Louis Walsh tells Bressie: ‘Give up judging and do male modelling’
RETURNING X Factor judge Louis Walsh has told ‘Voice of Ireland’ coach Bressie to give up his TV role and take up male modelling.
The outspoken X Factor judge took a swipe at the Mullingar native who sits on ‘The Voice of Ireland’ panel.
Walsh claimed that Bressie wasn’t a successful enough musician to justify taking a seat on the show.
“Bressie 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”, the Mayo native told The Sunday Mirror.
“I know Dolores and Kian have (had hits), and Jamelia has had one or two hits buit I can’t remember any of Bressie’s songs.”
The music manager, who is returning to X Factor for a record 11th series in a row, said that Irish hopefuls should audition for the British show, and not waste their time on ‘The Voice of Ireland’.
“I watched it but nothing ever happens to the winners.
“I thought the show was good and I thought the talent was good but I’ve forgotten who won this year and the year before.”
He said anyone who wants to become a star just has to look at the X Factor.
“Look at One Direction, look at Ollie Murs, look at JLS and look at Leona Lewis. The Voice doesn’t produce stars.”
Walsh flew over to Manchester this morning to take part on the judges’ glamour shoot for the new series of the X Factor.
The first round of filmed auditions takes place tomorrow, when Walsh will join Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Mel B on the panel.
