X Factor 2012: Louis Walsh "happy-ish" with his category

Louis Walsh (X Factor 2012)

X Factor judge Louis Walsh has said he's "happy-ish" with the category he's been given this year.

The Irish music mogul is rumoured to have been given the groups, again, but was tight lipped when asked.

But he did say: "I don't know who's going to win, at the moment there's talent in every category, it's up to public, They decide the winner

"I always make the most of my category, I'm happy with my category... I'm happyish."

Louis previously teased that he had been promised a good category this year, after some rather unfair decisions in the past.

The Westlife manager is the show’s longest running judge and now in his ninth series, the Irish music mogul has appeared on every single show.

However over the years he’s usually been put in charge of either the groups or Overs, with Louis only having had any other category in the second series.

Although he did win with Shayne Ward that year.

Louis joked: “Well the producers have promised me a good category this year so here’s hoping!”

He added: “I’d like to mentor the boys this year, there are some really strong singers in that category.”
