Louis Walsh: I won’t win The X Factor

Louis Walsh doesn’t think any of his groups will win The X Factor this year.

The judge is mentoring the groups – John & Edward, Kandy Rain and Miss Frank.

He reckons Simon Cowell has the strongest category with the over 25s, and we agree!

‘I’ll get into the final, but I won’t win,’ he told journalists at the Pride Of Britain Awards.’

‘Simon always gets the best ones. They’ve all been round the block a fair bit. They’ve all got more experience than mine.’

But Simon isn’t too happy over Louis’ negativity.

‘Oh that’s positive, thanks for taking part,’ he said. ‘They’re not exactly going to have bags of confidence after this, are they?’

‘It’s not a question of being spoiled for choice, it’s how you prepare your contestants on the day.

‘And I prepare my contestants better than the others.’
