Louis Walsh: I'm Sick of the Spice Girls
- X Factor judge launches attack on Posh and co., Robbie Williams and Will Young get it too

Louis Walsh: IThe Spice Girls are talentless and unattractive, according to music mogul
Louis Walsh.

The Irish X Factor judge claims the recently reunited girl band can't sing
and are uglier than Girls Aloud - who he previously managed.

Louis raged: "The Spice Girls are very lucky and very overrated.

"They're only reuniting because they have nothing else to do, nothing else
is happening in their lives. One's just the wife of a soccer star and the
others are not on the radar. They're well past their sell-by date.

"They're nice girls but just too overrated. I'm sick of them.

"None of them can sing and their music is not half as good as Girls Aloud's.
Girls Aloud are also better looking.

"The Spice Girls appealed to little girls. It wasn't good music. Those girls
are just not talented - one-trick ponies."

The 55-year-old also slammed Robbie Williams and Will Young.

He said: "It's great what's happened with Take That getting back together,
and they didn't need Robbie. He's overrated and has lost his sense of
reality. He should be grateful that he has been so successful with not a lot
of talent. I don't like his voice."

Louis insists he does enjoy Will's music, but can't stand his personality.

He added: "Will Young is too pretentious. His albums have done well. Leave Right Now was a fantastic song, but I'm not keen on him."

But Louis has nothing but praise for fresh British talents Lily Allen and
Amy Winehouse.

He said: "I love Lily Allen, and I especially love Amy Winehouse.

"These are talented girls who also have charisma. Both are representing UK
talent abroad. Give me Amy Winehouse's music any day. She makes credible
music."
