After 11 years on the prime time TV show X Factor, Louis Walsh is set to judge Talent Fest UK, which takes place in Blackpool’s Winter Gardens on 26th and 27th September. Talent Fest UK host Robin Elliott is delighted to welcome Louis as head judge. Robin says: ”I am honoured to have someone as high profile as Louis Walsh judge our competition. Louis is synonymous with judging prestigious talent shows and he will certainly be a huge inspiration to all our competitors. I set up Talent Fest UK four years ago, however this year has surpassed my expectations and has attracted thousands of competitors from all over Ireland, England and Europe. We have singers, choirs, dancers, actors, acrobatic acts..you name it, Talent Fest UK has got it. The level of talent is exceptional and definitely on a par with Britain’s Got Talent finalists.
Louis Walsh is equally excited about judging Talent Fest UK. He says: ”I’m really excited about judging Talent Fest UK. People ask me if I ever get fed up judging talent competitions, but to be honest it’s in my blood and I absolutely love it. Every day is different and you never know who is going to walk in the door. I don’t miss X Factor at all. I’ve so many new exciting projects up my sleeve. I’m looking for someone who not only has excellent talent, but with a great attitude and work ethic. Ideally I’d love to find an artist like Tom Jones with a great soulful voice or even the next Michael Buble. Who knows what talent Talent Fest UK will unveil and it’s the not knowing and anticipation that excites me.”
