This weekend, four new acts will be added into the mix as the current hopefuls take to the stage for the first of the X Factor live shows.
But in a new twist, the judges will be choosing the wildcards for each other!
Speaking on Loose Women today, Louis said: "There's actually going to be 16 acts. There's four wildcards.
"I cannot tell you who they are, but we all picked wildcards for the other judges. I picked somebody for Cheryl and I think she picked an act for me!"
This weekend, viewers saw Louis break down in tears as he sent home a girl band - that had been put together by the judges - at Judges' Houses.
Louis rarely sheds a tear on the ITV1 show, but he insists it was genuine emotion.
He said: "There were these five girls we put together and I had to say no. They were crying in front of me.
"i wasn't acting! I haven't cried for a long time. It was absolutely genuine. Those girls wanted it so bad."
Louis' current three acts are duo Blonde Electra, a new boy band yet to be named and Only The Young, with a fourth being added this weekend.
Will Cheryl take pity and give him his beloved girl band? Only time will tell!
