Early Life & Career
Louis Tomlinson was born as Louis Troy Austin in England but went on to take up his stepfather’s surname (Mark Tomlinson) after his parents split up when he was just a baby.
Studying at Hall Cross School gave Tomlinson the right opportunity to be a part of the school’s high school musical production.
Playing the lead role in one such production, Grease, gave him the confidence and determination to audition for ‘The X Factor’, a television musical competition program that nurtures budding talents.
Luck was not with Louis Tomlinson when he auditioned for the musical competition in 2009 as he was rejected.
But this star singer realized that luck favors the hardworking and in 2010 he once again auditioned for the seventh series of the program where Tomlinson was eliminated once again before the final round.
But after suggestions from the guest judge, Nicole Scherzinger, he was united with four other fellow competitors. The team came up with an exclusive group name called ‘One Direction’.
Though the team did not win the competition they were smart enough to secure a place for themselves signing a contract with Simon Cowell for his music label.
Performances & Awards
One Direction’s debut single, ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ that was released in 2011 reached the No. 1 position in the UK and several other countries around the world.
