Midnight Memories is one of the 37 One Direction songs that Louis wrote on during his years with One Direction. Louis has been hard at work on his debut album, which is expected out sometime this year. As a solo artist, Louis has released Just Hold On with Steve Aoki, Back To You with Bebe Rexha, Just Like You, and Miss You. We also heard a few snippet that could be from his debut album.
Louis is currently preparing for the Six Chair Challenge on X Factor 2018. The Six Chair Challenge starts taping August 1. Louis will be assigned his category, which we may find out as soon as today. During the Six Chair Challenge, Louis will fill his six chairs with contestants he likes best as they perform. But, contestants winning seats can be booted from their seat if Louis likes a subsequent performer better. From there, contestants will progress to the live shows. Bootcamp has apparently been dropped for this year. 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.
Fans who attended the tapings have appreciated Louis' judging style, which is said to be very constructive, often giving technical advice. He also has comforted contestants who were nervous or upset. Having gone through the process himself, he probably knows all about what contestants are experiencing as they audition.
