Louis Walsh has tipped singer Orla Keogh for success, despite being dropped from The X Factor.
The Dublin singer made it through bootcamp but in a last second cruel twist, didn’t make it to the judges houses.
X Factor judge Cheryl had already picked her to sit in one of the six seats which qualify for judges houses, but swapped her for singer Chloe Jasmine last minute.
“Orla must have a future in the music business. She has an amazing look and Irish charm and confidence,” Louis said.

“I thought she would make the live show. Maybe next year.”
Speaking to the Sunday World, Louis said he’s sure Orla will make it in the music business, and hopes someone will give her a record deal.
“Also I think she could be a great recording artist. I bet somebody will sign her,” he said.
