X Factor 2012: Simon Cowell loves Ella Henderson, Jahmene Douglas, James Arthur – NOT Union J!
Louis Walsh has revealed which acts his boss Simon Cowell favours on The X Factor.
The music mogul is currently in America, presiding over the US version of the singing talent show, but every now and again he casts his eye over the homegrown series.
Speaking on The Xtra Factor Lou Lou admitted that he has been speaking to his old pal and that he already has a few promising acts picked out.
“Simon is in America and he watched the very first show. He loved Ella and he couldn’t believe Jahmene. I had told him about Jahmene and he said ‘I agree with you he has great potential’.”
On who else shone for Simon, Walsh continued:
“James Arthur, they were the three best for him.”
However, the SYCO boss has failed to pass comment but Louis thinks he knows why.
He is sure that Cowell sees the lads as competition to his act One Direction and doesn’t want to build them up. He insisted:
“He knows Union J are a threat to one Direction so he probably won’t say too much about them.”
That doesn’t actually make a lot of sense to us because, much as Simon is sure to be a huge fan of 1D and the millions of pounds they make him every year, if Union J take off in the same way, he has the option to sign them before any other record label and as a result could be in for a double payload.
We can’t see anything for him to be annoyed about there.
Louis could be overstating this a little!
Ella Henderson topped our X Factor chart last night. Check out who we rated and slated from club classics week here and where we ranked Union J and leave your comments below….
