After making his first appearance on The X Factor UK in 2010 as a member of One Direction, Louis Tomlinson has gone on to record five albums, sell over 50 million records worldwide, and win several awards with the iconic boy-band. Since then, the group has gone on hiatus, but Tomlinson made his debut as a solo artist with multiple chart-topping singles.
He also made his return to The X Factor UK in 2015, as a guest mentor at Simon Cowell’s judges’ house. Now, Tomlinson is making his position on the judging panel a bit more permanent. He’ll be joining Cowell once again, this time as a judge for the entire season.
