"We had no breakfast cuz we ate last night! we where hungry it was like Hunger Games the Movie except with Jedward!

"The swim shorts that we had have now given us baby rash! And we are not babies but now we know what it feels like. We where singing our new songs all the way! finishing the lyrics together and mixing it up.

"We started with a smile and ended with a smile and guess what we didn't cough on any bugs or flys!"

The duo were also interviewed by the LA Times and local TV station KTLA.

It has been revealed that a string of Hollywood heavyweights are set to back Jedward to win the Eurovision.

Their mentor Linda Martin says that the pair has a string of celebrity fans which include Colin Farrell, Joan Rivers and Martin Sheen.
