Louis Tomlinson Has Confidence in His Category for X Factor - "Full of Great Vocals"

Louis Tomlinson tweeted about his X Factor category today saying, “The last two days have been proper fun and giving me even more confidence in my category. Judges houses is gonna be full of great vocals!” Louis is looking after the boys category on X Factor and his tweet made fans wonder if he just got done taping his Judge’s House segment.

SPOILER ALERT- Louis’ group of boys is made up of Dalton Harris, Armstrong Martins, Anthony Russell, JSoL, Brendan Murray, and Thomas Pound. There were rumors Louis was headed with the boys to Ibiza or Barcelona, but given Louis’ recent UK sightings, some are wondering if they stayed close to home in London.

Louis posted a selfie from what appeared to be the UK on Sunday, was spotted with fans in the UK and took pics on Tuesday, and was spotted again yesterday so he’s clearly had a busy week!

Collaborator Infinity continues to tease the song All Along, which fans found was recently registered with Louis as one of the songwriters. He posted a picture of a screen showing all the parts that went into the song (which he said was not mixed or finished).


Fans are eager for Louis’ album so they’re excited about any possible teasers or hints they get at this point. Besides Back To You, Just Like You, and Miss You, we’ve gotten teasers for several other songs:

Louis’ album should be out later this year or early 2019. It’s likely he’ll release a single around the X Factor finale in December and perform the new single on the show.

Louis Tomlinson Reveals He Auditioned For X Factor 3 Times on Day 2 of X Factor Auditions

The second day of X Factor auditions started off with Louis Tomlinson again meeting fans outside, taking the time to chat with them and take photos.

Once filming started, fan reports began pouring in. Fellow judge Robbie Williams said of Louis: "[He's] incredibly eloquent, thoughtful and smart." Both Robbie and Louis even discussed adding to their tattoo collections together!

Louis' interaction with contestants was again heart-warming and down-to-earth, assuredly because he's been in their place before. Speaking to a contestant, he said, "You’ve made Yorkshire proud, us Yorkshire men wear our hearts on our sleeve.”

Louis also revealed something he'd never previously mentioned: that he'd auditioned for the X Factor three times! He shared the information while sympathizing with one contestant's rejection before running up to her and giving her a hug as she left the stage.


Louis had something particularly meaningful to say to a nervous contestant who blew the judges away with their vocals: "This show is about like people like you who don’t know good they are. That vibrato, I mean technically that was pretty crazy. You took us on a journey with that, and I was not expecting that, so thank you."

Of course, Louis is no stranger to the X Factor stage. His 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.
