X Factor judge launches cruel attack on boy band

They were once one of the most popular boyband in Ireland and England, but now it seems even their own former manager has given up on them. 

In a rather uncalled for tirade against Boyzone, Louis Walsh has said it is time for the lads to go. 

Talking to the Irish Mirror, the X Factor judge said: “They are a bit beyond it now – it’s time to go. Motown? I mean to do Motown you have to be amazing singers and I don’t know whose idea that was but it was the worst idea in the world, it really was. Boyzone can’t do Motown, the next thing they will be doing Irish republican songs. It’s time to go out with a little bit of dignity.”

Um, ouch! Louis didn’t hold back in his thoughts on Boyzone’s return, did he?! We can’t help but think it won’t be long before Ronan Keating is hitting back at his cruel words!

Ireland seemed impressed by the lads’ performance on last night’s Cheerios Childline Concert, so perhaps there may be a market for their Motown album after all!

And who knows, perhaps they'll take on the Wolfe Tones after that! Louis may be eating his words in the years to come…
