X Factor 2012: Louis Walsh thinks Christopher Maloney will ‘struggle’ – Tulisa hasn’t got much love either!
The X Factor judges were out in force today and they’ve been talking about who they want to win the ITV show on Sunday.
Louis Walsh and Tulisa walked the red carpet together at a press conference in Manchester and it seems they are in agreement about who they are backing in the upcoming final.
Christopher Maloney goes head to head with Nicole Scherzinger’s boys Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur on Saturday and on which of the trio she’s supporting, Tulisa said:
“I want James to win.”
Louis would be happy with either of Nicole’s boys and added:
“[I want] James or Jahmene [to win]. I have backed Jahmene since his first audition when he sang ‘At Last’ in his little blue suit. I thought that’s the winner’ but you never know the public. The public votes oddly sometimes.”
Walsh was asked if he will be disappointed to see Christopher triumphing on Sunday and surprisingly he said no. He thinks he’s destined to fail anyway and explained:
“I wouldn’t be disappointed because I think long term the talent always wins. Look at Olly, look at One Direction…they didn’t win the show but they have amazing careers.”
“I think James is ready made, he is going to have a massive number one record, so is Jahmene.”
The Irish star told Entertainmentwise:
“I think long term absolutely yeah [Christopher will struggle]. He’s a good singer, he’s a nice guy but we’re looking for a star.”
