X Factor boss Simon Cowell has said he reckons One Direction stars Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson would make good judges on the show.

Harry, Louis and their One Direction bandmates Liam, Niall and Zayn recently appeared on The X Factor in Australia as guest mentors.

Speaking at the press launch of The X Factor USA yesterday, Simon was quizzed on which of the five he'd like to see as a judge on the show in future.

He said: "It would probably be between Louis and Harry."

The music mogul then joked with fellow X Factor USA judge Demi Lovato about her rumoured relationship with One Direction's Niall: "Demi, you would probably choose Niall."

One Direction are currently gearing up to release their new single Live While You're Young, which will be released at the end of the month.

The track is the first to be taken from the group's second studio album Take Me Home, which will be out later in the year.

The boys will be returning to the UK in the new year for their first UK & Ireland headlining arena tour.
