Louis Walsh reunites with The X Factor acts as the 2012 live tour hits Ireland!

Louis Walsh

The X Factor 2012 live tour had a special guest in the form of Louis Walsh when the show hit Dublin earlier this week.

The X Factor judge caught up with the acts as they performed at Ireland's O2 Arena in the city.

The Irish Herald reports that Louis surprised the group as he popped backstage for a reunion with winners Janet Devlin, Little Mix, and of course his own acts Kitty Brucknell and Johnny Robinson.

"It's really nice being on stage here in Ireland, it is really nice, plus the crowds are always great, because we like to party," Janet told the newspaper.

But despite being only a few weeks into the two-month long tour, Janet confessed she wasn't keen on life on the road.

She explained: "I just want to sleep in my own bed, it's been so long. I've really been missing my own bed, it's a memory foam bed, I love it.

"I am planning on moving to London, but only if we can actually afford a house. It would be nice to live there but I'll always miss home."
