Pop twins Jedward – aka John and Edward Grimes – have revealed a plan to raise money for charity – by shaving off their famous quiffs. the 19-year-olds – who will represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest in May – admitted they would be happy to lose their locks if it were for a good cause. “I think we should do a massive campaign for charity. We’d raise like one or two million,” John said. “We could gather everyone up into Wembley and me and John could come out and it would be like death row or something and then we’d shave off all our hair,” added Edward. “I’ve shaved my hair before for charity so, like, it’s kinda crazy. “But we don’t even have to use our passports, you know. the only time is when we go to America because everyone always recognises us around the UK.” however John did admit he was already concerned at the thought of losing his quiff. “I think I’d look out of proportion if I shaved my hair, we wouldn’t be ourselves,” he said. “It’d be like we’d had plastic surgery or something. You know how some people change their noses? Well, that’d be the same if we shaved our hair. “Our fans love our hair. our hair is like the Statue of Liberty or something, it represents freedom, equality, everything.” the pair – who sprang to fame on the 2009 series of The X Factor – will perform their song Lipstick in the second Eurovision semi-final on Thursday May 12, in a bid to win a place in May 14′s final. the uptempo song is also set to be used on ads for Hyundai cars in South East Asia, in a deal which has reportedly landed the boys £500,000.
