It's Sunday, which means it's time for another Sunday Smile and today we've got another Try Not To Smile with Louis Tomlinson challenge. I must confess I didn't make it past the trumpet segment. Maybe you'll last longer!
With all the audition and Six Chair Challenge tapings completed, X Factor contestants will now move on to the Judges' Houses where they'll be whittled down even more in numbers and after that comes the live shows.
The Daily Star is reporting that Louis' Judge's House will be in Barcelona, but there's been no confirmation of that yet. The rumored start date for X Factor to begin airing is Saturday, September 1 on ITV, with the live shows starting in late October and running through early December.
Louis was recently in the studio, so fans are hoping the debut album will be coming soon. He reportedly told fans outside the studio that it probably won't be coming out in 2018, which makes sense given his X Factor duties, which would likely limit the time he'd have to promote the album. Our hope is that it drops as an early Christmas present in December if that is the case! He also reportedly told fans at least one song will be released in 2018 so fans anxiously await more news on that.
It's likely he'd perform on X Factor, given that he's performed on the X Factor Finales with Just Hold On with Steve Aoki in 2016 and Miss You in 2017. If you missed either of those performances, check them out below!
Tonight is the Teen Choice Awards and Louis is nominated for Best Male Artist. While Entertainment Tonight is reporting Louis is "set to grace" the Forum in LA, fans are wondering if he'll appear by video on in person. Louis won a Teen Choice Award last year for Choice Collaboration with Steve Aoki for Just Hold On and fans are hoping he'll add Best Male Artist 2018 to his collection.
