Walsh: Paul should audition again
Louis Walsh has said unlucky X Factor contestant Paul Akister should audition for the TV show again next year.
The Irish judge sent the 24-year-old pub singer home and chose Luke Friend, Sam Callahan and Nicholas McDonald for his final three in the talent show.
Louis said: "Paul is amazing, he's an amazing singer, but it's not just about singing. I think Paul should come back next year.
"And in the meantime work on the personality - he can really sing but work on everything else, and lose a little bit of weight as well."
He told his finalists: "You cannot let me down because I sent one brilliant singer home."
Louis is confident one of his lads will win the show this year.
He said: "Someone's going to go home on Sunday and I don't want it to be any of these three.
"I've got the three best looking guys in the competition, definitely. Kingsland are just OK!
"The last time I had the boys I won the competition, that was series two with Shane Ward.
"They're all pretty different even though they're young guys and I think we're going to surprise everybody."
