Fan reports from the X Factor auditions have been coming in and reports are very positive about Louis' role as judge. Fans have commented on how nice he is to contestants, providing constructive criticism and eloquent commentary. Twitter user kjilouis, who attended a taping said, "louis is such a fair and sweet judge, if he has criticisms he phrased them so nicely and said them in a constructive way and he gave people chances when the other judges wouldn't".
Having been through the process himself, he probably understands how hard criticism or rejection can be on a contestant. Yesterday, he spoke of auditioning for X Factor three times before he made it through!
