For all you Jedward fans out there, you can catch them live on a celebrity Google+ Hangout on Air on the Bord Gáis Energy (BGE) Google+ and YouTube pages in a couple of minutes. Last week, the musical twins took over the BGE Twitter account to tweet out to their fans.

Jedward will be live from 12.30pm. You can catch them on Google+ and also on BGE’s YouTube page.

BGE had been running a competition for people to win a Hangout session with Jedward today.

According to Google, Hangouts On Air is available to all brands and does not cost anything additional to set up on Google+. In early May the internet giant began rolling out Hangouts On Air to all Google+ users. Via the service anyone with a webcam can broadcast their conversation to the world.
