Louis Tomlinson is Reportedly Returning to The X Factor… as a Judge!

By  | 

Word on the street is Louis Tomlinson is reportedly returning to the place that gave him his musical start as a judge! Something tells us it’s better to be on that side of the judging table.

While the world (along with Louis himself) continues to enjoy his successful solo career, we’re all super excited for what’s next on the horizon for this former One Direction member. According to reports from both The Mirror and BBC, the 26-year-old is in the middle of signing a deal to be the fourth judge on the next season of the popular UK music competition, X Factor. Other rumored judges Louis would be joining are UK singer Robbie Williams, Robbie’s wife Ayda Field, and Simon Cowell.

“Louis is very much a part of the X Factor family. He’s a close friend of the show and would make a brilliant judge. Simon mentored One Direction and signed them to Syco Records, Now he’s looking after Louis’ solo career – which is going really well,” an insider told The Mirror. “Simon hopes the deal will be done in the next few days.”

Can we just take a moment to say that Louis will make an amazing judge, especially since the show is where he got his start! Not only is the singer a previous winner and a member of the most successful band to EVER come out of the music competition, the father of one has also served as a guest judge on the show before. So, basically what we’re saying is that this is the perfect gig for Louis, next to making music, of course.

Anyway, if Louis is really serious about being a judge on the show, that contract better get signed asap, as auditions for the upcoming 15th season of X Factor start on July 18th at London’s Wembley Arena.
