The X Factor judge wants to find the next big thing


Louis Walsh is said to be on the hunt for a new Irish pop act.

The X Factor judge, 55, hopes to find some fresh talent when he hold auditions in Ireland.

It is thought he is looking for 5 girls aged 15 to 25.

‘Louis has seen a gap in the market for a new girl band asked Kian [Egan] to be part of the new project,’ a source tells the Sunday People.

‘The pair of them will host the auditions and are confident they will find the next big thing.’

The auditions will be held today and tomorrow at The Pod in Dublin, from noon to 6pm.
