Louis Walsh Net Worth $150 Million

Michael Louis Vincent Walsh, also known as Louis Walsh, was born in 1952, in Ireland. Not much could be said about Walsh’s teenage years and childhood. Louis began his career in 1990 as he had an idea to create a boy group that would be like Take That. He succeeded and created a group, called Boyzone. The group released many successful songs and became quite famous in their country. Without doubt, this had an impact on Louis’ net worth. Later Walsh also became a manager for one of the members of Boyzone, Ronan Keating, who decided to have his own solo career. Ronan’s career was even more successful than Boyzone, and this at that time had a huge impact on the growth of Louis Walsh’s net worth. Other groups and artists for whom Louis was a manager include Jedward, Union J, Six (band), Girls Aloud, Hometown and many others.

As mentioned before, Louis is famous for appearing in many television shows and this career added a lot to Louis’ net worth. At the beginning of his career as a television personality, Walsh first appeared on ‘Popstars: The Rivals’. In 2004 Louis made a career decision that later had a huge impact on Louis Walsh’s net worth: he became one of the judges of ‘The X Factor’. There Louis worked together with Sharon Osbourne and Simon Cowell. Later Louis continued working on this show and despite the fact that other judges changed from time to time, he still remained in his position and became more famous. It has also been announced that Walsh will work on ‘The X Factor’ this year. Other television shows, in which Walsh appeared, are ‘Mad Mad World’, ‘Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’, ‘Through the Keyhole’ and others. This of course made Louis’ net worth grow.

Finally, it could be said that Louis Walsh is one of the best known television personalities. His fame has mainly come for being a judge on The X Factor as this show is very popular not only in Britain but also in other countries of the world. Walsh also continues working as a manager for talented and successful musicians and will probably do that for a long time in the future. This, and Louis’ job as a TV personality, will certainly gain him even more money.
