One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson to become X Factor judge
The X Factor could well have a new judge named Louis on its hands in time for next year’s competition.
Having found superstardom through The X Factor himself, One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson is seeking to help other hopefuls’ dreams come true, by apparently making an ‘informal deal’ to become a judge on the talent show.
Since his band plans to go on an extended hiatus next year, Tomlinson has apparently handed his CV to X Factor head honcho Simon Cowell, to fill his free time.
”I’ve handed my CV to Simon for next year’s show, so we will see how it goes. It’s definitely something I am thinking about. I am the biggest ‘X Factor’ fan and I would love to be there week in, week out and really give that level of passion. I think I would be a decent judge,”
And the baby-faced singer claims he’s ”been in Simon’s ear” about joining the show in a different role, having recently appeared in this year’s “Judges’ Houses” segment.
”I’ve been in Simon’s ear the last few years about helping him out, so when he did actually ask me officially I was honoured. It was more me asking him non-stop, a lot of relentless nagging. I’d love to do more judging to be honest. It’s been great to be involved in the process,”
A source close to Cowell claims that an ”informal deal” between the two has already been made, making it “all systems go” for the new judge.
Speaking to The Sun, said source revealed: ”The producers wanted to see how Louis coped during Judges’ Houses in France. He passed with flying colours. Louis shook hands on the deal informally and it’s now all systems go for next year”.
