Louis Walsh has been let go from the X Factor, the Irish entertainment manager and he was just recently a judge on British television talent show was told politely and in person. Reportedly what Cowell did was tell him in on good terms, as he is to be a judge on the Irish version of ITV’s ‘Britains Got Talent’.
A senior TV source told The Sun newspaper:
”They are close friends so Simon wanted to do this in the right way. He didn’t want to leave the discussion to executive producer Richard Holloway because that backfired so badly when he sacked Cheryl Fernandez-Versini from X Factor USA in 2011.”
The source said that viewers had become ”sick” of the judge, revealing:
”Viewers had become sick of Louis’ constant use of tired cliches and the same old jokes. He’d been doing it for 11 years and it seemed like he was just going through the motions.”
See what happened eight years past Cowell fired the sixty-two-year-old but it didn’t take long to invited him back solely because he missed him, also the reaction wasn’t good and this time he would like to avoid that.
The sourced added:
”When Simon sacked Louis last time, he went rogue and started slagging off Simon and The X Factor. Simon doesn’t want that to happen again, especially because he genuinely loves Louis as a pal, so the Ireland’s Got Talent job will work out perfectly.
”It’s very likely Simon will also invite Louis down to the X Factor this year to act as his adviser behind the scenes.”
Walsh is from Kiltimagh, County Mao and he managed the likes of Jonny Logan, Boyzone and Westlife.
