Jedward to pull off the biggest gamble in music history?
Jedward have been confirmed as the act to represent Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest and William Hill make them 8/1 joint second favourites to win with Norway and behind 7/1 favourites Denmark.
Atomic Kitten were rumoured to be representing the UK, a claim the former girl group have refuted and despite these rumours, the UK are all the way down at 25/1 to win (level with Iceland).
“Jedward came close last year, eventually finishing a respectable eighth and with another year under their belts, could well do even better in Azerbaijan,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
William Hill Eurovision Song Contest: 7/1 Denmark; 8/1 Ireland; 8/1 Norway; 16/1 Ukraine; 16/1 Germany; 20/1 Cyprus; 20/1 Turkey; 25/1 Iceland; 25/1 UK; 40/1 Hungary; 50/1 BAR
