He will apparently be joining Robbie Williams, Robbie’s wife Ayda Field, and Simon Cowell.
“Louis is very much a part of the X Factor family. He’s a close friend of the show and would make a brilliant judge. Simon mentored One Direction and signed them to Syco Records, Now he’s looking after Louis’ solo career – which is going really well," a source told The Mirror. "Simon hopes the deal will be done in the next few days."
While Louis is going to make an amazing judge, we would like to refer to our article "Louis Tomlinson being an X Factor judge is the worst idea EVER".
Hear us out:
Louis hasn't even properly kicked off his solo career yet (where TF is your album man), and he's already being lumped into the 'my career is over so I'm going to be a judge). All offense to Katy Perry and now Robbie Williams. Sorry not sorry!
Honestly, he has a lot ahead of him and while the show and contestants will be so lucky to have him, we don't think he needs to be taking this road just yet!
But you can bet your Adidas tracksuit we'll be watching him.
