I decided to snap Louis Walsh up for an interview the morning after he had just exclusively released on the Late Late show his plans for a new Irish boyband. I quizzed him on both 'The X Factor' judging panels, in a bid to discover who will be sitting behind those desks come next September. Delving more into what Ryan had asked him on Friday night, I found the reason for why he’s taking on such a big task with already so much on his hands. His answer will surprise you all, just as much as it surprised me. Watch the interview to find out more!

"Music Inc." is a brand new TV series for TRTÉ that's giving ten transition year students hands-on experience working behind the scenes in the music business. As one of Ireland's top music industry insiders, Liam McKenna (the former Six star and tour manager for Louis Walsh Management) mentors the young competitors through a series of tough challenges, in a separate area of the music business each week. The tasks are set and judged by a different pop act or celebrity, and include designing and making a stage outfit for Tulisa, shooting a video for District 3, producing a record for The Saturdays and arranging a live gig for Bressie.
Their latest challenge is to act as publicists for Louis Walsh, as he launches the search for his brand new Irish boy band, and looks forward to his 10th year as a judge on The X Factor.
Music Inc. is an original format by Tyrone Productions, that goes to air this autumn on RTÉ2.
