XFactor 2012: Louis Walsh claims One Direction are nervous of Union J!

Louis Walsh (X Factor 2012)

X Factor judge Louis Walsh reckons that One Direction will be nervous of Union J!

The Irish music mogul hopes that the boyband will make the final after a second week in the bottom two at the weekend.

Louis said: “I think every boyband watches every other boyband coming up.”

Speaking on the Xtra Factor, Louis added: “I mean they came from this show and One Direction have had an amazing career, so they are probably watching the new kids Union J.

“I think there is room for both bands. There is room for everybody in the music business.”

Also speaking on Xtra Factor, One Direction didn't really have much to say about Union J.

Instead, the boys gushed about James Arthur, Ella Henderson and even Rylan Clark.

"I love Rylan," the group's Louis Tomlinson said. "He's so tall! The show needs someone like that, he's great fun and a really nice guy."
