Ready for a new Louis Walsh act? It doesn't matter — you're getting one anyway. Louis hasn't ever really had much success with women…
…but in 2009 this lot have better prospects than Stephen Gately's one-time girlfriend (marketing genius) Kerri Ann or — the only girlgrop ever to be named after an STD — Bellefire.
The band includes ex-Girl Thing singer Jodi Albert. It's quite funny actually because Louis is co-managing the band with Kian from Westlife, and you see Kian is engaged to Jodi Albert. They must have laughed when they both got home that night.
Kian: "What have you been doing today?"
Jodi: "I got a job in a new girlband!"
Kian: "That's great news!"
Jodi: "What have you been doing today?"
Kian: "I've been telling people they've got a place in a new girlband!"
The band have been out and about in Ireland recently and a few days ago went on The Late Late show to perform a song. You can watch the clip here. The song's called 'When The Stars Go Blue' and is about dead celebrities. (NB: It's not about that at all.)
(It's a ballad.)
They're not actually called The Fridays, by the way. They don't even have a name yet, but The Saturdays has worked quite well and The Sundays is already taken, and by being a day earlier than The Saturdays The Fridays would have a definite 24 hour advantage. Seriously, it makes perfect sense — if they ever went head to head with The Saturdays in a chart battle they'd get an extra day's sales.
Have you got a better idea for this amazing (TBC) new girlgroup's name? Email them to us at [email protected] and we'll forward the whole lot onto Louis' office. We are sure he will take every suggestion very seriously indeed.
