Louis Walsh has refused to make any comments, on claims made by his pal Mary Coughlan about The X Factor.
The Irish jazz and folk singer was a guest of Walsh’s at last weekend’s X Factor show and in a subsequent radio interview, admitted that she had her eyes opened to how the show works during her time backstage.
Speaking on RTE radio yesterday afternoon, the 55 year old admitted that she was ‘intrigued’ by the show, explaining:
“Well you know, let’s not go there but I suppose I got to find out things I shouldn’t know about the ‘X Factor’, but I really was intrigued by the whole way it ran, let me just say that.”
When asked exactly what it was, she had “learned”, she added: “People know things before the show starts, that’s all I am going to say . . . that they probably shouldn’t know . . .”
It was the last thing the show needed, after Saturday night’s fix claims surrounding Amelia Lily and the belief of many viewers that much of what is seen on the weekend’s live episodes is heavily manufactured and orchestrated.
I have edited the post.
Think we should keep it clean in general. These are real people we are talking about here!
Like Doctor Faustus Cowell sold his soul for secret knowledge.
It also explain why they have removed the discussion section on their facebook site!
They don't want people now publicising this sort of stuff.
Amelia was with mankie Frankie hard to kept it clean
So she had her heart broken by a cold hearted Lothario! I understand that he was her first love!
BUT she has pulled herself back from adversity!
Any other reasons why you LOVE Amelia?
She has the same kind of duuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrttttyyyy look as Christina Aguilera.
much of what is seen on the weekend’s live episodes is heavily manufactured and orchestrated.
people can't possibly only now be copping on to this.
........................Kitty, 26, also revealed that all is not well between the judges as Louis Walsh 'egged' her on to swear at Kelly Rowland when she lost in the sing-off.
When discussing whether or not her final goodbye to the show, when she sang a line from Lady Gaga's Born This Way, was organised by Louis she revealed the Irish manager had other ideas.
She said Louis told her to 'jump up on the table and stick your middle finger up to Kelly'.
That revelation will certainly worsen tensions between the judges who are already at war, with Gary Barlow and Louis battling for head judge supremacy and Kelly and Tulisa Contostavlos at loggerheads.
Kitty returned to the X Factor house to pick up her things but it looks as though the other contestants were too busy to see her....................................
LOL go Lulu all for publicity of course Simon has him well trained
If someone says to me that the makers of the show including Simon, DON'T know in advance what way the voting is going before the public announcements every week, I suspect such people are very naive.
Just as it was obvious last year that the gimp Cher Lloyd was the years favoured one - its so obvious that Misha B is now this years primary selection for favouritism.
Both last year and this year they are trying every PR trick in the book and possibly some outside it, to ensure Misha B gets a lot more exposure/PR promotion than the rest.
If they know than aren't they stealing from the voting public. It is constantly repeated that nobody knows what way the votes are going.
What's more apart from last year I don't think that the voting trends worked the way that we thought they were working?
Also why would Simon have got rid of Mary when he was able to make money from SuBo?
OSI keep it clean please. This is a family boards.ie thread.
By the way Misha B fans the haters have struck so get in there and get voting.
Votes cost zero pence from standard BT landlines and from mobiles will not cost considerably more!
Just because X-factor judges/O'Leary/Simon says something, don't mean it true.
I mean even Barlow openly admitted to the public that he lies (to serve a purpose)!
Simon would have seen Subo as a one off and/or wants to keep her that way. It makes her alone PR-wise, all the more special.
If I was him, I wouldn't want to bring/introduce another similar person that might dilute the publicity that Subo brings to the world and weaken any further chances of PR exposure (= profit).
Too many Subo types means eventual market saturation.
OK that's one perspective and if true it would be a very valid perspective. I have a bit of a tin ear though so can't comment further. If indeed SuBo is not **** and MaBy is **** that would explain alot.
But remember MaBy is Irish and used to be a Lesbian.
Did anyone (else) piss themself laughing when she kept going on about her poor daughter who turned out to be about 14?
Did Gary Barlow admit to lying?
Good points about Cowell trying to keep SuBo unique.
If you have any positive opinions about Misha B or Janet D to express don't forget the OFFICIAL Appreciation threads!
