Louis Tomlinson’s reign as an X Factor judge ends today with the final results show. It’s been a wild ride since the announcement in July. Louis received overall positive comments for his judging, with many people enjoying his constructive criticism of contestants, which was seen as fair and caring. He truly seemed to want to help contestants grow and get better. There were several comments from contestants about the long hours he’d put in at the X Factor house to help his boys category and how “real” he was.
While many people were concerned about X Factor slowing Louis’ solo debut, it has given people a chance to get to know Louis if they weren’t familiar with him before and also has given people a chance to see him beyond the tabloid headlines.
Fellow One Direction bandmate, Niall Horan, was in the audience last night and even posted a video of himself shouting “Tommo!” to Louis.
Fans are eagerly awaiting news of Louis’ new music once X Factor ends tonight. We should be getting a single this month with an album release looking more likely for early 2019.
