‘X Factor’ UK 2015: Judge Louis Walsh Dissed 4th Impact Again, Called Them ‘Pointless’
Louis Walsh has dissed “The X Factor” UK 2015 contestant 4th Impact again.
Walsh, a former “X Factor” judge and who was replaced by Nick Grimshaw, said in an interview that the Filipino group had no point from “wherever they’re from.”
“Where are they from? They’re really good but I just don’t see the point,” the 63-year-old former judge told BANG.
He previously said the girls should go home because no one would vote for them. However, a source from ITV slammed his comments saying they do not have relevance.
“These comments don’t feel relevant given that viewers have clearly voted for 4th Impact as otherwise they wouldn’t have made the quarter finals,” the source from ITV told Mirror Online.
Louis Walsh did not only throw criticisms against the previous “The X Factor UK” 2015 contender 4th Impact, but at his former colleagues as well, particularly Simon Cowell, 56.
According to him, Cowell has messed with the show “too much” and said the experiment he made did not really work.
Taking note on the recent low ratings of the singing competition, Walsh pointed the finger at Cowell for the failure.
“He’d say, ‘It’s your fault, people are fed up looking at you.’ But it’s not my fault, it’s his,” Walsh said in a report by Daily Star.
Walsh did not spare other personalities in the show as well. He attacked Olly Murs also.
He sarcastically said that Murs’ hosting skills was a “great telly,” pointing Murs’ mistake of calling out the wrong name.
Further, Walsh said Murs was a pop artist “pretending to be a presenter” in “The X Factor” UK 2015.
He did not also spare 4th Impact’s mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini in which he compared her performing skills to be something inferior with Rita Ora.
Walsh was alright with Nick Grimshaw though, whom he said to be someone who has been “thrown in at the deep end.” However, he said he would take his seat back from Grimshaw once he returns as a judge in the singing competition.
Speaking about his return, Louis Walsh said, “I’d only go back when it’s fun and with people I liked.”
