Walsh: “Geri who?”

While Louis Walsh has enjoyed sharing the ‘X-Factor’ judging desk with Nicole Scherzinger, Natalie Imbruglia and Katy Perry, he wasn’t so impressed with having Geri Halliwell by his side. Perhaps it caused flashbacks of his time on ‘Popstars: The Rivals’. Though that show did deliver one of Walsh’s most successful acts to date, so one would imagine he has some good memories of that show, even if it did involve fifteen weeks of exchanging tedious jibes with Ginger Spice and Pete Waterman.

Anyway, asked about the female pop stars who have filled in for the absent Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue at recent ‘X-Factor’ auditions, Walsh told Star magazine: “All I can say is, Geri who? I mean, what does she know about the music business? She got the most boos from the crowd, too”.
