X Factor judge lays into Irish star with shocking statement


Irish X Factor judge Louis Walsh has had a massive go at singer Bressie – saying he has no right to judge other people’s talents!

Louis said the former Blizzards singer is in no position to be judging hopeful musicians because he has never had a hit himself.

While the former manager of Boyzone and Westlife thinks Dolores O’Riordan is a hit on the show, he thinks Bressie should be booted off!

Louis said, “I thought Dolores was just fantastic. She was absolutely natural. She was just sitting there like she was at home watching telly.

“I think she was very honest and very good and she has sold a lot of records, unlike Bressie who has never had a hit.

“He is telling people what to do and he has never had a hit record.

“He should do male modelling. I think he should just forget about the music.”


He added, “I know Dolores and Kian [Egan] have, and Jamelia has had one or two hits but I can’t remember any of Bressie’s songs.”

And in a swipe at the Voice of Ireland Louis advised singing hopefuls to audition for the X Factor instead.

He said,  “I watched it but nothing ever happens to the winner. Look at One Direction, look at Ollie Murs, look at JLS and look at Leona Lewis. The Voice doesn’t produce stars.”
