X Factor: First Look At Louis Tomlinson, Jess Glynne, Meghan Trainor And Mark Ronson At Judges’ Houses

With X Factor’s Judges’ House airing this weekend, photos have been released giving us a first look at One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, Jess Glynne, Meghan Trainor, and Mark Ronson joining the judges in their exotic locations.

Alright, so the Cotwolds isn’t exactly generically ‘exotic’, but the house they’ve picked is nothing short of lush (as is the gorgeous countryside).

Anyway, let’s start with Louis Tomlinson and Simon Cowell.

Cor, you could grate cheese on Louis’ jawline, couldn’t you? And that hair - he could do shampoo commercials with that barnet.

Having quite frankly lost all chill when Louis popped up on a teaser clip for Judges’ Houses at the end of the last Six Chair Challenge, we were chomping at the bit to get a look at him replacing Sinitta in the South of France.

Simon and Louis had more important issues to address than comparing hairstyles though, as they had to try and pick just three acts to progress to the live shows.

Yikes.

With Bupsi, Max Stone, Ebru, Anton Stephans, Jennifer Phillips and Kerri-Anne Phillips all fighting for a spot, it was never going to be an easy decision.

Over in Rome, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was joined by pal Jess Glynne to help her with the tough task of waving goodbye to some of her Groups.

All of whom have new names now, FYI.

4th Impact, New Kings Order, Melody Stone, BEKLN Mile, Alien Uncovered and Reggie n Bollie had to bring out their best performances to impress the gorgeous Chez and Jess - but who will Cheryl pick in the live Wembley show?

Suddenly, the Six Chair Challenge seems like a breeze.

Meanwhile, Rita Ora jetted her girls off to LA for some fun in the sun before they got down to business and sung their hearts out for a chance to make it to the live shows.

With the help of Meghan Trainor, Rita had to pick between Havva Rebke, Lauren Murray, Kiera Weathers, Monica Michaels, Louisa Johnson and Chloe Paige.

As shown in the preview photos, Rita hung out with her category around the pool in LA, presumably giving them loads of advice before they sung in front of her and Meghan.

Talk about a daunting task, eh?

Last but by no means least, Nick Grimshaw and Mark Ronson travelled to the Cotswolds with the Boys category for their sing-off.

The dapper duo had an amazing array of talent to choose from, with Che Chesterman, Sean Miley Moore, Mason Noise, Sean Lynch, Josh Daniel and Ben Clarke all making it through the Six Chair Challenge.

There’s been a load of controversy surrounding this category, what with argumentative Mason Noise being chosen as Tom Bleasby’s replacement.

However, since he was in front of two important figures in the music industry in the Cotswolds, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that he was on his very best behaviour.

Contestants won’t find out whether they’re through to the live shows or not until this weekend, where their fate will be decided LIVE from Wembley.

Good luck, everyone.
