For those who weren’t able to tune into the UK show on ITV, Louis performed his latest song “Just Hold On” featuring EDM artist Steve Aoki. While it is not for certain, the emotional track is rumored to have been about his mother’s illness. “If it all goes wrong / Darling just hold on / Darling just hold on,” the song goes. As HollywoodLife.com told you, Johannah, who died of leukemia on Dec. 7, requested one last thing of her son before she died: that he perform on The X Factor. Although she never got to see it, Louis definitely kept his promise. We are SO proud of him!
The X Factor season finale will continue on Dec. 11, with more live performances and special surprises from Little Mix, The Weeknd, 27, and the contestants, before announcing the season winner! Stay tuned; you don’t want to miss this!
