Louis Walsh NEW Boy Band 2014 Launch

louis walsh
Louis Walsh, the Simon Cowell equivalent on the UK X Factor Judge, has revealed that he plans to launch a new boyband in 2014! He has allegedly auditioned thousands of people to join the new group: ‘I’m doing a brand new boyband that will be ready to go next year. They’re going to rehearse for the month of January, see the record companies in February and take it from there.

No familiar faces, all new kids that have never been on a talent show or anything. I auditioned a thousand!‘ Walsh currently represents Union J, Shane Filan and Ronan Keating. Do YOU think there is room for more Bbritish) boybands?

    People are desperate to create the new One Direction!

    There are too many boy bands; we are repeating what happened years ago during Backstreet Boys days when most lasted less than 2 years. Not too many fans to go around and support them. They will cancel each other out. that’s reality base on past history in pop music.

    this reminds me so much of all these K-Pop singers out there.
    They let thousands of girls and boys audition, they select a few, then let them practice for years and years until they’re finally ready to take over the music business.
    I love K-Pop though.

      The US is the same way, they’re just more sneaky about it nor more upfront. I tip my hat to Korea for being honest about how they go about things.

        Really? I didn’t even know that.
        I get it though, they train their vocals, their dance moves and what not so they’re good performers but idk it’s so artificial to me. Because most of the time they get chosen for their looks.

        • lolumadhuh

          Yep. You see their in the midst of getting rid of Justin Bieber. It’s a cycle baby. The curse of the teen idol.. Only a few make it out (Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, etc)

            How long will I be hearing bieber is on the way out? It’s been 5 years already. His movie may not yet be on fire, but his album has been 1 and 2 worldwide on i tunes for 8 days so far with hardly no promotion except on tweeter; his tour was sold out more times than One Direction’s tour as indicated in Bilboard the other day. And he was just No. 1 on social media’s top 50. He may have lost fickle younger fans, but he has gained many more due to his recent music as tweets show.

          • laura

            You’re right, his new music is indeed good and I quite like it and so do many others.
            But, you can’t deny that the way he has been behaving lately, has made him lose a lot of fans.
            Like I’ve said many times, I don’t think he’s a bad kid. I understand that having a normal childhood is a major role in how children will act later on. The guy grew up in front of the cameras, which isn’t ideal. He couldn’t mess up for so many years, he had to hide shit loads of stuff. So it’s only normal that it backfires.
            I think what needs to happen, is that the guy takes 2 years off. One year to focus on himself, his priorities and his behaviour. And one year to make an incredible comeback.

            I agree with you he has to stop going to clubs so much; his security has not been handling situations right and it has reflected on him. They should be fired or trained better. He also has to be be carefull with whom he hangs out with; Many or most in the music business are pot or drug users. And he has to handle the obnoxious paps better unless like Harry Style he, together with some celebrities, birings a suit to restrain them. Harry won his suit in England. I know much of what he has done for others and he’s a darn good and generous kid but a little naive. He will learn as Justin Timberlake did who also did some crazy things as i could document.

    enough with the boybands!! this isn’t the 90s!

    • laura

      the 90s were awesome though..

      • threelittlebirds

        yes they were.

  • Zaina777

    The possible names for them are Two direction and The other direction.

    • laura

      Or if he wants to be a little prick, he can call them ‘the right direction’.

  • Duckyhoward15
