I doubt they have such altruistic feelings (not because it's them but because apart from artists they are products for a record company and people working around them too). They probably do it for the sake of their own reputation, as they obviously don't want to be seen as Eurovision freaks for the rest of their lives. Once "Eurovision" has sinked into your image you can hardly go further with your career internationally. Even Elena has said that on some of her interviews. When she was in UK for promotion, there were business people who told her she was silly for having done Eurovision despite her victory because Eurovision is bad stigma in UK and other big markets, and she couldn't believe it.
What I said they have said themselves actually in an interview. and no, i don't think they care if people see them as eurovision freaks or not, they have never cared what anyone else thinks about them. and they have been to eurovision twice, and their career boomed after the first one, and still going strong after the second one as their new album has topped the itunes chart in several european countries outside the UK and Ireland, and has/will be released on Itunes in USA, Australian and Japan. Their single 'Young Love' has been played on russian radio, swedish radio and even on a radio station in Singapore.
But "never cared of what other people thinks about them". Maybe they do, but now it is also promotion wise and not only personally. They might like eurovision personally but promotion wise?

and about comparing elena with jedward, i shouldn't be comparing them, because they have different careers. thanks for seeing my point anyway!
Miranda wrote:You know, Jedward say so much, so sometimes I don't know whether i should take them seriously or not. They like to say the first things that pops up in their mind.
Becca, they say the thing about Stefan Raab in this interview

I dunno why though seems a bit strange to me as well, I think they should represent the UK if they're not representing Ireland
Miranda wrote:probably not. but i would be happy to if they went again, that means they would come to stockholm, and i get to meet them
