X Factor UK: Craig Colton "the one to watch" says Louis Walsh

Craig Colton

X Factor judge Louis Walsh has tipped Craig Colton to do well in the competition, saying the 22-year-old Liverpudlian singer is "the one to watch" at the moment. The shy performer has been flying under the radar so far, but is clearly building up a solid fan base having not been in the bottom two yet.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror about the former biscuit factory worker, Louis said: "I love his voice, he absolutely lives music. He is the one to watch. He is so nice behind-the-scenes."

And talking about Gary Barlow's other boys, Louis said of Marcus: "He is brilliant but he is going to split the Liverpool vote with Craig so he might be struggling. He is soulful and likable with a brilliant smile."

Unfortunately Frankie Cocozza didn't quite get such a good review.

"He started off too well and it is only going downhill. He is a bit of a one trick pony. His vocals are not great and he needs to try to turn things around," Louis said.
