American rapper and singer Vanilla Ice (real name Rob Van Winkle) is back in the charts in the UK, thanks to a couple of identical twins.
Young Irish singers John and Edward Grimes shot to fame last year on TV talent show The X Factor. The duo attracted criticism for their unusual performances and their crazy "big hair". But the pair - dubbed Jedward - caught the public's imagination and kept getting voted through to the later rounds.
Dismissed by many critics, Jedward were offered a recording deal through X Factor judge Louis Walsh. The twins' debut single Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby)
has just gone straight in at Number 2 in the UK Singles Chart (just pipped at the post by US group Owl City).
The single's a mash-up of Queen and David Bowie’s song Under Pressure
with Vanilla Ice’s breakout hit Ice Ice Baby
, and features Mr Ice himself in the second half of the song...
