Louis Walsh Thinks Britney Spears Was A Terrible ‘X Factor’ Judge
UK X Factor judge Louis Walsh has some rather unkind things to say about Britney Spears in a new interview. The 63-year-old, who made a guest appearance on the US version of the show in 2012, claims the pop icon was a terrible judge. “I was sitting next to Britney Spears and she was kind of gaga,” he said. “Not Lady Gaga, but she was kind of gaga.” It seems his biggest issue lies with the “Make Me” diva’s lack of effort when it came to mentoring.
“We had to take her out maybe every half an hour and then I discovered that she had earplugs in,” Louis reveals. “She was judging people singing but she had earplugs in all the time.” If that’s not shady enough, he then dug the knife in a little deeper — saying Nicole Scherzinger was better qualified for the job because she could sing “unlike other judges on the show.” I guess he’s also dissing Demi Lovato, who was a judge on the show that season.
