Jedward Call Out Simon Cowell On Twitter For Removing One Of Their Most Loved Songs
"That’s our legacy! we’re outraged it’s part of Pop culture!"
Jedward fans are uniting online in support of the twins. The Irish singers have called out Simon Cowell as they claim he has removed one of their most popular singles from streaming platforms.
John and Edward Grimes were contestants on the 2009 series of X Factor, where they divided viewers. Some, including Simon Cowell himself, found them “not very good and incredibly annoying” whilst others loved their fun and lively performances.
Since then they’ve achieved cult status, and after a stint on Celebrity Big Brother will forever be a part of pop-culture fandom.
After appearing on the show, the pair released a total of nine singles together. One of which was a mash-up of two hit songs, Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby and Queen’s Under Pressure. If you need a lil reminder on this one we’d highly recommend re-watching the video for it below.
It’s not clear if the twins noticed themselves, or if fans alerted them to it, but they realised this particular song had been removed from streaming platforms.

The twins quickly contacted both Simon Cowell and Sony Music via Twitter to ask why; “Yo @SimonCowell and @SonyMusicUK why have you removed our Iconic 1st single Under Pressure Ice Ice baby from all streaming Platforms and deleted the official music video?”
“That’s our legacy! we’re outraged it’s part of Pop culture! We demand a response!”
As this was the pair’s first single, understandably many fans are outraged as they are now missing one of their favourite tracks; “Its been 10 years and was Number 1 for weeks, the Jepic Grandkids need to be able to stream and download Ice Ice baby – wow we are all under pressure now”
This drama comes as the duo have just released a new single. The song, Taste The Heat is out now and you can watch their latest video below.
