Jedward, the "double divas of Dublin" who had a license to thrill on Season 6 of "The X Factor U.K.," don't usually get mentioned in the same sentence or breath as actual powerhouse diva Adele. Understandable, I suppose. But now Adele and the Grimes twins finally have something in common: They've both recorded versions of the new James Bond theme, "Skyfall."
Yes, I am sure there will be plenty of haters out there who will point out the obvious fact that, well, John and Edward put together do not possess even half the lung power of the peerless Adele. (One snarky blogger has already called this Bond attempt a "Skyfail.") But so what? Jedward's charmed double-life is practically one never-ending madcap action movie in its own way, and this video will still probably be more entertaining than most performances on any upcoming "X Factor" Movies Night episode. So my goldfinger will be hitting the play button on this clip a few more times.
What do you think of the Dublin double divas' cover of this double-oh!-seven song? Let me know.
