Jedward’s triplet performs with them at an exclusive secret Three Jedward gig.

Dublin: Friday 16th of September 2011. Three, Ireland’s largest high speed network, together with Jedward have found a third member who has won the chance to live like Ireland’s favourite twins and become their triplet for the day. Lucky Sophie Richmond from Mallow in Cork was chosen from ten finalists from auditions that came in from every corner of Ireland, with the chance to spend the day with Jedward and perform with them at a secret gig.

Ten finalists spanning Cork, Galway, Limerick and Dublin attended the final round of auditions and performed live in front of Jedward. Sophie caught the eye of the duo because of her Jedtastic performance, her presence and her Jedication to the twins.

The Three Jedward auditions were held on-street, and via social media during September, where hundreds of budding Jedwards said ‘S’Up?’ and recorded a 30 second piece detailing why they should be member number three and get to live like John and Edward for a day. 50 Three Prepay customers were lucky enough to receive an exclusive invite to Friday’s secret gig, when they received an exclusive Jedmail, yesterday at3pm!

Ireland’s most famous twins, John and Edward, teamed up with Three last month to launch S’up?, its latest Prepay plan.  Thanks to the new Prepay deal, offering ‘All you can eat’ data, Jedfans no longer have to worry about data charges and as such have been jedmailing and using their social networking sites to ask each other S’up? and share some Jedspeak without additional data charges. Plus for just €20 minimum top up, S’up includes unlimited any network texts, weekend minutes and Three to Three calls.

Commenting on their newest member Jedward said: “We totally love Sophie, she’s so cool and such an awesome fan – she’s our new best friend, she is the third Jedward!! She has a really cool voice and she blew us away. We can’t wait to hang out with her and perform later this afternoon at our secret Three gig!”

PR and Communications Director, Rachel Channing at Three, said: “We’re delighted to finally crown Sophie Richmond as the third member of Jedward. We had such a touch decision on our hands – so many Jedward fans across the country with such great talent and dedication to our favourite twins. Sophie is, however, a worthy winner and also included in her prize is a signed Samsung Galaxy Europa handset so thanks to “All you can eat data on Three Prepay” she can say “S’up?” to the lads and her friends without worrying about data charges.”

To celebrate ‘All you can eat’ data on Prepay, Three is offering the Samsung Galaxy Europa for just €49 with Three’s “All you can eat” data, giving unlimited internet usage with no excess data charges*. The Samsung Galaxy Europa, Samsung’s ‘Android for Everyone’ Smartphone will be available from all3Stores and stockists and online at Three.ie.
