He is joining Simon Cowell, Robbie Williams and Ayda Williams.

This is obviously huge news for the “Back to You” singer and fellow 1D member Niall Horan wanted to share his love and support.
“Absolutely delighted for ya @Louis_Tomlinson,” he tweeted. “Going back home to @TheXFactor but as a judge this Time . Huge news!! @SimonCowell”

But while the “Slow Hands” crooner is pumped for Louis, fans are a big concerned about the new gig. You see, LT has been promising them more solo music for what feels like forever and they’re worried that his commitment to X Factor will hinder him from releasing tunes. LT assures everyone, however, that “music is always [his] priority” and that his release schedule hasn’t changed at all since signing on as a judge.
Gonna do a little video message tonight to talk about everything. Music is always my priority obviously! Love you all
