Most people only really know Louis Walsh for his funny smile and sitting at the same desk as Simon Cowell.
But he used to be a bit of a music genius and put together some cracking boy bands like… umm. Well they’re all quite old and we’ve forgotten.
But Louis is back on the boy band train and he’s doing some auditions this week in Ireland.
(Quick note: remind us to buy a Boy Band Train, thanks!)
He’s trying to put together a band to rival One Direction!
Apparently he’s looking for 5 lads over 16. Let’s hope there’s 5 more Niall Horans in Ireland then.
Do you think anyone can take on One Direction? Let us know in the comment box below.
We thought The Wanted could do it a while back but then remembered they couldn’t.
We’ll let you know when the band are up and running.
