Louis. The eldest. The Carrot King. The Jokester.
That's how we know him, and that's how he likes to be known!
Born on December 24, 1991, Lou was the best Christmas present ever.
At age 19, he auditioned as a solo artist on The X Factor UK.
It's a good thing he didn't wait another year!
In the X Factor video diaries, Louis was always the funny one.
In fact, the video diaries are why Lou is still known by some fans as The Carrot King
I told you he was the funny one!
And he has kept everything with him to this day.
Lou is still full of talent, humor and lots of creativity.
Louis is a joy
A delight to be around
Such an amazingly wonderful boy
And his voice is a beautiful sound
