"Lipstick" was subsequently released as the album's lead single in February 2011. In the final of the competition, Jedward scored 119 points and finished 8th, giving Ireland its best result in eleven years. The single was released across Europe following the final, and three months after its release, it peaked at #1 on the Irish Singles Chart.
In March 2011, a 30 second preview of a song entitled "Bad Behaviour" was posted on the twins' official YouTube channel. A further clip was posted in May, this time of a song entitled "Distortion". Both songs were previewed on tour dates for the Planet Jedward Tour. In June 2011, Jedward announced that recording on the album had been compeleted, and the album was scheduled for release in August. In July 2011, the tracklisting for the album was announced via Digital Spy. On 1 July, Jedward announced that the title of the album would be Victory.

Upon its release in August 2011, the album peaked at #1 on the Irish Albums Chart.
Following Jedward's success in Eurovision, a new version of their album Planet Jedward was released in Europe. Despite its name, it was based around songs recorded for Victory, using seven previously unreleased tracks from the as yet unreleased album.
In September 2011, the album was released across Europe and Asia, complete with three bonus tracks that did not appear on the original version. In November 2011, the album's third single, "Wow Oh Wow", was released.
