Louis Walsh says RTÉ host Doireann Garrihy should leave Ireland because she was made for bigger things.
he, the former X-Factor judge recently appeared on the radio host’s podcast The laughter in your lifeand said he didn’t realize how big the podcast was until it aired.
“I didn’t realize that people were listening to it so much, I decided to do it because I think Doireann is really great but I think she should leave Ireland, I think she was made for the Kingdom. England,” Louis told Independent.ie.
When asked if he could see her present some of the biggest reality shows in the UK, such as Love Island, he said: “I could see her doing everything in England. she needed to get out of here, she did [doing the podcast] very easy.”
After the podcast episode was released, a clip went viral on TikTok of comedian Kayleigh Trappe lip-syncing an audio clip of Louis Walsh.
In it, the music manager said Alexandra Burke and Beyoncé’s famous duet in the 2008 X-Factor final was “fine” as he was shooting for his band JLS to win.
Louis said Kayleigh’s TikTok was “the funniest thing” he’d ever seen and even sent it to Simon Cowell, although in the clip it was said the X-Factor judge “hit a nasty blow” to him by sabotaging JLS’s chances of winning by defending Beyoncé Cho’s show.
“It was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, I sent that out to everyone,” he said.

“She [Kayleigh] made me tee off with all the facial expressions and everything, it’s exactly like I said, I love it. “
Louis said it was “absolutely true” that he just thought Alexandra Burke and Beyoncés’ performance was “fine”.
“I want JLS to win, it’s all true,” he said.
“I have sent [the video] with Simon and he loves it because it’s all true, everything on X-Factor is real and no one believes it.
“It’s all real, and that’s the scary thing.”
Speaking of Irish talents, Louis said he loves Kodaline, and believes they are “made for bigger things”.
“I think they are the best musicians around,” he said.
“Dermot [Kennedy] is doing great and Hozier, of course, is full of new people, you just go down to Grafton St any day and you’ll hear great music. “
