Louis Tomlinson held back tears during an audition on the first episode of X Factor 2018 on Saturday night. 

Anthony Russell was already known to Tomlinson prior to his performance. He explained how he knew the singer

''So, Anthony auditioned for your show a year ago and he sang 'Issues' and he came in with a black eye for his audition... I've really got to know you over the last year and I think you're a lovely, lovely guy, lad.''

Simon, however, would not let Louis' modesty get in the way of telling the full story. Simon said, ''He contacted Anthony after the show and gave him the help I think you needed at the time.''

According to Digital Spy, Anthony spoke about his departure from the show last year saying, "I auditioned for X Factor last year and it was like fire. I thought, 'My God, I've got a shot at this,' but I started going down a rocky road, making wrong choices… so I had to step out of the competition."

He continued, "I got a message on Twitter from Louis and started chatting to him... He'd seen my story in the papers and he said, 'Do you need help? I want to help you', so I jumped at it.'' I went to rehab for four months, it really helped me, it was a blessing. I wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for Louis."

At the end of Anthony's incredible performance, Louis ran onstage to embrace his good friend.
