Former X FACTOR judge Louis Walsh has found a new home judging seat… in Blackpool.
Stalwart talent judge Louis Walsh has found a new judging chair to occupy after leaving the X FACTOR this year. Walsh is now set to judge Talent Fest UK, which takes place in Blackpool’s Winter Gardens on 26th and 27th September.
Speaking about his new role as Talent Fest UK head judge Louis said,
“I’m really excited about judging Talent Fest UK. People ask me if I ever get fed up judging talent competitions, but to be honest it’s in my blood and I absolutely love it. Every day is different and you never know who is going to walk in the door. I don’t miss X Factor at all. I’ve so many new exciting projects up my sleeve. I’m looking for someone who not only has excellent talent, but with a great attitude and work ethic. Ideally I’d love to find an artist like Tom Jones with a great soulful voice or even the next Michael Buble.
Who knows what talent Talent Fest UK will unveil and it’s the not knowing and anticipation that excites me.”
We still reckon he’d make a brilliant judge drag on UK Drag Race if it ever makes it over here
