If you\'re anything like us, you probably sat down to watch the X Factor Judges Houses with one purpose in mind - to savour every single second One Direction\'s Louis Tomlinson was on screen.
Seeing as he\'s already been there and done the whole thing himself, he was always going to be a great addition to the show, but he was actually even better than we\'d first anticipated - insightful, polite, professional.

Basically, even though we ran out of snacks by the second ad break and had to order an emergency dominos to help physically sustain us, it was a great way to spend a Saturday night.
For those of you who actually have some semblance of a social life, we\'ve collected all the best Louis-related bits right here for your ultimate viewing convenience.
Louis immediately made it known that he was incredibly grateful to be invited back on the show as a judge:
Louis considered helping Simon a real honour. He takes it all so seriously & has so much respect for Simon & the show! Proud mum tonight ❤️

It was all very poignant because only 5 years ago he himself was just a face on a table:
Contestant Jennifer Phillips experienced a bit of a mare when she forgot the lyrics to \'Drag Me Down\' and sang: "I\'ve got a liver for my soul, baby you\'re a bone."
But Louis was still impressed by her vocals: "Great song choice. That sounds great. I\'m intimidated next time we sing it now."
He then starting thanking the contestants by winking and calling them darling and everyone collectively lost their chill:
I never realised that I need Louis winking at me in my life until Isaw him wink right now

Next up was Anton Stephans, whose performance left Louis feeling "emotional", although he did point out Anton\'s tendency to "oversing":
Throughout the whole programme, it was clear to see how happy Louis was to be there:

Bupsi then performed, and Louis repeated her catchphrase: "Ya want nasty, I\'ll give ya nasty"
Louis then transformed into an actual human emoji:
And Bupsi also made him chuckle by saying that she\'s too well known to get a pedicure nowadays:
He was also a massive, massive fan of Max Stone: "He\'s just got that originality. For me, straight away, he stands out."
In conclusion, there was a lot of Louis bopping his head alone to the beat and looking thoughtful:
