Louis Walsh always struck us as the polite judge but it appears as though he really took on Simon Cowell's Mr Nasty persona during his stint on the X Factor USA, when he branded some of the auditions he had seen as "awful".
Speaking about the auditions back stage, Louis can be seen standing with Britney Spears and L.A. Reid talking about the acts they have seen. Trying to be as diplomatic as possible, Britney can be seen saying:
"We have had some bizarre performances overall, there have been good ones but for the most part there's been some one's that..." before Louis tries to finish her sentence by saying: "awful, awful."
Disagreeing with Louis' term, L.A. says: "No you can't say awful, just bizarre. It's been a little suspect but we're hopeful. We're going back now to audition some more and we're still hopeful we'll find it. We just want someone to come out and dazzle us.
"It does not matter if it's a boy, girl, overs, it doesn't matter. We love entertainment. As much as we're here to judge, we're also here to be entertained.
Take a look at the interview with Britney, Louis and L.A!
