Louis Walsh Blasts A “Smug” Simon Cowell

Louis Walsh is reportedly unimpressed with the “smug” manner in which Simon Cowell has been acting over the exit of The Unconventionals in last Saturdays X Factor.

Louis told The sun “I couldn’t believe what he did. He was being so smug. Losing these guys so early on is just plain wrong. They’re perfect for the show because they’re different.”

He said to the Mirror: “He has made a very big mistake. They had a lot more to give. They were not ‘diabolical’ at all. They were very different. Simon crossed the line. It’s done. But he has destroyed careers.”

The Unconventionals lead singer, Drew said: “You put your trust in people in the business who are supposed to make the right choices but this didn’t work for us. If we’d sung acappella like people are used to hearing us we may still be in it. All I’ll be known for is crying and wearing dodgy knitwear.”

  1. I didn’t have a problem with their singing, but I thought Drews dress sense left a lot to be desired (yes, you do have to put more effort into it), and his constant blubbing and overwhelming “ME, ME, ME” just got on my wick – personality as well as talent in this type of exposure go a long way and there wasn’t much there.
