Microsoft Had The X-Factor

In the world of celebrities every now and then some incredibly random story about somebody’s past appears in the papers and I find myself thinking “how the hell did that story come to light?”

Today I found myself asking this yet again – according to The Sun, X-Factor hopefuls John & Edward (or Jedward) worked for Microsoft in Ireland testing videogames for £50 a day. They described the work as “deadly”.

Maybe they were forced to play Fuzion Frenzy 2?
