Louis Tomlinson may only be 5'9", but according to fan reports, he was exuding BDE as he entered the last day of X Factor auditions, setting the tone for an energetic day of auditions.
The tattoo that Louis got yesterday has been spotted. It's an X (shown below on his arm).
There were several contestants that really seemed to impress Louis. He told a younger contestant, “As time goes on, it become more and more difficult to shock us and you just did that. At 17, this is a massive, massive, insane vocal.” A young father also got a huge compliment when Louis said, "I didn't want to use this phrase, but I think you just changed your life right there." Louis teased the same contestant after the contestant said he started wearing a "man bun" four years ago saying, "Oh, so you're the one to blame."
Louis said to the young father (who got two standing ovations, one after singing acapella): “I didn’t want to use this phrase, but I think you just changed your life right there.”— carme 🌈 (@protectheflames) July 28, 2018
Louis is always supportive of contestants from his hometown and today was no different as he "took over" when he found out a contestant was from Doncaster.
Louis chatted with fans in the crowd a bit and signed his autograph for them. One group in particular had signs promoting Louis' song, Miss You, and he gave them a fist pump.
We have a section here on the site called Everyone Loves Louis and today proved why. Robbie Williams said Louis was the "boss of One Direction," while a contestant said he looks up to Louis.
Speaking of One Direction, two young female contestants were put into a duo and they got a standing ovation. Louis was impressed, saying, “This reminded me of the first time we performed in One Direction. It wasn’t perfect but there were chemistry. You did that in two hours.”
Robbie quipped that Louis "pulled a Zayn" when Louis left for a bit.
A contestant sang One Direction's History and the judges joined the contestant on stage.
The daily banter between Louis and Simon Cowell continued. Louis said, "Simon is being really immature, just give him 30 seconds," when Simon was laughing at a contestant's performance.
The weight of Louis' BDE must have been so great that he (and the other judges) arrived via golf cart for the second taping.
Ever wonder what flavor cupcake Louis would choose between strawberry, chocolate, or red velvet? Chocolate, of course!
