Justin Bieber To Mentor On The X Factor

Justin BieberThe latest super star to join a TV talent show is none other than the tween idol Justin Bieber. The pop star has now teamed up with “X Factor” judge L. A. Reid and has become a celebrity mentor on the new season of the show.  Bieber has agreed to be one of the celebrity mentors who is assigned to one of the judges, Simon, Reid, Britney Spears, and Demi Lovato.

Yesterday, Bieber visited a home in the Hollywood Hills to meet with Reid and his team and to give the contestants of the show some good advice as they compete. It just so happens that Reid is a real life mentor to the young singer. The Biebs actually filmed a small performance for the show and then sat back and watched the contestants’ performances, dishing out the tips. He was also seen posing for the camera and joking with paparazzi who were there outside the house. Bieber tweeted, after working with contestants all day “Long day but great day… just like old times! thanks.”

Bieber will be on “X Factor” during the judges’ houses round. This round is where each of the judges chooses four contestants who will each compete in the final 16. Bieber will be working very closely with Reid’s group, trying to help them better their skills and their chance at winning the competition.

This is not Bieber’s first time on the show. He performed a few songs on the show last season.

It is still unknown which other celebrities have been asked to come to the aide of the judges to help mentor the contestants. Some don’t believe there will be anyone quite as popular as Bieber. Rumor has it that Nick Jonas has been tapped as a guest mentor on the show, and supposedly working with Demi Lovato’s group of singers.

This latest rumor is a bit of a strange pairing, considering that Lovato previously dated Nick’s big brother Joe. Lovato does owe much of her success to the JoBro’s. They helped to launch her career in the music industry, after all. But some are also questioning Nick’s motives for joining the “X Factor” show.  He did campaign pretty hard to get a spot on the Judges panel on “American Idol.” Has he just given up hope and is this the next best thing? Who knows, but with all the changes on reality talent shows this year, it’s sure to be a good year for ratings.
