The Irish twins argued that prior to their audition the Simon Cowell series had been "all about the voice" and shied away from promoting contestants with entertainment value.
"The year me and John were on The X Factor it was all about the voice and everyone was like, 'Oh it's all about the singing'," Edward Grimes told Lorraine.
"Now they want to find stars. They want to find people who are different."
His brother John added: "I think me and Ed singlehandedly recreated the X Factor show. We made it to try and find somebody who is not just a singer but someone who is everything - someone who is able to sing, dance.
"Someone who has a lot of potential, someone who's not just about singing, someone who can do like everything, become like a brand."
It has been reported that Jedward are being considered to star on next year's series of Dancing on Ice.
