The X Factor judges are supposed to be in Kansas today and tomorrow for auditions but there's one judge who'll be absent: Simon Cowell!
Simon's a little under the weather right now battling bronchitis, as pointed out by E! News. The mogul isn't leaving L.A. Reid, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato to pick up his slack. Rather, he got Louis Walsh, a judge from the British version of the show, to pinch hit for him.
Louis managed to hop on a flight to head to Kansas in time for auditions. He's apparently filled in for Simon before on another show, Britain's Got Talent.
Simon is resting up in L.A. at the moment. We hope he's back on his feet soon!
