The Three Jedward Auditions will take place via on-street around the country on five Saturdays with a different county visited each week. Full details can be found on the Three’s Facebook page, where all of the auditions will be uploaded. Those who can’t make it to the Three Jedward auditions on-street can upload their own clips using their Smartphone to www.facebook.com/ThreeIreland. Ten budding Jedwards will have the chance to go forward to meet Jedward and audition in front of them for their chance to make the final cut on the 16th September**.

Three Prepay customers will need to check to see if they have been lucky enough to receive a special Jedmail before the 16th of September! Those who receive a Jedmail will be invited to attend the secret gig.

We can talk, and chat online, like on Twitter and Facebook all the time so we always know S’Up with each other and all our fans! It’s going to be awesome checking out everyone’s auditions and one of our fans is going to get to be part of Jedward for the day. Yeah we can teach them all our moves! Everybody has to check if they’ve got a Jedmail before 16th September. Everybody who gets one is going to our secret gig – it’s a big secret but it’s going to be so cool!!”
