Louis Tomlinson attended the first day of X Factor 2018 auditions today and put his years of musical experience to work.
Fan reports of the auditions say that Louis counseled a contestant that had redone his audition a few times, giving him advice to sing acapella.
He also told another contestant he really believed in them and voted "yes" to the contestant.
Louis also asked a contestant in a hat "Have you got any hair under there?" and proceeded to "hype" the contestant up when the contestant was shy about being bald.

Louis' own X Factor audition was in 2010 for Season 7, where he sang "Hey There, Delilah" and made it through to the next round. During bootcamp, he didn't make it through as a solo act, but was combined with four other boys - Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik to form One Direction...and the rest is history! Louis was a prolific songwriter during his time in One Direction, writing on 37 of their hits.
