Another day, and another tabloid story regarding one of the contestants from this season of “The X Factor” UK. On Sunday, the talk was all about the rumors that Rylan Clark could be replacing Olly Murs as the new co-host on “The Xtra Factor,” and today the subject is on something rather different altogether: whether or not Union J is drifting away from their long-rumored choice of manager in Louis Walsh.
At the time of the show’s finale, it was made very clear to many that the boys intended to sign with the man helped build Westlife into a success, and also worked with them through the entirety of the singing competition this year. According to The Sun, the band is now trying to decide between Walsh and Ortise Williams of JLS, a man who knows that modern music industry well in addition to what it takes to actually be in a successful boy band.
Here is what one source had to say on this very subject to the tabloid:
“The boys had a massive wobble over Louis Walsh … Louis has management experience but Oritsé has youth and the knowledge of being in their shoes on his side. People think Louis is past it for a band like this.”
As for who they end up signing with, we will probably not know the answer until some point next year. We can tell you that the group is signed with Sony Music, and they are obviously hoping to try and carry on the success of another popular “X Factor” boy band that went very far in the competition years ago: One Direction.
Regardless of who is actually managing the group, do you think that JLS has an extremely bright future ahead of them? We want to hear more of your thoughts below, and you can check out the latest achievement from James Arthur over here.
