The ONLY remaining X Factor judge Louis Walsh wants US popstar Katy Perry and Sharon Osbourne on the show this year. The Irish music mogul told the BBC that the male judge - thought to be Gary Barlow - has been "sorted" and bosses are now after two new female judges for the 2011 series.
"They're looking for two girls," Louis Walsh told Newsbeat yesterday. "I really don't know who they are and that's absolutely 100% honest.
"I'd like Katy Perry and I would like Sharon Osbourne. They would be my two favourites. People who are feisty."
Louis is the only judge who will remain on this year's show from last year's line up, with Cheryl Cole and Simon moving to The X Factor USA and Dannii Minogue (supposedly) quitting due to schedule clashes.
Louis admitted: "I will miss both for different reasons. They're annoying both of them and I'm glad that they're gone, but I will miss them. You do become friends with people."
And finally Louis seemed to hint that Gary Barlow was the mystery new male judge, saying: "He's my favourite pop star in the UK."
The new X Factor 2011 panel is due to be announced soon.
