom in non-successful boyband Far Too Far ended in 2014, Matt decided to quit his day job as a waiter and pursue a solo career. Proof that the advice of "don't give up your day job" can sometimes be proved wrong.
