How was it for you? Marty and Jedward's post-show chat

How did we do?

It was 4am in the Hyatt hotel in Baku on Wednesday morning when I snapped Jedward meeting RTé's official commentator, Marty Whelan, to compare notes on how both had done in Tuesday night's first semi-final.

With pal Larry Gogan missing his first Eurovision since 1983, Marty claimed he had plenty of company.

"A man with a moustache in Baku gets plenty of attention."

So do blondes, as Jedward's backing singer Leanne Moore found.

With blondes a rarity in Azerbaijan, the pretty former You're A Star winner stopped traffic every time she left her hotel -- so much so that she was given a police escort for trips to a nearby shop.
