A group of Lincoln students threw bottles at Jedward and then boasted about it on Twitter.
The incident happened on Wednesday at the university's student union venue The Engine Shed.
Brothers John and Edward Grimes - known professionally as Jedward - were performing on stage as part of student night Quack.
Second year student Adam Walford who boasted on Twitter about the attack, saying that his actions were 'worth it,' has made his account private.
Flatmate Lois Bloomfield called it the 'highlight of the night' and congratulated Walford on the behaviour.
Lincoln SU have launched an investigation into the incident and have apologised to the pair.
The Union's Chief Executive Officer issued the following statement:
“The Engine Shed is appalled by the behaviour that took place at last night's Quack and apologises unreservedly to Jedward for the unacceptable treatment that they experienced.
“The students involved in throwing plastic bottles have been identified, and the situation was dealt with swiftly and professionally by the Engine Shed staff, we are now investigating the incident with other agencies as a matter of urgency.
“The bottles were plastic and although no injuries were sustained to either John or Edward, the behaviour is unacceptable, and will be dealt with accordingly by the Students’ Union and the University."
Despite the incident other students appeared to have enjoyed the evening.
