Simon Cowell’s shaking things up for our Brit after pulling out of The X Factor auditions in Kansas City, MO after coming down with bronchitis. In drafted in The X Factor UK judge Louis Walsh to take his place.

From the DailyMail:

Walsh has worked with Cowell for years – and was even fired by him once, before being quickly reinstated on the British X Factor judging panel.
The pair are know for their on-screen bickering – but are firm friends.

Walsh, 59, who has managed Irish boybands Boyzone and Westlife, is jetting to the U.S. today and is expected to fill in for Cowell for the two-day stop in Kansas, which kicks off tomorrow.

“Louis is really excited,” said a source close to Louis. “He’s going to have to get on a jet almost immediately so he can make it in time.”
